This Morning ITV: Who should replace Phillip Schofield on the ITV daytime show? Yorkshire residents name their suggestions from football manager Sam Allardyce to Piers Morgan

Phillip Schofield has recently stepped down from presenting ITV’s daytime show This Morning alongside Holly Willoughby - these are the celebrities Yorkshire residents think should replace him.

On May 20, 2023, the former This Morning presenter agreed to quit the show with immediate effect after more than 20 years in the role. This move came following reports that his relationship with co-host Holly had deteriorated.

ITV decided that “the current situation [could] not go on”. The strain on their relationship began in September 2022 when Phillip and Holly evoked controversy for not joining the queue with the rest of the public, when filming for This Morning at the lying in state of Queen Elizabeth II in Westminster Hall.

ITV said that Phillip was escorted from the press gallery by government staff, and did not file past the Queen’s coffin; social media users compared their actions with the likes of other celebrities such as David Beckham and Susanna Reid, who both queued for hours with members of the public.

“I think the show should have a whole panel of guest presenters to keep changing things up. Like they say, nobody should be bigger than the show itself. I think on the Tv show Loose women - they do something similar and change it around. They have a whole panel that they mix around each day and week.. It brings in new presenters and dynamics that these TV producers may not have noticed before. They could even bring on some None Showbiz presenters and give them a chance that have never had the opportunity before.” - Carolyn Cartwright

“Stewart Lee and Richard Herring.” - Peter Nixon
