Fiona Phillips slams claims she ‘couldn’t stand’ Eamonn amid This Morning ‘axe’

Eamonn Holmes ' former GMTV co-host Fiona Phillips has slammed a Twitter user who claimed she didn't get along with him.

The 59-year-old TV presenter was quick to fire back at one man on Sunday evening who posted: "I think they couldn't stand each other."

Mum-of-two Fiona replied: "Utter b***ocks, but I guess you must know best, being a total stranger whom we’ve never ever set eyes upon, let alone shared confidences with….." alongside several thumbs down emojis.

Eamonn, 60, showed his support for Fiona's comment by replying to her: "That's my Partner ….. u tell him!"

The man who originally claimed that they didn't get along, later tweeted: "I'm obviously mistaken."

Fiona – who is married to This Morning boss Martin Frizell – hosted GMTV alongside Eamonn in 1997 for eight years.

Her comments come following reports that Eamonn and his wife Ruth Langsford have been axed from their Friday slot hosting This Morning.

It's been alleged that Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary are replacing them on the popular ITV show.

According to The Sun, Eamonn and Ruth were told they were being axed from the ITV daytime show a month ago.

As it seems things will switch up very soon, BBC chiefs have wasted no time at all and are making space for the TV husband and wife on their very own station.

An insider revealed to the publication: "Eamonn and Ruth have a huge fanbase and are very experienced.

"They can easily carry any number of shows, so producers at the Beeb are considering handing them a format to front."

The Morning fans have been up in arms about their favourite Friday double act allegedly being "sacked", ever since Fern Britton expressed her shock by re-sharing a tweet about the speculation.

The message read: "What appalling treatment of Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford by This Morning and ITV.

"They have been absolute loyal rocks to that show through turmoil and are beloved behind the scenes. Sad to see."
