“Phil and I met on this show. There’s a lot of history. You’re going to set me off,” she said.
“My kids really love the show as well.
“I get quite emotional thinking about it, that all of them were carried in my tummy on this show and when we finished I always went off and had the babies.”
Holly went on to say she now brings her three children to the show to watch the contestants, adding: “It’s really nice. It’s a real family show.”
Despite the claims, an ITV spokesperson has defiantly denied there is any “toxic” atmosphere behind-the-scenes.
They told Express.co.uk: “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.”
They also said of the television duo: “Holly and Phil are great friends both on and off screen and are popular among viewers and colleagues alike.”
