Eamonn Holmes hits back at Phillip Schofield fan after branding This Morning toxic | The Sun

EAMONN Holmes has hit back at a Phillip Schofield fan as he continues his feud against This Morning.

Broadcaster Eamonn, 63, has been very vocal with his opinions on Phillip, 61, following his ITV axing last month.

And it looks like Eamonn still has a lot more to say as he is reported to have hit back at fan comments supporting the ex-This Morning presenter.

One person commented on a post shared by Eamonn: "I'm really disappointed too in the recent behaviour and unnecessary comments.

"Contributing to the persecution of another person, I don’t feel a vote is really deserved at the minute."

But he replied in a now deleted comment: "I'm sorry you have difficulty in understanding who was persecuted."

Speaking to the MailOnline, the insider said: "It was unjust that Phillip was not only above him in the hierarchy, but paid so much more than him.
