Holly Willoughby breaks social media silence as Phillip Schofield quits ITV

Holly Willoughby has broken her social media hiatus after days of staying off platforms amid the Phillip Schofield scandal.
The TV presenter made a return to Instagram just moments before Schofield admitted to having an affair with a younger colleague at ITV and was dropped by his agent.
But Holly, 42, failed to acknowledge the continuing drama, reports the Mirror.
Holly posted a photo to her Wylde Moon Instagram account, which showed her holding a plate to show off the kedgeree she had made.
The caption read: "Fancy joining Holly and trying @Clodagh_McKenna's Kedegree?
"Holly says 'It's simple to make and a complete crowd pleaser whether you're having it for brunch, lunch or dinner! It may have been the first time I've made a Kedgeree but it definitely won't be the last!' Tap the link in our bio for the full recipe."
Schofield quit This Morning last week after 21 years following rumours of a feud between himself and Holly. But on Friday evening he sensationally quit ITV - meaning he will no longer host the British Soap Awards or Dancing on Ice after he admitted to an affair with a younger male ITV colleague.
In a bombshell statement, Phillip admitted the affair but refused to name his former colleague, with whom he had a relationship.
He said: "I did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning. Contrary to speculation, whilst I met the man when he was a teenager and was asked to help him to get into television, it was only after he started to work on the show that it became more than just a friendship. That relationship was unwise, but not illegal. It is now over."
After admitting to lying about the affair, Phillip has quit ITV with immediate affect and been dropped by his talent agent
