Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield will be hosting an unprecedented special live show of Downton Abbey at Highclere Castle, it has been announced.

The presenting duo will host This Morning at the location of the award-winning ITV series, and will be joined by a range of famous from the show.

Jim Carter, Michael Fox and new cast-member Tuppence Middleton, who play Mr Carson, Andrew Parker and Lucy Smith, will explore the castle and grounds with the pair.

Kelly Brook will host a gardening segment from the Hampshire castle on September 12 as an added bonus to the Downton special.

Speaking about the upcoming episode, Holly said: "It's no secret that I'm a huge fangirl of Downton Abbey, just like our This Morning viewers.

"So put your feet up, get cosy and join us for High Tea at Highclere."

Phillip added: "Just like Holly, I'm a Downton Abbey superfan so I can't wait to give This Morning viewers a proper nosey around Highclere Castle in all it's stunning glory.

"Surely Carson won't mind!"

The special episode will celebrate the release of the highly-anticipated Downton film, which is a continuation of the TV series and is due in cinemas on September 13.

The film follows a royal visit to Downton by King George V and Queen Mary.

Original stars Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery and Dame Maggie Smith are all returning.

This Morning editor Martin Frizell said: "The Downton Abbey film is one of the biggest British cinematic releases of the year and so it's only fitting that one of Britain's biggest daytime shows is to broadcast live from the set this September.

"Join us both upstairs and downstairs for a truly memorable This Morning special. We can't wait."

As we all know, Love Island doesn't air on Saturdays. We never really questioned why this happens, except that maybe the audience would be out living their lives on Saturday nights instead of staying in?

I mean, we'd still be game for watching it of course. Any day of the week.

However, it turns out the Islanders actually have a day off on Saturdays, without microphones. None of them are allowed to speak about the show at all, it's all about their home life so that nothing new happens off-screen. 

The intensities of the Majorcan villa are probably a lot to handle 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Islanders are handed a break from relaxing in order to relax, basically…? 

Former contestant Kem Cetinay revealed what happens during the Saturday break while appearing on This Morning. 

He told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield that the show's producers take them out of the villa/compound to the beach, which is fairly gas. It's like they're in summer camp.

He said, "They get one day off a week. What happens is it gives them a day to clean the villa and you take your mics off and normally we go to the beach and we just chill out.

"Not a lot of people know this. What happens is when you take your mics off, you’re not allowed to talk about anything to do with the show. You’ve got to talk about home life," Kem continued.

"You’re being watched by the producers because they don’t want you to talk about what’s going on." Phillip Schofield was absolutely shooketh at this revelation.

Kem also mentioned that there are strict rules about what the islanders can discuss during their day off, which is pretty weird.

"You can all sit and chat but they are quite careful about what you talk about because they want to keep it so everyone at home can see and get it on video," he explained. "It’s more a day off from all the intense games, all the intense dates, deciding who you like and don’t like."

Ex-Islander Chris Williamson previously said on his podcast: "Once a week we were allowed to leave the villa and weren’t filmed so none of the viewers would ever know.

"There was a day every week when footage wasn’t needed, which was liberating as you could talk about anything." It sounds a bit too like a cult, doesn't it?

Well ladies, it's actually happened.

After weeks spent wondering if the X Factor team had lost their minds, Honey G has finally said goodbye to the UK show after weeks of non-stop controversy.

But if the aspiring rapper thought the speculation into her background might die down now that she's been eliminated, she was sorely mistaken as she discovered after taking a seat on the This Morning sofa earlier today.

Cutting straight to the chase, Phillip Schofield asked the former X Factor contestant if her entire act had been an elaborate hoax.

Suggesting she may actually be playing a character a lá Leigh Francis, Phillip asked: "Is it an act? Are you like… Keith Lemon?"

Unsurprisingly, Honey G stressed her authenticity, responding: "No! You know, I'm not fake, This isn't an act, you know."

"Obviously I've grown up, you know, on the underground scene, in the music scene. I've been a musician the whole of my life."

