SURVEY EXCEEDS 60,000
It comes as a petition calling on ITV to sack the duo has reached 60,000 signatures.
The Change.org petition reads: “Axe Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby from TV,
it was launched on Saturday by Laura Harrison, who called the daytime duo “toxic”.
“If enough people sign up we can show ITV that the public matters,” Laura wrote.

“However, we understand that it could have come across as something else and therefore fully understand the reaction. Please know that we will never jump the queue.”

“They were amazed at how this whole thing has mushroomed. They felt that ITV should have made it clear straight away that it was part of the broadcast.’

The insider went on to detail how Holly was left “heartbroken” that “people think she would act” this way.
They are a tight-knit team, but there are concerns about how this has affected Holly and has left many wondering if she pushed her to come out,” the source concluded.
