This Morning star Phillip Schofield has finally broken his silence after claims emerged that reportedly some presenters have "complained about his behaviour".
According to sources, his relationship with co-host Holly Willoughby has "become strained over recent months".
The reports also claim that co-star Ruth Langsford has logged an official complaint about Phillip after he interrupted her live on air.
But Schofield has broken his silence by appearing unfazed by the allegations as he celebrated winning an award with Holly.

"The fifth year of the I Talk Telly Awards and we’ve won again," Phil continued. "We can’t believe it. Thank you so much, it’s so lovely. The awards where people who watch the show vote for you are so important."
Holly added: "They're the most special ones for sure, so thank you."
For the last couple of days Schofield has kept a quiet profile across his social media platforms after The Sun claim a number of ITV presenters have spoken to them about a "toxic atmosphere" behind-the-scenes of This Morning.
The publication claims one household name said: "For so long people have been silenced because they are scared for their job.
"If they speak out publicly about the atmosphere they fear there could be repercussions."

A spokesperson for ITV said: "It’s deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip.
"Phillip is a much-respected broadcaster and colleague and this is absolutely not a description of This Morning that we recognise.
"Holly and Phil are great friends both on and off-screen and are popular among viewers and colleagues alike."
This Morning continues tomorrow at 10.30am on ITV.