"I'm known to BBC Radio One Extra which is the UK's biggest black music station. I've been involved in the station since it was founded."

"My mum's a classical pianist, that's where I get my, you know, music from, she's also known to the BBC," she went on to stress.

"So, people saying, you know, 'this is an act' to someone like me. I've got a degree in music. I've been a musician the whole of my life."

Acknowledging her distinct act, she added: "I think I might have picked up street from being in the underground music scene and it's become part of my personality."

Yeah guys, it's just her personality…


With reports suggesting Millie Mackintosh had destroyed her wedding dress in order to create a Halloween costume, it's no surprise Phillip Schofield broached the topic with Millie's ex, Professor Green, when he appeared on This Morning earlier today.

Grabbing a slot on the show to promote his latest single, the Just Be Good To Green singer, who split with Millie in February of this year, was forced to comment on his former wife's supposed antics.

And, in fairness to him, he played an absolute blinder.

"Come on mate, you've got to have a sense of humour," he told Phillip. "Divorce is horrible but if you've been married to a person and you can't look back with kindness you've made a mistake."

Honing in on the rapper's new track, Phillip suggested he may be playing Millie at her own game by penning a 'revenge' song – a suggestion that didn't sit well with the 32-year-old star.

"It's not a revenge break up song, revenge for what? It's mad to me, revenge for what?" he asked the host in response to the idea.

Yeah Phillip, revenge for what?!

We're with you on this one, Green.


It sounds like Phillip Schofield is just like the rest of us when it comes to his fascination with Cheryl Cole's reported pregnancy.

And after the former Girls Aloud singer appeared on The One Show this week, Phillip was unable to hide his confusion over the presenters' decision not to broach the topic with the Geordie star.

"They can’t have failed to have realised that that was a very important question to ask," he said while discussing Cheryl's appearance on the show.

‘They’re very good on that show, so I can only think that the only reason they didn’t ask was because they were told not to."

Reading between the lines, Phillip came to the conclusion that Cheryl had told the show's team that that particular line of questioning was off limits.

"We know from our job here that every so often someone comes in – and I’m not saying that’s the case here – but someone comes in and says, “Under no circumstances are you to ask me about whatever," he explained to viewers.

"So normally we don’t. Sometimes we’re a bit naughty, but normally we don’t. So it appears, although I don’t know, that she may have said, “Don’t talk to me about it”. In which case – why?" Phillip wondered.

Sounding as perplexed as the rest of us, the 54-year-old This Morning host wondered if Cheryl was secretly enjoying the speculation.

"I’m not sure I understand the intricacies behind this one,’ he admitted. ‘If she is pregnant – fantastic. If she’s not, maybe she’s just enjoying all the fun."

Hmmm, we're starting to think he may be on to something.


This Morning viewers were left in a state of confusion yesterday when the show’s host Holly Willoughby told a guest that she could relate to her dramatic story of cheating.

The anonymous mother told Holly and her co-presenter Phillip Schofield how her husband of ten years had been cheating on her with another man and that she only realised his infidelity through hearing the stories of people like her husband through her work with the Samaritans.

She explained to the hosts: “I believe he was being blackmailed, his behaviour became more and more erratic.”

“I was a Samaritan at the time and was talking to a number of people in his position and the more they were telling me the more I suddenly realised this was happening in my own home.”

Rather unexpectedly 35-year-old Holly responded to this statement by saying: “Sounds like my life.”

While Philip did glance at his colleague with a concerned expression, Holly continued on flawlessly with her next question.

Naturally viewers picked up on the strange nature of the exchange and took to social media to discuss the comment.

One Facebook user wrote: “Did she say ‘sounds like my life’!?  Hopefully she’s talking about the past not the present.”  While another said: “No man in their right mind would cheat on her.  They would be mad.”

According to The Sun, a source close to the presenter claimed there was no great secret behind Holly’s statement as she was just “engaging with her guest and empathising just like she always does”.


