Lorraine Kelly describes former ITV daytime colleagues Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby as "good people".

Lorraine host Lorraine Kelly has defended former ITV daytime colleagues Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

The pair's long-running partnership hosting This Morning came to an unceremonious end over the course of 2023, with first Schofield leaving after an affair with a colleague and then Willoughby exiting following death threats against her.

Talking for the first time about their departures, Kelly told womenandhome: "If you'd told me at the start of last year that Holly and Phil Schofield wouldn't be on This Morning, I wouldn't have believed you. But you know what? The show will continue. She'll be fine."

On Schofield, she added: "He'll be fine. Eventually. It will all be OK."

"They're good people, I miss them," continued Kelly, who has been part of ITV daytime since 1988. "They're smashing, they made me laugh a lot and every time I was on This Morning as a guest, they were a delight."

Willoughby returned to work earlier this month as host of Dancing On Ice, while Schofield has kept a low profile following his ITV departure.
