Phillip Schofield’s secret swipe at ex-best friend Holly Willoughby revealed | The Sun

PHILLIP Schofield appeared to make a secret swipe at his former best friend Holly Willoughby.

The ex-This Morning host contradicted Holly's statement, in which she claimed to have quizzed him about his relationship with a young runner.

Speaking to the BBC, Phillip was asked by interviewer Amol Rajan: "Did you ever tell Holly?"

"No god no," he replied, before adding: "I don't know whether Holly ever asked me, she might have done, but I would have denied it.

"Holly did not know. Nobody knew."

Holly was, meanwhile, more certain about their past conversation, writing in a statement when the affair was exposed: "It's taken time to process yesterday's news.

"When reports of this relationship first surfaced, I asked Phil directly if this was true and was told it was not.

"It's been very hurtful to now find out that this was a lie."

We revealed last week that Phillip apologised to Holly for lying to her about his secret relationship — and for tainting her public image.

The pair worked together for 14 years, since 2009, and were inseparable, now they no longer speak.

Quizzed on whether his "broken" friendship with Holly can be mended, Phillip said: "I adore Holly, and I have always adored Holly.

"She's my TV sister, and from my point of view, no, I don't have a problem with Holly at all."
