This Morning's Matthew Wright opens up on atmosphere on ITV set with Holly and Phil amid 'feud'

This Morning's Matthew Wright has had his say on the alleged feud between his colleagues Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

Holly and Phil, who have presented the ITV show for 14 years together, have been embroiled in drama concerning their friendship.

Speculation has been circulating about the duo's future on the show, with ITV bosses said to be planning a huge shakeup this summer.

Following rumours of Phillip's relationship with Holly struggling, he released a statement that reportedly made Holly 'very upset'.

Journalist Matthew, who often appears on the show to discuss current affairs, took to social media to speak about the atmosphere on set.

The 57-year-old tweeted: "Not sure I believe half of what you read about Holly and Phil. Terrific atmosphere on set today as per."

Many followers were delighted to hear some positive news about the pair, however, some insist that it's time for a change.

The pair have continued to host This Morning together this week, with many viewers pointing out the "awkward" atmosphere between the duo.

A source recently told the Mirror: "Phil’s position is looking increasingly precarious. Monday is very much D-day, but the same could apply to any day next week. No one is bigger than the brand."

Rumours have been circulating about who would replace Phil if he got axed with ITV already having a host of seasoned stars waiting in the wings.

The Big Brother star already presents the Friday shows alongside Dermot O'Leary, who could also take over Phil.

Former The Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes often steps in for Holly and has presented the show with her JLS husband Marvin a number of times.

Craig Doyle has been given main presenting duties on This Morning over the last year, teaming up with Alison, Rochelle and Josie Gibson.

Firm favourite Josie fronted the show alongside Phillip in Holly's absence.

This Morning returns tomorrow at 10am on ITV.
