Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield united display amid This Morning ‘feud’

Yesterday saw the Dancing on Ice stars head to the rink for the glitzy launch, with hosts Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield leading the pack.

The duo smiled as they posed next to each other on the white carpet, with Phil putting his arm around Holly too.

The united display comes after reports of apparent backstage tension on This Morning, which Holly and Phil also front.

A source reportedly told The Sun: "For so long people have been silenced because they are scared for their job. If they speak out publicly about the atmosphere they fear there could be repercussions."

However an ITV spokeswoman denied the claims, saying: "It's deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip. Phillip is a much respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise.

"Holly and Phil are great friends both on and off screen and are popular among viewers and colleagues alike."

Phillip had a very publicised feud with Amanda Holden, after there were reports that she felt he'd blocked her getting the stand-in hosting job on This Morning when Holly did I'm A Celeb in 2018.

Meanwhile, Ruth Langsford, according to The Sun, made a formal complaint against Phil after he cut her off live on-air.

However, Phil and Holly have brushed off any signs of tension between them at the Dancing on Ice launch.

Speaking to the Daily Star, Phil said: "What's lovely for me is that I didn't have a sister.

"I've always said: 'If I could have had a sister, Holly would be my sister.'

"Holly is the sort of person you can go to and you can ask advice. Go in, shut the door. It's nice. It's a two-hour show soon to be two and a half hour show.

"We think at the same speed, we work very well together."
