Kim Woodburn blasts Holly Willoughby for not pulling Phillip up on rudeness
Kim Woodburn launches into foul mouth tirade about Holly Willoughby
Kim Woodburn, 81, has urged Holly Willoughby, 42, to step down from This Morning following the resignation of her co-host Phillip Schofield, 61, yesterday.
The How Clean Is Your House? Star claimed the former model had been “tarnished” by her friendship with Phillip and never “pulled him up” when he was on the sofa “upsetting people”.
The presenting duo had hosted ITV’s flagship daytime TV show for 14 years – before Phil sensationally quit on Saturday following months of negative reports about him, Holly and their friendship.
In the wake of Phil’s shock resignation from This Morning, Kim told GB News that she thinks he has done the right thing.
But she also thinks that it is time Holly left the show too.
Kim said: “I think he realises his position is untenable. I think he has used common sense and he is gone.
“You could tell he was king on that show. I mean, he was really ruling the roost.
“And whenever I’ve been on with him, he hasn’t been very pleasant.

“He was downright nasty. He was literally laughing at me sniggering at me.
“The game’s up. He’s gone.
“Now, the only thing I’m praying and hoping is that young Miss Holly Willoughby has the common sense to go,” she added.
Kim said: “She cannot continue. You think of Phil, you think of Holly.
“All these years she’s worked with him. She’s heard him be rude in front of people. She’s seen him on the sofa upsetting people. She’s never once pulled him up on it.
“She should’ve told him to stop.”
Not holding back, Kim then went on to slam Holly’s presenting skills.
She said: “She’s not a good presenter. And if she thinks she can run that show, without Phillip she can’t. She needs to go. “
Kim also said that Holly and Phil should have quit the series when a backlash against them erupted last year. They were accused of skipping a queue to see the late Queen Elizabeth II lying in state.
