Fern Britton breaks social media silence after Phillip Schofield interviews

Former This Morning host Fern Britton has taken to social media in the wake of her former co-host Phillip Schofield’s emotional tell-all interviews.

This week Schofield, 61, spoke publicly for the first time since he resigned from his role on ITV’s long-running breakfast programme after admitting to an ‘unwise but not illegal’ affair with a younger colleague.

Sharing that he was too scared to leave the house due to fears he may be ‘spat’ on, opened up about his mental wellbeing and said that he was devastated to realise he might never work in TV again, the interviews sparked a huge reaction.

But despite this, when it came to sharing her thoughts online, Fern, 65, decided to ignore what has been happening with her former colleague completely.

Instead, she posted about what she thought of the recent Ted Lasso finale.

‘Just watched the final Ted Lasso with cuppa in bed . Tears rolling down my face but such a smile in my heart. What a show what a cast what a story ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️,’ she posted on Twitter.

While Fern has stayed quiet for now, back when rumours first started swirling of a fallout between Schofield and Holly Willoughby, 42, some subtle shade appeared to be thrown.

Posting that she had been catching up with Eamonn Holmes, who presented This Morning on Fridays for 15 years before leaving the show in 2021, Fern said they had been ‘shooting the breeze’.

Working with Schofield from 2002 until 2009, there’s been no love lost between the pair since Fern left This Morning in 2009.

In the years since Fern said she ‘walked away and resigned’ after being ‘treated pretty poorly’, while her former co-presenter admitted in his 2020 memoir that when she announced her exit he was ‘heartbroken’ and revealed their friendship had also ‘gone sour’.

This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1.