Even if you think Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston are totally set to last and live happily ever after, it's hard to deny that their relationship is definitely one of the showier in the industry.

From allowing paps to get shots of their long walks on the beach to wearing items of clothing which declare their love for one another, the TayTo romance is playing out for all to see, and they seem to love it.

And while media outlets around the world are busy speculating about the pair, it seems the answer to the 'Is it real or not?' question lies with none other than…Philip Schofield.

That's right ladies, Schof apparently has the inside scoop on the romance, and he said as much during a This Morning segment devoted to the pair.

With Rylan Clarke pouring scorn on their countless PDAs and the speed with which their relationship is developing, good ol' Phil decided to add his tuppence in.

"I was talking to someone yesterday who knows him very well and said he wouldn’t do the T-shirt thing – it’s not in his nature to that," Phil revealed.

"She's leading everyone on," he added. "She's leading everyone on. I'm pretty sure. I'll stick my neck out here"

That's it! If Phil says Tom wouldn't wear a T-shirt dedicated to his girlfriend, then who are we to question him?




Phillip Schofield may be a successful television presenter but his true claim to fame is that he appeared in an episode of the infamous US sitcom, Friends. 

Well, his voice appeared. 

Yep, while interviewing former Friends actor Matthew Perry on This Morning, Phillip revealed that his laugh can be audibly heard in the audience during a particular scene in the show. 

While the 53-year-old is very excited by this small part in Friends, Matthew was less than impressed. 

"I think we have to talk about how much free time you have," said the actor. 

Watch the hilarious clip below: 



We're all a bit confused and generally cannot keep up with the ins and outs of the relationship between Celebrity Big Brother housemates Stephanie Davis and Jeremy McConnell. 

From their supposed break up, make up and general flaunting of their affections on social media, one does not know what is happening from one minute to the next. 

As Jeremy releases a statement this evening reporting that the couple are officially on, it seems that we are not the only ones who have come to the end of their tether. 

While speaking about the couple. I'm a Celeb contestant and reality star Ferne McCann spoke about the frustrations of trying to keep up with the couple and host Phillip Schofield got pretty angry about it. 

"Urgh, God, you know what, I’m sick to death of these two…who cares?" 

Watch the clip below: 



They're a little bit famous for going all-out at the award shows, and this year was certainly no different.

Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby celebrated their NTA win last night in style, and after the awards show, continued the party with Ant and Dec. 

But they rocked up to work this morning wearing the same fancy dress as the night before – except now their outfits were stained and yellow.

"Should we be honest?" Holly asked Phillip, and then continued to say, "I haven't been home yet. We came straight here."

They even placed Pie-Face with Ant, who put mustard in the game, instead of cream. Ouch.

Now, we don't know if they're still buzzing from the booze or if they're really hungover, but their antics from last night sure did look fun.


Have you ever had the absolute misfortune of wondering what the term ‘gringe’ meant? The term became something of an internet trend earlier today when Holly Willoughby displayed hers on live television.

While it sound incredibly rude, it is actually not as shocking as one could be forgiven for thinking. It’s actually just a grown out fringe. The interesting new term came about during a segment of This Morning that was all about cutting your own fringe.

The idea seems to have come about after Kate Middleton appeared sporting a new hair style: a long fringe.

Naturally, the Kate Middleton effect was in full force and people everywhere decided they wanted their own. We highly doubt the Duchess of Cambridge refers to her new ‘do as a ‘gringe’, but that’s a different story entirely.

“Show us your gringe!” Holly’s co-host Phil declared, obviously not knowing what was going to result.

The internet was pretty appalled, and reacted accordingly because as it turns out, 'gringe' does indeed have another meaning and it is less than pleasant:

A few realised just how decidedly unglamorous the term was:

Despite that, we fear it seems to be something that is catching on:

We feel that after a quick Google of the term people may not be so inclined to be declaring their love of the 'gringe'. The Urban Dictionary puts it quite plainly. Perhaps this will put a stop to our habit of giving 'trends' unnecessary names in the future? We hope so.
