Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield snub Eamonn Holmes after This Morning exit

THIS Morning host Eamonn Holmes has been snubbed by former colleagues Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield since his exit.

The presenter, 62, hosted the ITV show with wife Ruth Langsford, 61, for 15 years until August.

Eamonn, who announced a move to GB News on Friday, publicly supported Phillip when he came out on TV last year.

Loose Women host Ruth will remain on the team.

But a telly source said: "They worked together for so long but there’s been no contact since Eamonn parted ways.

"He’s not really surprised and is looking forward to his new gig on GB News.”

It comes almost two years after Holly, 40, and Phil, 59, were blasted by ex-Dancing On Ice judge Jason Gardiner, 50, following his departure from the ITV skating show.

He told the Sun on Sunday at the time: “Since it was announced I was leaving the show I’ve had nothing from Phil and Holly. Not even a text message. It is hurtful, especially because when Phillip was getting a lot of negative attention recently I sent him a message of support.

“I thought they would get in touch but I’ve learned this industry is full of fake and disingenuous people.” The following week both Phillip and Holly contacted Jason.

Eamonn will start his new morning show alongside former Sky News host Isabel Webster, 38, in the new year.
