Phillip Schofield reignites Eamonn Holmes feud by spelling his name wrong in new book


TELLY star Phillip Schofield has fuelled his rift with fellow presenter Eamonn Holmes by spelling his name wrong in his autobiography.

Every reference to the veteran host in Life Is What You Make It, is spelt with one “N” rather than two.

An insider reckoned: “Eamonn, with two n’s, is raging. How did no one pick up on this in 400 pages?

“If it’s a joke Eamonn certainly wasn’t in on it and the error has ruffled feathers, yet again.”

The embarrassing slip happens four times in the book, published by Michael Joseph.

Relations between the ITV stars soured when Eamonn’s wife Ruth Langsford, 60, made an official complaint against Schofield, 58, last year.

Ruth is said to have been angry after Phil cut her off live on air during a preview of Loose Women on an episode of This Morning.

And in January there was reported to be tensions backstage at the National Television Awards.

But Eamonn, 60, Ruth and Phillip seemed to have made up when he came out as gay live on the show in February.

They hugged on screen and Schofield praised them in a tweet.

He said at the time that Eamonn and Ruth were both “utterly magnificent”.

A source close to Phillip, with two l’s, said: “It’s a genuine typo — Phil didn’t have a clue.

“He’ll be mortified to think he might have upset Eamonn.”
