Holly Willoughby takes a walk in the park amid rumours of 'tension' between her and Phillip Schofield on This Morning | The Sun

HOLLY Willoughby today looked deep in thought as she took walk amid "tension" rumours between her and This Morning co-host Phillip Schofield.

Her stroll in the park comes as the usually bubbly presenter, 41, dropped a huge hint this week that all is not right between her and Phil, 60.



The TV star has had a tough few weeks, ever since her and Phillip were accused of queue jumping to see the Queen lying in state.

Since then, the pair have faced a huge backlash, which may have put a strain on their own relationship.

Looking casually chic, Holly was spotted wearing a fitted back coat, with matching top, and ski pants.

She tied her blonde hair back into a sleek ponytail, and completed the look with a pair of shades.

Holly was spotted deep in thought, sitting on bench in a local park near to her London home.

"It’s very clear that as Phil interjected, Holly was left irked and we immediately saw her manifest an emotion of mild anger and contempt."

Darren went on to explain the gestures Holly made that gave away her real feelings.

"The first gesture we see is a definite eye roll," said Darren.

"In any other circumstance, it's generally a sarcastic gesture, however, we then see the lips come together and those muscles engage.

"In doing so, Holly then displayed a micro-expression of anger, if only for a moment.

"We also saw the left hand side of her mouth move forwards, which suggests she was feeling contempt.

"These subtle signs reveal that Holly wasn’t happy with her co-star during that interaction and it suggests she felt he had been rude towards her."
