Eamonn Holmes hits back at ITV boss' comments at Parliamentary hearing saying 'I know the truth'

Eamonn Holmes has been very outspoken in regards to the Phillip Schofield scandal, with many criticising him for airing his thoughts, but despite this he still insists: “I know the truth.”

Last month, the former This Morning presenter spoke out during an exclusive GB News interview in which he described the “toxic culture” which he claimed existed on the ITV show.

Eamonn, 63, claimed that ITV bosses 'covered up' the affair that 'everyone knew about'.

His comments were criticised during yesterday’s Parliamentary hearing, in which ITV bosses Carolyn McCall and Kevin Lygo were quizzed by MPs.

Mr Lygo said that the former presenter who had blasted the the channel didn't make the claims while they were at ITV. Adding that it “wasn’t surprising” to hear such comments.

Reacting to that for the first time, Eamonn said on GB News this morning: “There’s a scene in a Few Good Men where Jack Nicholson shouts ‘you can’t handle the truth’. Well, I know the truth and I know what the truth is.

“I know what I know and they [ITV] don’t seem to know a lot. People take sides on these things whether it’s the Boris business or the Phillip Schofield business. But people can’t handle the truth.”

Eamonn also repeated his demand, which he made yesterday that ITV bosses make public the evidence for how their investigation into Schofield’s affair was carried out.

He added: “I’d just like to see the documentary evidence and see what the quiz was and what the questions were. I’m surprised that wasn’t asked for because my understanding of it was both parties were basically asked are you OK, are you OK. Yes? Yes? OK, Both happy? And that was it....”

Phillip made an abrupt exit from This Morning after 21 years on the show presenting alongside his co-host and former friend Holly Willoughby before the news emerged and he lost a lot of respect from colleagues and those closest to whom he reportedly hid the affair from.
