Phillip Schofield unfollows ‘former BFF’ Holly Willoughby on Instagram as he prepares for the first National Television Awards.

In a surprising move, Phillip Schofield has unfollowed his former best friend, Holly Willoughby, on Instagram. This development comes four months after Schofield’s resignation from ITV’s This Morning. The timing is noteworthy, as This Morning is defending its title for the best daytime show at the National Television Awards (NTAs) ceremony at The O2 in South East London tonight. Despite this, Holly Willoughby still follows Phillip Schofield on Instagram, amidst ongoing controversy following Schofield’s admission of an ‘unwise but not illegal’ relationship with a younger male colleague on the show.

Ongoing Backlash and Controversy Schofield’s decision to unfollow Holly Willoughby on Instagram adds another layer to the ongoing backlash surrounding his actions and his resignation. Beyond this, there have been allegations of toxicity and bullying behind the scenes at This Morning since his departure.

NTAs and the Duo’s Fate Previously, Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby had been longlisted for the best TV presenter prize at the NTAs, alongside other This Morning hosts. However, only Alison Hammond and Martin Lewis made it to the shortlist. Holly Willoughby remains determined to lead This Morning to defend its title, despite her absence from the shortlist for best presenter for the second consecutive year. It’s worth noting that the pair faced a negative reception from the crowd at last year’s NTAs due to a scandal involving their apparent queue-jumping to see the Queen lying in state.

The NTAs and Competing Nominees At the upcoming NTAs, Alison Hammond and Martin Lewis will compete against Ant and Dec, Claudia Winkleman, and Bradley Walsh for the best TV presenter award. This Morning, which has a history of winning in the daytime category, is up against The Chase, Loose Women, and The Repair Shop for the best daytime show.

Other NTAs Categories The NTAs feature a range of categories, including authored documentary, factual entertainment, entertainment award, talent show, and new drama. Notable nominees include Piers Morgan, Queen Charlotte: A Bridgeton Story, and Happy Valley. The NTAs will be hosted by Joel Dommett and broadcast live on ITV1.
