Holly Willoughby makes cheeky dig at Eamonn Holmes after his comments about ITV staff

Holly Willoughby has appeared to make a dig at her former This Morning co-star Eamonn Holmes with a cheeky comment.

Eamonn, who used to present the show on a Friday with his wife Ruth Langsford, previously claimed that both Holly and Phillip Schofield, who recently quit the ITV show after admitting having an affair with a younger male colleague, were 'distant' with staff on the set.

He even claimed that the pair didn’t know their production team’s names.

Speaking to GB News, where he is now a presenter, Eamonn said of Phil: “People would avoid him in the corridor. He didn’t look at anybody, he didn’t know their names.”

The 63-year-old added: “Holly doesn’t know people’s names either. This is legendary within the production team. That’s how distant they are and they just don’t care.”

But during Tuesday’s episode of This Morning Holly appeared to prove Eamonn wrong when she gave a shout out to ‘cameraman Steve’.

It came during Gino D’Acampo's cocktail making segment which almost hit Steve in the face as he popped open a bottle of Prosecco.

Holly shouted: “Oh my God. You nearly hit Steve!”

Co-host Dermot O’Leary said: “You almost hit him in the eye!”

“Jeez Louise. He needs those eyes. He’s on camera four,” Holly continued.

Gino then joked: “Camera four is down.”

“No one injure Steve for God’s sake,” said Dermot as Steve then gave a cheeky wave to the camera.

Gino caused even more chaos on set when he made reference to the Phillip Schofield scandal live on air.

After an extended break from the show, the Italian chef cheekily asked whether he had missed 'any news' over the past month upon his return.

Introducing himself, Gino joked he 'wasn't allowed to make anything with aubergines' before he quipped: "Everything is under control, I'm back. Anything in the news I should know?"

Dermot then looked at Holly and said: "This is the last time we will ever see Gino on This Morning."

Gino also hinted that he would be filling Phillip's shoes as a permanent presenter once September rolls around.

"See you all in September when I will be hosting," he quipped as Holly pushed him out of the view of the camera.
