A video of Kim Woodburn calling Phillip Schofield a ‘big phoney’ and threatening to crucify him has been unearthed on Twitter.
This Morning has been plunged into meltdown since revelations over Schofield’s affair with a much younger man at ITV emerged on Friday.
The channel has lost millions of pounds in sponsorship deals and some guests refusing approaches to appear on the programme.
And back in 2017, Kim, 81, had a very heated argument with Phillip during an interview which ended with her looking very angry, while crew members laughed.
Before the interview even started, Phillip and Holly Willoughby watched a clip of Kim from her time on Celebrity Big Brother.

‘You big PHONEY!’ A 2017 video of Kim Woodburn threatening to ‘crucify biased’ Phillip Schofield in heated TV interview has been unearthed on Twitter
Chaos: This Morning has been plunged into meltdown since revelations over Phillip’s affair with a much younger man at ITV emerged on Friday
Phillip had asked Kim what she thinks when she looks back at some of the footage of her rows in Celebrity Big Brother.
Coleen Nolan had been asked if there was anything she’d like to say to Kim, Coleen smiled and said, ‘No…’ Kim replied, ‘I feel the same way dear’… And viewers could hear Linda Robson say, ‘No one likes a sore loser love!’
Kim told Phillip: ‘I look back with sadness that it came to that and I said those things, but I’m not sorry I said them.
‘What was happening to me, you’d have to have been a saint and I’m not. I’ve apologised for using the word beginning with “F” and that’s the only shame I feel.’
She continued: ‘I knew it would be filthy, dirty and stinky.’ Phillip interjected: ‘Aren’t you the best person to clean it up?’
‘No I am not,’ she said. ‘I went on there to be a housemate, not a cleaner.’
Slagging off her housemates, she went on to say that she felt people ganged up on her in the house.
‘They are cowards and it was disgusting. You say one thing to one person and then whoosh,’ she said.
She said: ‘I don’t do trouble but if you bring it to me, I will crucify you,’ while glaring at Phillip
Outspoken: Holly asked Kim why she didn’t just leave if it was ‘hell on earth’ and Kim said she would not lose the money for those ‘nasty pigs’
She said: ‘I knew it would be filthy, dirty and stinky and it was’ and Phill said: ‘Aren’t you the best person to clean it up?’
‘How much did you earn?’ Phillip asked. ‘It’s nothing to do with you,’ she snapped back. ‘How much do YOU earn?’ ‘It’s nothing to do with you,’ he retorted
So awkward: As the show came to a close, Kim glared at Phillip in a very scary stand-off
Row: Kim was famously ejected from the house for her aggressive rant in which she called Jamie O’Hara an ‘adulterer’
Phillip said that people had seemed to get on with her on the first night but her reaction to Chloe Ferry splashing her with water was disproportionate.
‘No it was not, Phillip,’ she said. ‘You were not there. She was jumping around with her private parts out.
‘If you are not going to wear knickers, then keep your legs together. You were not there. I did not dislike Chloe by the way.’
Kim believes that arriving late into the house was her downfall as people who do always suffer.
On the night she had to be removed from the Big Brother house, Kim said, ‘When you go in very late, you’re in for a bit of a wallop anyway…’
Phillip said: ‘But that didn’t happened to Chloe and that didn’t happen to Jessica, they weren’t treated like that.’
Kim replied: ‘They weren’t people that wanted to say a word out of place. They wanted to put up with it and I don’t put up with it. Phillip, you were not in there, I know what I went through. I went through hell on earth. They said, “get back to your cleaning woman”…’
Phillip said: ‘Well you said worse!’
End of the road: On Friday, Phillip, 61, quit ITV and was dropped by his talent agency YMU after admitting to the affair
Holly, a little nervous, asked her: ‘Why not leave if you didn’t like it?’
Phillip Schofield’s statement in full as he admits affair with young This Morning colleague:
I am making this statement via the Daily Mail, to whom I have already apologised personally for misleading, through my lawyer who I also misled, about a story [sic] which they wanted to write about me a few days ago.
The first thing I want to say is: I am deeply sorry for having lied to them, and to many others about a relationship that I had with someone working on This Morning. I did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning.
Contrary to speculation, whilst I met the man when he was a teenager and was asked to help him to get into television, it was only after he started to work on the show that it became more than a just a friendship. That relationship was unwise, but not illegal. It is now over…
I am painfully conscious that I have lied to my employers at ITV, to my colleagues and friends, to my agents, to the media and therefore the public and most importantly of all to my family. I am so very, very sorry, as I am for having been unfaithful to my wife…
I am resigning from ITV with immediate effect, expressing my immense gratitude to them for all the amazing opportunities that they have given me.
I will reflect on my very bad judgement in both participating in the relationship and then lying about it.
‘Why should I go?’ she hit back. ‘And lose all that money, massive sums of money for those bums. Would you lose a house?’
‘How much did you earn?’ Phillip asked.
‘It’s nothing to do with you,’ she snapped back. ‘How much do you earn?’
