Despite their friendship, Kirstie previously admitted to Good Housekeeping last year that working with Phil can be “incredibly frustrating”, claiming he often gets more career opportunities than her.
When asked about presenter roles still being dominated by men, she commented: “It’s incredibly frustrating. It’s not just on screen.
“I once said to my agent, ‘Phil gets all this voiceover work and I don’t get any; where am I going wrong?’
“And she said, ‘According to advertisers, women make 95 per cent of purchasing decisions and they don’t want to be told what to do by other women.’
“Things like that make it very difficult and there’s a huge amount of it still going on,” she added.
