Phillip Scholfield and Holly Willoughby have had a combined 33 years of presenting the hit ITV daybreak show This Morning, to an average of 1 million viewers per day.
They signed off for a Christmas break on 17th December and did not appear as many fans expected on Tuesday, January 4th, with Alison Hammond and Dermot O'Leary taking the helm. Having appeared since to the regular spot there has been some controversy over the handling of the interview with Strictly winner Rose Ayling-Ellis
Neither Phillip or Holly have been on air since December 17th, and didn't return on 4th January. The Xmas show was pre-recorded and speculations are building as to either will leave the show in 2022, with bookies offering 6/1 on one of the other departing.

The affable pair with a strong of on-screen live TV bloopers which are pretty hilarious it has to be said, would seem to be pretty solid in their respective positions on the show, but it has not stopped betting sites pricing up the possibility of either one of the pair vacating the positions they currently hold on the show, especially with strong rumours of the BBC Chasing Schofield to return.
With a 6/1 quote for either to leave equating to just under 15% in probability terms, it remains an outside chance but possible all the same.
Phillip Schofield alleged £750,000 a year contract was believed to be ending in 2021, and there has been little news of any renewal at this stage although plenty of rumour of a potential multi-million pound incentive from the BBC for a series of shows should a switch take place.
Holly Willoughby has been reported as signing a contract with ITV through to 2023, so depending on the Schofield contract, she looks the least likely to vacate this show.
