Are Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield friends?

Fans of this duo will be pleased to know that they're the best of friends – both on and off air.

After working side-by-side for more than 15 years, Holly and Phill have forged a bond that cannot be broken – and one that is full of laughter.

In an interview with Grazia, Holly said: "It is two and a half hours of live telly. If you were to do that amount of live telly with someone who drove you nuts, wound you up, annoyed you in any way.

''Well, I think you can only do that with a friend, day in, day out."

He said: "There was nothing that was being said that had any truth in it whatsoever. There was no and there has never been a feud with Holly.

"When they’re writing 'Phillip and Holly and feud' we couldn’t have been closer because I'd told her my secret and she was holding me together at work."

They regularly post videos and pictures of each other on social media – both on and off air.

When did Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield start working together on This Morning?

The presenters actually met way before they began co-hosting This Morning.

In 2006, they met on the very first series of Dancing on Ice – later that year they presented the first series of the celebrity skating competition and have continued to work together ever since.

In 2009, Holly joined Phill as co-presenter on ITV's This Morning – after replacing long-standing co-presenter Fern Britton.

Is Holly Willoughby married and do they have children?

Yes, Holly is married – and she's just celebrated 14 years of being a wife.

Holly and her husband, TV producer Daniel Baldwin have been married since 2007.

The pair initially met in 2004, when Holly was a presenter on Ministry of Mayhem – and Dan was one of the producers.

Just two years later the pair became engaged – and married a year later in South Downs, close to where Holly was born in Brighton.

The couple share three children, Harry, born in 2009, Belle, born in 2011 and Chester who was born in 20124.

Is Phillip Schofield married and do they have children?

Phill was and is still married to his estranged wife – Stephanie Lowe.

The couple separated in 2020 – after Schofield bravely came out as gay.

They had been married for 27 years before deciding to go their separate ways – but the TV presenter still chooses to wear his wedding ring.

Speaking on Chris Evans' podcast about how long he plans to wear his wedding ring, Phill said: ''That is a very good question, Chris. I don't know. Because I am still married to Steph.

"It is not in my nature to hurt people and so I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I have done that. Indeed I have done that and I tried very hard not to.
