Amanda strutted out of the building with a smile on her dial (Picture: #OVO / BACKGRID) By the looks of things, Amanda Holden couldn’t care less about the drama currently surrounding her and Phillip Schofield. The presenter has kept herself busy and looks to be loving life, despite the chatter about her apparently fraught relationship with the This Morning presenter. The two landed in the headlines earlier this week when it was suggested they butted heads, with accusations levelled Phil’s way of allegedly blocking Amanda’s potential gig of filling in for Holly Willoughby when she took off to Australia for I’m A Celebrity. Keeping up? It’s a lot to unpack. While 57-year-old Phillip took to social media on Sunday amid all the palaver to seemingly lament the drama and accusations, denying the ‘difficult’ persona he’d seemingly been slapped with earlier, Amanda has remained shtum on her own. But the giant smile plastered across her face as she left Heart FM radio studios on Wednesday might say it all – she isn’t about that dramatic life. The presenter is yet to speak out on the allegations (Picture: #OVO / BACKGRID) And today wasn’t going to be that day (Picture: #OVO / BACKGRID) The 48-year-old was having a wow of a time, smiling and laughing for the cameras as she left the station. Ushering in the warmer weather, she sported a pair of white shorts and a beige blouse, with a black Gucci bag slung over her shoulders. It was the second public outing this week, as she previously used her hands to do the talking, flashing a peace sign for waiting photographers on Tuesday. The Britain’s Got Talent judge’s appearance comes amid speculation that Phillip supposedly ‘blocked’ Amanda from hosting I’m A Celebrity in 2018 when Ant McPartlin took a year out. She alleged that the host branded her ‘difficult to work with’ and ‘actively campaigned’ for Rochelle Humes to star alongside him instead on This Morning when Holly was in Australia. [metro-tag-post-strip] Meanwhile Phil defended himself on Twitter among accusations he was manipulative of the production’s decisions, saying he hoped his fans ‘know me better’. He tweeted: ‘The end of another really sad weekend. When you try for 35 years to be the easiest, most fun person to work with and you read such hurtful and wildly untrue stories from nameless “sources”. ‘Obviously I’ll take it on the chin…I just hope you know me better.’ [metro-fact-box id=”7022752″ title=”Got a showbiz story?” icon=”exclamation” /] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/26/morning-star-sophie-prescott-never-wanted-amanda-holden-sacked-amid-phillip-schofield-rift-claims-10072362/” title=”This Morning star Sophie Prescott ‘never wanted Amanda Holden sacked’ amid Phillip Schofield rift claims”] [metro-link url=”https://metro.co.uk/2019/06/25/phillip-schofield-called-arch-manipulator-morning-amanda-holden-feud-fern-britton-itv-10065765/” title=”Phillip Schofield called an ‘arch manipulator’ on This Morning amid Amanda Holden feud”]

Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoy some sugary treats Outside the London Studios (Picture: GOFF) Holly Willoughby and co-host Phillip Schofield were caught in action filming a segment for This Morning enjoying some ice-cream and marshmallows in the open air to celebrate the start of summer. The pair could be seen laughing and smiling as they stuck marshmallows on metal prongs and toasted the treats using fire made out of chopped wood. Not long before, the two also enjoyed Flake ice creams (anything to take their minds off the humid heat outside), especially Holly who was pictured tucking into the sweet treat while wearing a yellow lace dress by Sand Copenhagen. The 38-year-old presenter complemented her classy dress with heeled sandals from Office and a cream coat. She also wore her short blonde hair down in her usual wavy style, making the event just so chic. Meanwhile 57-year-old Phil wore a black jacket, denim jeans an a pink shirt as they filmed together. Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield enjoy ice cream and laughs outside during filming (Picture: GOFF) Holly and Phil joked that it was ‘too cold’ to be working outside (Picture: GOFF) He also made the whipped ice cream himself during the show, reminiscing about his days doing similar work as a kid. This isn’t the first time this week Phil and Holly learnt some exciting ice cream techniques after they also made some using liquid nitrogen on Tuesday. Holly wore a stylish yellow dress during filming (Picture: GOFF ) In videos of the affair Holly can be seen screaming in amazement (and in fear) as she stirs a mixture of raspberries, cream, honey and Frosties as liquid nitrogen is poured in. [metro-tag-post-strip] Both wearing jackets during their most recent filming, the two agreed that it was definitely not the weather to be working outside. A pity, but then again, not everyone gets to enjoy sweets as part of the job.

