The This Morning presenter tuned in tonight to watch his friend’s first episode of the hit ITV reality show.
But while he was proud of Holly‘s efforts alongside Dec Donnelly, as she stands in for Ant McPartlin, he admitted he wished he was there.
One fan tweeted the silver-haired star, asking: “Jealous yet Phillip?”
He responded: “Sooooo jealous lol”
While another said: “Think your dumped Phil”
And one offered: “I’d be your Holly anytime Phillip!!!”
While others suggested that Phillip should sign up as a campmate instead.
Another fan commented on Holly’s outfit, asking Phil: “Do you think @hollywills is wearing those boot so nothing crawld in her shoes?”
And Phillip joked: “Well I thought we’d agreed she would wear trousers and bicycle clips… she’s gone rogue!”
Phillip is continuing to host This Morning with his new co-host Rochelle Humes.
However, it’s been claimed that the former Saturdays singer’s post could be hanging in the balance.
According to The Mail on Sunday, some people at ITV aren’t happy with her presenting, and have called it “lacklustre” and are annoyed that Phillip “refused” to let Amanda Holden have the job, as he allegedly thought she would be too “overbearing”.
A source said: “All the happy, smiley faces on screen are to be taken with a pinch of salt. Holly is being hugely missed and the view is that Amanda would have been a total star but Phil Schofield didn’t want her.”