‘Well it’s nothing to do with you either,’ he retorted. ‘But don’t you reckon you’d have got on so much better if you’d just been nicer? If you’d been a nice person?’
Kim replied, ‘I think I am a nice person. I’d like you to have a word with all the crew I’d ever worked with, I am very very polite.’
‘I don’t know that you always polite,’ he said. ‘I heard about a row you had on Celeb Juice.’
‘Oh did you dear,’ she said scornfully.
She also spoke about her distaste for fellow housemate Nicola McLean.
‘She caused everything. A nasty piece of work. When you have seven or eight people that are frightened to offend you… and she’s a force to be reckoned with.
‘But she hasn’t reckoned with me yet. She told me in no uncertain terms and I thought “you cheeky madam”, and she said “we don’t argue in this house”
‘And I said “says who?” but it was nothing to do with her was it? She’s not momma of the house.”
Phillip replied: ‘But then that sounds like you actually wanted to row…’
Kim said: ‘I don’t want to be bossed around by that stupid woman. I was employed by Channel 5 and I said to Channel 5, if you put me in there, I never look for trouble. But if you bring it to me I will crucify you!’
She continued: ‘Those pigs in there. You weren’t there Phillip. You saw 45 minutes.’
Kim also revealed that she didn’t feel Coleen was a worthy winner.
She said: ‘She was as nice as pie to me but little did I know she was pulling me apart in the smoking area.’
‘I know Coleen and she’s a nice person,’ Phillip said.
‘She’s a horrible person,’ she roared back.
Phillip said, ‘Are you saying that we are bullying you?’
Kim, to Phillip, ‘You are giving me the impression that you don’t know what you’re talking about Phillip. Go in that house for twenty four hours and sit there, then you tell me why I was annoyed.’
Phillip said: ‘I get it, I understand…. But I know why people reacted in the way that they reacted to you because of the way you make me feel sitting on the sofa – you’re already making me feel confrontational… we are just asking you questions, that’s our job!’
Holly said, ‘This is Big Brother, could we split up the argument that’s happening here!’
Kim replied: ‘No you’re not Phil, you big phoney.’
As the adverts rolled, Kim could be seen glaring at Phill in a very awkward stand-off, but after the commercials, Phill said Kim left in good spirits.
He said: ‘Kim left and said to me, “You’re a bit of a b******’ and then gave me a kiss on both cheeks, before saying, “bl**dy good tele.’
Kim has had a number of on air run-ins with Phil over the years and this month branded him ‘an obnoxious, horrible man’.
And now, ex How Clean Is Your House? star Kim, has called out Kim for being ‘rude’ and ‘judgemental’ after news of his affair broke.
She wrote in The Sun: ‘He was almost always rude, judgmental and looked at his guests as if they’d just fallen out of a piece of cheese.
‘It’s astonishing he had the nerve to look down at others given the sordid secrets he was hiding.’
She added: ‘I’ve been told he could be ghastly to runners and researchers, usually youngsters who needed the money and were scared to speak up.’
Earlier this month, before Phillip’s departure from ITV, Kim broke his silence over claims he and his This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby had a backstage fallout and were ‘barely speaking’ off-camera.
Speaking to Dan Wootton on GB News about Phillip, Kim said: ‘I’ve had so many run-ins, he’s an obnoxious, horrible man and I don’t know why he’s still on television.
‘I went on his show and he insulted me, he was rude, he was horrible. He was laughing at me, he was actually snickering at me.
‘He should not be on television, he’s a cruel, brutal little man and he’s full of himself.’
And Kim has since launched a double attack on Holly, claiming the presenter ‘isn’t as nice as she makes out’ after branding her a ‘two-faced b***h’ for allowing Phillip to ‘insult people’ on This Morning.
A mess: ITV bosses are fighting to save the show, with brands associated with the channel having become concerned it is ‘no longer a safe bet’
Following Phillip’s bombshell revelation, Kim doubled down on her insistence that Holly should depart the ITV show while also accusing her of not calling out her co-star’s alleged ‘rude’ behaviour on the programme.
And speaking out for the first time since leaving the show on Monday, Phillip hit out at those ‘with a grudge against me’.
In a statement posted on his Instagram, the presenter said: ‘Now I no longer work on This Morning I am free to say this. I hope you have noticed that it’s the same handful of people with a grudge against me or the show who seem to have the loudest voice.
‘This Morning IS the best show to work on, with the best people. In all the years I worked there there was no toxicity. You can listen to those persistently loud voices if you like. But the thousands of guests over the years, thousands of staff and crew, hundreds of presenters and contributors all know it, it IS a family of wonderful, talented, kind, hard, working people.’
Despite the chaos, This Morning will be aired as normal on ITV today.
Good Morning Britain newsreader Sean Fletcher has repeatedly told viewers the show will be returning as normal.
Taking the unusual step, he read a statement from the broadcaster: ‘This Morning is not under review and there are no plans for the show to be axed.’
