Rylan Clark appears to make cryptic dig at Philip Schofield amid This Morning 'feud'

Television presenting star Rylan Clark has made a veiled suggestion at an ongoing feud with an anonymous TV personality, with hints it could be This Morning presenter Philip Schofield.

According to reports in the Mirror, the former X Factor contestant made a blistering attack on the unnamed television presenter when he explained the "walls are crumbling".

It comes as tensions are said to be rising between ITV presenters Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby as their off-screen relationship has hit the rocks, with eagle-eyed viewers noticing the on-screen tensions despite their return to their hosting duties.

The popular television hosts, known for many years as a duo also presenting Dancing On Ice, had been close pals for years since they started working together but new reports suggest that their friendship has "cooled" over recent months.

Speaking out, Rylan who has also hosted the ITV magazine show said: "I've been in this industry for nearly 11 years, and all I've ever been is nice and polite to people.

"That's starting to pay off for me now because there are people in this industry who aren't like that.

"They think they're something special and the walls are starting to fall."

Speaking previously to Waitrose and Partners Weekend, Rylan added: "People can see through it all now. People can see who are the real ones and can very much see who isn't."

The 34-year-old presenter isn't the only famous face to weigh in on Holly and Phil's recent dramas, with former This Morning star Fern Britton wading in on the chaos with a cryptic social media post.

The former This Morning presenter, who was axed from the show with Holly Willoughby replacing her in 2008, said she had a catch-up with presenter Eamonn Holmes over the phone after he called her out of the blue.

She tweeted on Monday evening: "Unexpected calls from old mates are so lovely.

"Just had the loveliest catch-up with @EamonnHolmes. I think we have known each other since the 80s when we were babies shooting the breeze."

Their conversation came hours after Eamonn hit out at Holly on his GB News show, saying: "I think there should have been a special award for Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby for best actors.

"They may or may not be together on the telly today. The public surely will suss that there's no chemistry, that it's a broken fit between the two of them and that This Morning does not depend on who presents it.

"It's an institution, it will carry on no matter who presents it and anyone can check the viewing figures, there's no difference between whether they present it or anyone else."
