Amanda Holden has taken a savage swipe at Holly Willoughby, mocking the This Morning presenter’s dramatic return to ITV daytime this week in a sassy Instagram post
Amanda Holden has taken a savage swipe at Holly Willoughby as the presenter returned to This Morning.
The Britain’s Got Talent judge made a clear jibe at Holly’s emotional comeback speech from Monday that saw her return to the ITV daytime show after the Phillip Schofield scandal.
Holly’s dramatic address caught the attention of fans of the show with the clip of her asking viewers if they ‘are okay’ going viral on social media.
Taking aim at Holly’s statement, Amanda – who has not shied away from her feelings on This Morning and it’s presenters in the past – directly mocked Holly in her latest Instagram post.
Showing off an all-white jumpsuit, Amanda asked to camera: “Hello! It is Tuesday, are you okay?”
This is a similar introduction that Holly gave when she returned to This Morning after a two week break due to it being half term and following the Phillip Schofield situation.
At the start of Monday’s show Holly addressed the public by saying: “Deep breath – firstly, are you OK? I hope so.”
The statement came after Phillip admitted that he had a relationship with a younger employee while he worked at the popular daytime show.
Holly began the show with her lengthy statement alongside Josie Gibson, when she would usually be presenting alongside Phillip.
She held Josie’s hand as she addressed the situation.
Phillip stepped down from all of his duties at ITV after admitted he had lied about the affair, including lying to Holly.
Holly had previously said that she asked Phillip at the time that rumours emerged about the relationship but he denied them.
After asking viewers if they were okay, Holly continued: “It feels very strange sitting here without Phil and I imagine you might be feeling a lot like I have – shaken, troubled, let down, worried for the wellbeing of people on 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 that they had to resign from ITV and step down from a career that they loved. That is a lot to process.
“And it’s equally hard to see the toll that it’s taken on their own mental health. I think what unites us all now is a desire to heal for the health and wellbeing of everyone. 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, we can find strength in each other.
“And from my own heart, can I just say thank you for all of your kind messages and thank you for being here this morning. Myself, Josie, Dermot, Alison and Craig and every single person on this show will continue to work hard every single day to bring you the show that we love.”
