Holly Morning takes 'dig' at Eamonn Holmes on This Morning as she halts show

Holly Willoughby appears to have taken a dig at Eamonn Holmes after the presenter claimed she didn't know the names of her colleagues. During the This Morning episode on Tuesday, June 20, Holly welcomed Gino D'Acampo to the studio with Dermot O'Leary for a cooking segment.

During the show Gino popped open a bottle of bubbly for the recipe to which Holly shouted: "Oh my god you almost got Steve in the eye! Jeez, Louise. He needs those eyes, he's on camera four."

Dermot then added: "We value Steve. Steve is like the poster boy for cameramen. No one injure Steve, for god's sake" reports Birmingham Live.

Should the TV Licence be scrapped? Let us know

Holly's use of the camera operator's name comes after Eamonn claimed she couldn't name her colleagues. He previously hosted the daytime show with his wife Ruth Langsford, and made the recent comment following the Phillip Schofield scandal.

He said: "Not only should Phillip go, but Holly should follow him close out the door. I don’t think you will ever see Holly Willoughby back on the couch." Speaking on Dan Wootton’s GB News show, Holmes added: “There are people who say for her it’s not about what Phillip did, for her it’s not about protecting the young fellow involved or whatever.

"There are people who are financial experts who will say this is about brand protection with her. She’s got her company and she’s got advertising deals, which suspiciously looks like she’s trying to distance herself from Phillip to protect those.”

He said Schofield “created an atmosphere” on This Morning “where people hated him”. He said: “This nonsense that he wrote today about toxicity, about how (This Morning) is a happy place or whatever, holy God, what planet does this man live on?

“He created an atmosphere where people hated him. People would avoid him in the corridor. He didn’t look at anybody, didn’t know anybody’s name. Holly doesn’t know people’s names either.

"This is legendary within the production team, how distant they are and how they just don’t care.”
