‘A smile in my heart!’ Phillip Schofield’s former This Morning co-host Fern Britton shares an emotional post amid the fallout from his ITV affair scandal
Phillip Schofield’s former This Morning co-host Fern Britton has shared an emotional post amid the fallout from his ITV affair scandal.
On Friday morning, she tweeted: ‘Just watched the final #TedLasso 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.’
TV presenter Fern co-hosted This Morning with Phillip Schofield between 1999 and 2009, and the pair had a well-publicised fallout.
Her most recent tweet was notably different to the response she posted last month, alluding to the affair scandal that had engulfed Phil and ITV’s This Morning.
Fern said that she and GB news presenter Eamonn Holmes had been ‘shooting the breeze’ during the catch up, as fans quickly speculated about their topic of conversation.

Hours after Phil revealed his affair with a younger colleague, Fern wrote: ‘Unexpected calls from old mates are so lovely. Just had the loveliest catch up with @EamonnHolmes.
‘I think we have known each other since the 80’s when we were babies. Shooting the breeze.’
Fern’s followers were convinced they had worked out what Fern and Eamonn were talking about, due to both previously appearing as hosts on This Morning.
Phillip Schofield also endured frosty relations with husband and wife presenting duo Eamonn and Ruth Langsford over the years.
Fern’s tweet came hours after Eamonn launched a blistering attack on his former This Morning colleagues Phillip and Holly Willoughby.
