Eamonn Holmes takes a swipe at Holly Willoughby as she returns to This Morning after emotional statement | The Sun

EAMONN Holmes has taken another swipe at This Morning's Holly Willoughby after she delivered an emotional statement on her big telly comeback.

The broadcaster, 63, reflected on Holly's monologue yesterday as the appeared on This Morning for the first time since Phillip Schofield's affair scandal came to light.

Schofield was axed by ITV after admitting to a fling with a much younger male colleague.

Eamonn didn't have any praise for emotional Holly, but he had lots for her new co-host Josie Gibson.

He said on today's GB News: "The star of the show yesterday, for me, was Josie Gibson. It's lovely to hear a West Country accent, isn't it?"

His co-star Isabel Webster replied: "Absolutely, so warm and there aren't enough West County accents on the TV."

The Northern Irishman hasn't held back on his views towards Phillip or his former paymasters at ITV in light of the scandal.

Shifting attention to government matters, Eamonn couldn't resist getting another dig in.

He said: "There's a big show going on at Westminster today, it's the Culture, Media and Sport Committee and today they will take evidence to scrutinise the Government's Draft Media Bill.

"Answering questions from MPs will be Magnus Brooke, ITV's Group Director of Strategy, Policy and regulation among others."

Isabel said: "Perhaps he's the man behind all the robust procedures that have been quoted so regularly in the last few weeks."

Eamonn continued: "Or perhaps he knows nothing about them, we'll find out today. The Schofield scandal could overshadow the session, of course, and the line of questioning could easily turn towards who knew what and when at This Morning?"

There was an awkward exchange yesterday as Holly and Eamonn's wife Ruth Langsford came face to face on This Morning.

The pair slapped on smiles to greet each other, as Ruth revealed what was coming up on Loose Women.

Eamonn has been making scathing remarks about her since Schofield's scandal was revealed.

He accused Holly, 42, of being "distant" with the This Morning crew – and insisted she should "follow Phillip out the door".

Despite the bad blood between Holly and Eamonn, the handover went ahead as normal.

Appearing to ignore the drama between them, Holly grinned as she asked: "Let's find out what Loose Women are talking about today. Hi there, Ruth!"

"Hiya. Awww, we love Adam Lambert too," said Ruth, before blowing kisses at the camera.

She continued: "We'll be exposing the big social media exam scam that could be affecting your children or grandchildren.
