Phillip Schofield unfollows Holly Willoughby ahead of her first NTAs without him

Phillip Schofield has unfollowed his former best friend and This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby.

The former ITV host took himself off Holly's follower list on Instagram ahead of the NTAs later tonight.

It will be Holly's first awards show without Phillip, after he left both the show and ITV altogether in May.

As a result, the unfollowing seemingly confirms that all ties have been cut between the two former pals.

However, Schofield continues to follow Holly's sister Kelly, whilst Willoughby still follows Phil on the social media platform.

Holly is set to join the star-studded line-up at the NTAs, set to be held later on Tuesday evening (September 5).

The blonde bombshell, 42, is giving her moral support to co-host Alison Hammond, who received a nod for Best Presenter.

As well as this, This Morning itself is up for a gong as the Best Daytime show, going up against other shows including The Chase and Loose Women.

But despite having presented the show herself for over a decade, Holly has been snubbed in the Best Presenter category for the last two years.

It comes just days after Willoughby returned to our screens on the ITV titan after an extended summer break.

Holly chose to take extra time off from the show in the wake of the scandal that engulfed the show and co-host Phillip.

The pair's relationship was already rocky after Phil's brother had been jailed for child sexual assault offences.

But the former duo's friendship was officially severed after he left the ITV show in May.

It later emerged after Phil opted to leave the programme that he had an affair with a much-younger colleague whilst he was married to his ex-wife Steph.

In interviews conducted after the scandal went public, Schofield apologised for his actions, but defended himself – adding the affair was "unwise but not illegal".

Holly is currently co-operating with an independent internal inquiry set up by ITV into the scandal.

Previously, Phillip and Holly had more success at the NTAs, presenting the morning show the day after the ceremony in the clothes they wore to the event.

After winning Best Daytime Show in 2016, the pair looked worse for wear as the show went live on-air.

They later explained that they had no been home since the end of the awards show.
