Holly Willoughby and Dermot O’Leary squirm as chef Gino D’campo asks if there’s any ‘news’ he should know on his This Morning return following the revelation of Phillip Schofield’s affair
Holly Willoughby and Dermot O’Leary squirmed on Tuesday’s episode of This Morning.
The duo were visibly uncomfortable when Chef Gino D’campo asked if there was any “news” he should be aware of, during his return to the daytime show, after a month-long tour of Italy.
It comes after Phillip Schofield stepped down from ITV altogether, as he admitted to having an affair with a much younger male This Morning colleague.
While previewing his cooking segment, Gino told Holly and Dermot, “Everything is under control. I’m back.
“Any news from the past month I should know? Is there anything I should know?’ to which Holly insisted, ‘No. No news,” as the studio went remarkably quiet.