THIS Morning’s Holly Willoughby squirmed as viewers threatened to switch off after a guest had her spots popped on live TV today. The 38-year-old looked uncomfortable as skincare expert Caroline Hirons squeezed a spot from a volunteer’s face on today’s show. Holly Willoughby squirmed as the guest got her spot popped live on air this morning Caroline was appearing on the show to give viewers a demonstration of how they should pop their spots correctly. Grabbing the guest’s face, the expert began pinching the skin around the spot. But as Caroline went to pop the spot it was clear to see that Holly was not comfortable with the situation as she began squirming. And Phil made a quick joke that Holly was wearing the right colour dress for the job. The spot expert demonstrated the correct spot popping procedure Despite the jokes, fans immediately took to Twitter to share their disgust. One wrote: “Spot squeezing on #ThisMorning urgh no need for it.” Another said: “Spot popping??? Nah you’re alright thanks……catch you guys later #ThisMorning” A third simply wrote: “Time to switch off.” Meanwhile, the spot debate is unlikely the biggest thing on Phillip’s mind at the moment, after The Sun On Sunday recently revealed that the presenter had cost Amanda Holden, 48, a job on This Morning while Holly was away presenting I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. A second star also complained about Phillip’s “overbearing” behaviour. Fuming Amanda complained to bosses that she missed out on a role co-hosting This Morning because Phillip had branded her “difficult to manage”. A former daytime TV executive said: “Phillip actively campaigned for Rochelle Humes to get the job despite Amanda being more experienced — and having been told privately she’d got the gig. Phil is currently involved in a feud with Amanda Holden after he reportedly ‘blocked’ Amanda from standing in for Holly last year “She feels Phil unfairly used his powers of persuasion. She was told he’d chosen Rochelle because she was easier to ‘manage’ on air – and understandably that incensed her.” Amanda raised concerns at a meeting with Kevin in September. The former executive continued: “For years, Phillip has been the king of daytime TV, and seen as a bit of a God, utterly untouchable. “But a few people have had noses put out of joint. Amanda, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, plus other key talent, have been especially vocal. Rochelle Humes was given the job presenting alongside Phillip instead “Things are increasingly toxic when the cameras stop rolling, and a few ITV people are secretly delighted that things are starting to emerge.” And yesterday Fern Britton’s former agent, Jon Roseman has weighed in on their spat after accusing Phil of manipulating ITV bosses. Mr Roseman told the The Daily Mail: “From day one he began to interfere with the editorial content of the show. Fern always left it to the editor, a mistake she attempted to rectify, but too late. “His stranglehold was too tight by the time she recognised what he was up to. Their ability to work together was up there with the Eamonn Holmes/Anthea Turner friction. A Sunday Times magazine cover is thought to have caused tensions between Phil and Holly “He befriended Simon Shaps, the then boss of the network centre. After this friendship, all bets were off … he just got what he wanted.” His claims that the host has a reputation as an “arch manipulator” came after Amanda revealed Phil ignored her attempt to patch things up with an “olive branch coffee” last year. Meanwhile, Holly and Phil’s friendship was tested after a Sunday Times interview featured the pair on the front cover airbrushing a crown onto Holly’s head, but leaving Phillip’s bare. It’s subdeck read: “How Holly Willoughby eclipsed Phillip Schofield and became Britain’s hottest TV star”.  The magazine’s team later wrote a letter of apology to the silver fox’s management. [article-rail-section title=”most read in tv & showbiz” posts_category=”6″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] A source told The Sun on Sunday at the time: “To say there has been a bit of tension is an understatement. It all kicked off after Phil and Holly agreed to do the Sunday Times Magazine interview, part of their contractual press obligations with ITV. “They did it on the understanding they would be given equal billing and the interview would be about their success and popularity as a duo. “But when the magazine dropped, Phillip was fuming that Holly had a crayon crown airbrushed on to her head while he was crown-less and pictured grumpily looking on in her shadow.” [bc_video video_id=”6051542323001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Amanda Holden reveals Philip Schofield ignored her attempt to patch up their feud with an ‘olive branch coffee’ last year”] Got a story? email digishowbiz@the-sun.co.uk or call us direct on 02077824220.

Phillip and Amanda are said to have fallen out (Picture: ITV/REX) This Morning star Sophie Prescott has now said that she doesn’t want Amanda Holden to be sacked from ITV. Amanda, 48, recently reignited rumors of a rift between her and Phillip Schofield on her Heart Radio show, naming the presenter as one of three things she didn’t want to find in her house. Sophie, who hosts craft segments on This Morning, was quoted in The Mirror slamming Amanda as ‘thoroughly unprofessional’. ‘She should be yellow-carded and told to shut up or face getting the sack from Britain’s Got Talent,’ she added. But she has since claimed on social media that she ‘didn’t speak those words’. According to The Sun, Sophie posted on her Instagram Stories: ‘You may have seen some words in the press from me today and it’s not true. I didn’t speak those words, so please do not believe them.’ Sophie appeared with Amanda on the ITV magazine show in October last year. Sophie hosts the crafts segment on This Morning (Picture: ITV/REX) Amanda and Phillip are said to have fallen out after Phillip allegedly ‘blocked’ her from getting major hosting gigs. The Britain’s Got Talent judge was apparently the favourite to join Phil on the show when Holly Willoughby jetted off to Australia for I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!, but Phil ‘actively campaigned’ for Rochelle Humes to step in instead. ‘She feels Phil unfairly used his powers of persuasion,’ an insider reportedly told The Sun. Meanwhile the Dancing On Ice host defended himself on Twitter, saying he hoped his fans ‘know me better’. [metro-tag-post-strip] He tweeted: ‘The end of another really sad weekend. When you try for 35 years to be the easiest, most fun person to work with and you read such hurtful and wildly untrue stories from nameless “sources”. ‘Obviously I’ll take it on the chin…I just hope you know me better.’ Amanda, who seemed to be taking everything in her stride on Tuesday, went on to claim on Heart that she reached out to Phil for a coffee to smooth things over but had not heard back.

