Phillip Schofield drops bombshell

TV presenter Phillip Schofield has made a sudden announcement, stating that he will be stepping down from his role on ITV's This Morning effective immediately.

The decision comes as the popular show has shifted its focus from its content to the presenters themselves, prompting Schofield to take action to safeguard the show he holds dear.

In a statement shared on Instagram, the 61-year-old expressed his pride in covering captivating stories on This Morning throughout his television career. However, he acknowledged that the show's recent turn of events has led him to make this difficult decision. Schofield, known for his integrity and kindness, acknowledged ITV's stance that the current situation is unsustainable, and he wishes to contribute to the protection and future success of the show.

With Thursday's episode marking his final appearance, Schofield expressed his gratitude to everyone who has supported him, particularly the incredible viewers of This Morning. He concluded by mentioning his upcoming involvement in the Soap Awards, ensuring that he will be present for that event.

ITV confirmed that while Schofield will no longer be a part of This Morning, he will continue to host other significant programs for the network, including the upcoming British Soap Awards and a new prime time series. Holly Willoughby, Schofield's co-host for over 13 years, expressed her appreciation for his vast knowledge, experience, and humor, and acknowledged that the absence of Schofield will leave a void on the show's iconic sofa.
