Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are known as best of friends, and as well as being co-presenters of This Morning, they've often take annual trips abroad together with their families.
But it looks like the vacations could be no more, as the presenting duo are thought to have cancelled them, according to MailOnline, amid rumours of a feud between them.
Talk of a rift between the pair emerged this week, with Phillip, 61, going on to release a statement, which is said to have left Holly, 42, "blindsided" as she had no idea he was going to do so.
Phil told The Sun: "The last few weeks haven't been easy for either of us."
He continued: "As I have said before, Holly is my rock. We're the best of friends – as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone. Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. And I've been there for her."
Phillip's shock statement came just hours after reports emerged which claimed the former pals are "barely speaking" off-camera at the moment and the pair have "become more distant".
Viewers even noticed the tension between them on a recent episode of This Morning, despite the pair attempting to put on a bubbly charade.
Holly and Phillip have worked together on This Morning since 2006, and they were known to share an extremely close bond.
So close in fact, that they went on holiday together every year with their partners and families, including Holly's husband, Dan Baldwin and their three children, Harry, 14, Belle, 12, and Chester, and Phil's ex-wife Stephanie.
Holly was a shoulder for Phillip to lean on when he came out as gay in 2020, as he emotionally opened up to her live on This Morning.
He even gave her a special mention in his official statement as he told the world of his sexuality, as he wrote: "My friends are the best, especially Holly, who has been so kind and wise – and who has hugged me as I sobbed on her shoulder.
"At ITV, I couldn’t hope to work with more wonderful, supportive teams."
But insiders have claimed that ITV bosses will not hesitate to act fast if they feel his on-screen chemistry with Holly has been ruined.
The Mirror has also claimed that the network was angry that Phil went public on the rift with his statement, which he didn't warn anyone about.
A source said: "Monday is very much D-day."
They continued: "This Morning's relationship with its viewers is built on trust, and they have to believe that Holly and Phil's friendship, and what they're watching, is real."
OK! has contacted Phil and Holly's representatives for comment.