Phil and co-host Holly Willoughby were joined by Zoe Laughlin again to have more fun with science on the show. One experiment included putting corn starch inside a speaker and watching the vibrations make it jump around and go solid. They took the action to a paddling pool which had been filled with 1000 litres of corn starch. The idea was that when the liquid was given enough energy it would be solid enough to run across. Holly, Phil and Zoe managed to dart across the surface of the corn starch, and Zoe warned that if you stood still in it you could get sucked down like in quicksand. Phil, spotting a chance to have some fun, stood in the pool for a little too long, and one of his feet was trapped in the quicksand. Phil ran across the cornstarch at first try (Picture: ITV/REX) He then later got his foot jammed (Picture: ITV/REX) ‘I’m gradually going down into that,’ he said and slid further in. ‘I’d get out Phil, ‘ Zoe said, with Holly adding: ‘You’re stuck, aren’t you? High knees was the one thing we said.’ After managing to prize one foot free, he said: ‘That one’s stuck.’ ‘Give it a big yank,’ said Holly. High knees, Holly! (Picture: ITV/REX) Holly darts across the surface (Picture: ITV/REX) ‘Do be careful because you don’t want to dislocate your ankle,’ Zoe warned. ‘It is actually proper stuck. Pull my leg’ the presenter joked. Zoe had to put her hands in and dig Phillip out of the corn starch, as Holly spoke to camera about what was coming up next on the show. The pair had fun making ice cream (Picture: ITVREX) She joked: ‘Nothing to see here,’ just as Zoe eventually managed to set Phil free from the gooey trap. The presenter seemed to be in better spirits than he was over the weekend after allegations emerged that he had ‘blocked’ Amanda Holden from top presenting gigs on This Morning and I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here!. Phil has since spoken out on Twitter to defend himself, calling the claims ‘wildly untrue’. This Morning airs weekdays from 10.30am on ITV.

ALISON Hammond almost got arrested live on This Morning as Italian police tried to stop her filming. The show favourite found herself in trouble with the law as she filmed her segment in Pisa without a permit. Alison is stopped by Italian police live on air Just seconds into filming her live coverage, Alison had only managed to say her location and mention the Leaning Tower of Pisa when chaos ensued. All of a sudden, she was approached by three members of the Italian police force, with an officer appearing in front of the screen. She tried to carry on despite the police presence The show favourite was seen bargaining with the law enforcers The panicked host told presenters Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, who were back in the studio: “Oh my Gosh, we haven’t got a permit, we aren’t allowed to film here. “I’m going to get arrested… I love you loads!” She then turned back to the police to do damage control, overheard apologising to them repeatedly. Back in the studio, Phil and Holly were left gobsmacked. Phil and Holly could only look on gobsmacked [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN TV AND SHOWBIZ” posts_category=”169″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] After pausing to show a ‘Prize Draw’ clip, the studio hosts then went back to see if Alison, 44, was out of trouble – only to find her still filming despite her reprimand. “Look at my hand, I’m actually shaking. They hate me,” she said, before the angry police woman reappeared to warn her again. Phil and Holly then urged their colleague to “Run, quickly” – she took their advice, and was seen running away. Fans were left in stitches by the faux pas. Alison made a quick exit One tweeted her directly, saying: “It was absolutely hysterical watching you this morning. I’m sorry – I know it wasn’t too pleasant for you!” Another said: “Alison you are a legend and you always make me smile even when I don’t feel like it keep up the great work.” The star – who made her name on Big Brother in 2001 – has been showcasing her incredible weight loss in recent weeks. She made fans do a double take last week when she unveiled a new profile picture where she looked remarkably like pop superstar Beyonce. Alison has been compared to Beyonce due to her impressive weight loss The Weight Watchers ambassador has joined a gym Yesterday fans labelled her “Skinny Minnie” as she posed for pictures alongside Minnie Mouse on a Disney cruise ship. She was unveiled as a Weight Watchers ambassador back in April when she came in at 20-stone on the scales. And she has also been incorporating weight training and cardio into her weight loss challenge, as she filmed herself in the gym this week.
