Former host of ITV’s This Morning Phillip Schofield is set to become the host of a brand-new prime-time tv show.

It comes after the shocking news that Schofield would be leaving This Morning with immediate effect amid rumours of an ongoing feud between himself and Holly Willoughby.

The pair's relationship was said to become “cooled” according to The Mirror, with it suggested that they were not talking to each other off camera.

Sharing the news that he would be stepping down from This Morning after 20 years, Schofield called the situation “very difficult” adding that he understood that “ITV has decided the current situation can’t go on.”
