Holly Willoughby makes Phillip Schofield vow after cold This Morning return

Holly Willoughby has reportedly made a determined vow after her return to This Morning following Phillip Schofield's career-ending affair scandal, to never address it again.

The 42-year-old had a number of weeks away from the ITV show, extending her break when Phil, 61, finally admitted to having an affair with a younger man who worked on the series.

On Monday (June 5), Holly fronted the show once again, this time with Josie Gibson by her side, and she addressed the drama that has surrounding This Morning.

She read a lengthy statement in which she said it was "strange" to host without Phil, but that she felt "shaken, troubled, let down, worried for the well-being of people on all sides of what's been going on, and full of questions".

In a previous statement, she said Phil's lies had been "hurtful", as he hadn't told her about the affair either.

According to an insider, Holly's statement was an accurate reflection of how upset she was by the situation – even if some viewers branded her "cold".

A source claimed to The Sun: "She still feels incredibly angry and upset by his actions and is very much still trying to get her head around it.

"It took a lot for Holly to compose herself and speak about what has gone on in the last few weeks.

"But people expecting her to sit and pour her heart out will be waiting for a long time."

Elsewhere in Holly's statement, she condemned her former colleague and friend Phil again, saying: "You, me and all of us at This Morning gave our love and support to someone who was not telling the truth, who acted in a way that they themselves felt that they had to resign from ITV and step down from a career that they loved.

"That is a lot to process, and it's equally hard to see the toll that it's taken on their own mental health."

She continued: "I think what unites us all now is a desire to heal for the health and wellbeing of everyone.

"I hope that as we start this new chapter and get back to a place of warmth and magic that this show holds for all of us, we can find strength in each other."

This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV
