It was all everyone was talking about last week and now it's official, Philip Schofield has stepped down from This Morning after hosting it for over 20 years.

Rumours had been swirling for the last while that himself and his longtime co-host Holly Willoughby were feuding and well, their separate statements didn't do anything to clear up those rumours!

First came Philip's statement, posted to Instagram last Saturday afternoon.

Then came Holly's which people interpreted as a bit cold for his co-host that appeared to be his best friend for many years 👀

Well, this is awkward. Where do they go from here?

In a statement, ITV said members of the "This Morning family" will be running the ship in the meantime, with Dermot O'Leary and Alison Hammond tasked with presenting the first show after all the drama!
They also revealed Holly will be taking a 2 week break from the show, returning on the 5th of June.

So now that it seems that Holly's not going anywhere, everyone's talking about who should be her new co-host on the popular daytime show.

While Philip's been off, she's had a variety of guest presenters, and fans of the show enjoyed herself and Alison hosting the show together.

Outside members of the "This Morning family", who are the people tipped to take over Philip's job?

A lot of people are saying Rylan, and he seems like a great choice to us!
The X-Factor singer-turned presenter has experience guest hosting on This Morning so he'll slot in easily.

Gino D'Acampo's name has also been thrown into the hat. The Italian TV chef rose to fame on This Morning with his often hilarious cooking segments. After all, he is responsible for one of the most iconic This Morning moments of all time.

Some people seem to think Stacey Solomon has dropped hints that she'll be the one taking the job. She told Instagram followers "Just had one of the most exciting meetings of my life. I can't even tell you how excited I am to share this with you soon. My dream".

(Could be anything though couldn't it 😂 Still, you never know!)
