This Morning bosses REFUSE to confirm if Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby will be on Monday's show | The Sun

THIS Morning bosses have refused to confirm whether Monday's show will go ahead as normal with Phillip Schofield and Holly WIlloughby presenting together.

Phil and Holly usually front the show from Monday to Thursday, but ITV are keeping tight-lipped about whether they will both be on the sofa next week amid reports of 'crisis talks' behind the scenes.

The pair – who are said to have grown distant in recent months amid a 'fallout' – were last seen together on Thursday morning's show, where a body language expert claimed they looked "painfully uncomfortable" next to each other.

At one point they even engaged in a dance to Lulu's hit Boom Bang A Bang, which many viewers labelled as 'awkward' on social media.

That was before Phillip issued a surprise statement to The Sun on Thursday night, admitting "things haven't been easy"amid rumours of a rift between him and Holly.

Holly is said to have been 'blindsided' by the statement and felt 'betrayed' and 'deeply upset'.

And her close pal Dermot O’Leary is tipped as a frontrunner to replace Phil if he does go.

A source said: “Things have been difficult between them, but for it to play out so publicly was the last thing Phil was ever expecting.

“He has spoken with Holly over the phone about how this all played out. He’s devastated by it all and is incredibly upset.”

A pal said: “Phil put out that statement saying Holly was his best friend in the hope it would prompt her to do the same.

“To Phil, her silence is deafening. He feels blindsided, betrayed and has been left really upset by it all.”

Phil lobbied for Holly to join This Morning as co-presenter when Fern Britton, 65, left the show.

Holly joined him in 2009 and the pair — who also co-host Dancing on Ice — have earned 12 National Television Awards between them.

Her apparent determination to strike out alone has sparked speculation as to who might be her next on-screen partner, should Phil be taken out of the picture.
