Viewers of This Morning say they’ve captured the tense moment between Phillip Schofield and Loose Women host, Ruth Langsford.
The apparent breakdown occurred while Phil was watching a direct link from This Morning to a Loose Women preview when fans caught the awkward vibe.
Host of ITV with Josie Gibson, after his co-star Holly Willoughby called with Covid, Phil cut Ruth off and the rejection ended without a thank you.
One viewer posted on Twitter: “Not even a ‘thank you, Ruth’ from our Phil.
“It’s great to work in that atmosphere,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
Another added: “Not awkward at all Ruth and Phil.”
But a third commented: “We all know Phil and Ruth hate each other. No need for fake jokes.”
Fans of the Loose Women star may recall that she filed a lawsuit against Phillip and it followed an April 2019 broadcast incident that saw him interrupt her while she he’s showing a preview of Loose women in an episode of This Morning.
Last month, her husband and co-presenter Eamonn spoke out against Phil over his apparent ”passive aggression” attitude when he took aim at ITV after he left.
Talking about their time on This Morning, Eamonn said: “Phillip is known for being sneaky.
“He’s very passive and aggressive. Ruth has to say how she feels, but I feel hurt for her. No one can reject me like that.
“I have a good Belfast street fighter in me… I’ll be direct. I’m not looking for presenters who think they have special privilege or aura or influence.”
Meanwhile, Ruth has faced shock from one of her own co-stars after sharing her newly tattooed brows on the lunchtime panel today.
The Loose Women co-star was “appalled” after she saw a video of Ruth going in for a beauty treatment on Saturday.
Ruth continued: “Carol was horrified this morning when I showed her my Instagram tattoos, like: [buzzing noise]. “
The broadcaster shared the footage with followers on Sunday: “So I ended up biting the bullet! I’ve been thinking about tattooing my eyebrows for a while and yesterday I did the thing. Well, I didn’t do it…my friend Naomi is so professional and so lovely, the owner of @thelittleparlor did it!”
Loose Women airs on weekdays from 12:30 p.m. on ITV.
