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.
"Also, is it ever OK to take off your wedding ring during a row and Anton Du Beke is here, he's going Back on tour. Also Leona Lewis, who will be talking being a new mum and new music."
Holly chirped back: "We will see you then, thank you very much indeed."

Phil, 61, quit ITV after coming clean about an affair with a much younger This Morning runner.
Eamonn fumed on an explosive GB News interview: "Not only should Phillip go, but Holly should follow him out the door.
"Holly doesn’t know people’s names, either.
"This is legendary within the production teams, that how distant they are and how they just don’t care."
He went on, blasting: "There are people who say for her it's not about what Phillip did, it's not about protecting the young fella involved.
"There are financial experts who would say it’s about brand protection with her, her company, and advertising deals which looks like she’s distancing herself from to protect herself."
Holly addressed the This Morning drama on the show this morning in a tearful statement.
She told viewers:
"I imagine you might have been feeling a lot like I have…
"Shaken, troubled, let down, worried for the well-being of people from all sides of what's been going on and full of questions.
"You, me and all of us at This Morning gave our love and support to someone who was not telling the truth, who acted in a way that they themselves felt they had to resign from ITV and step down from a career that they loved.
"That's a lot to process and it's equally hard to see the toll it's taken on their own mental health."
t this point Holly's voice broke as her eyes filled with tears and she took a deep breath to gather the strength to continue.

"I hope that as we start this new chapter and get back to a place of warmth and magic that this show holds for all of us, then we can find strength in each other."
