The presenting duo, who were once best friends and co-stars for over two decades, have already sparked concerns over their future on This Morning, and are now leading ITV bosses to think about what the future holds for ITV’s Dancing on Ice.
A source told The Sun: “Holly and Phil are the shining stars of Dancing on Ice, but if they aren’t getting on there are fears it won’t work.
“Both Holly and Phil are complete professionals and neither of them would ever let on there was an issue on screen. But now the issues in their working relationship are out in the open, it cannot be brushed under the carpet.”
The source continued: “All anyone at ITV wants is for it to be resolved quickly and for Holly and Phil to be happy.”
OK! has contacted ITV representatives for comment.
The Dancing On Ice concerns follow after Phillip spoke out about his reported “feud” with co-star Holly. The TV presenter has shared a statement as he claimed it had been a difficult “few weeks” for the pair of them.
“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us,” the 61 year old told The Sun.
Yesterday reports emerged that things weren’t “rosy” between Phillip and Holly anymore, and they are no longer “as close” as they once were.
It was revealed that Holly made it clear that she wanted to stay on This Morning if Phill leaves.
“Holly adores This Morning and for the first time in 14 years she has made it clear that should Phil ever leave she would want to stay. They are separate entities. It has become an open secret that things aren’t as rosy as they once were” a source told The Sun.
“To those around them on set, it has become clear recently that Holly and Phil are not as close as they once were.”
The source added that their rift was “clear” to people working with the duo on This Morning, adding: “Professionally you would have no idea there was anything going on because on camera they are acting exactly the same, but behind the scenes their relationship has cooled.”
Holly and Phill have presented This Morning together since 2009 and became “great friends” after first having met as hosts of Dancing On Ice on the same channel.
