This Morning: 'Phillip Schofield made me want to cry and be sick'

TV personality Jodie Marsh said she "hated" going on This Morning

TV personality Jodie Marsh has accused Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby of making her "want to cry".

Ms Marsh was a guest on the ITV show in 2016 to talk about her decision to freeze her eggs as a single woman who hoped to have children in the future.

Speaking to TalkTV's Mike Graham, Ms Marsh accused Schofield of "belittling" the interview in a "really crude" manner.

"It's a very serious and emotional topic," she said. "Phil spent the whole interview grilling me about my exes and sex.

"He wanted to talk about all the different sex I'd had, and how many people I'd slept with. All sorts of nasty stuff about sex. It was just vile. I came off literally wanting to cry and be sick".

Ms Marsh accused Schofield and his co-presenter Holly Willoughby of being "vile and rude" and only nice to people who "can do something for them."

"There is no niceness whatsoever off camera", she said. "If you do happen to pass them in the hallway they won't even say hello to you. They treat you like you are nothing."

Ms Marsh recounted being "completely blanked" by Ms Willoughby when bumping into her on a holiday in Barbados, despite having met the TV presenter several times.

"Unless you can further their careers, they are not interested in even talking to you", she said.

She said she "hated" going on the programme, and that the brief guests were given before the interviews were often entirely different to what the presenters would end up asking them about.

Ms Marsh claimed "everybody at ITV knew" about Schofield's affair with a 19-year-old ITV employee.

ITV has instructed a barrister to carry out an external review of the facts following Schofield’s departure from This Morning following admissions of an "unwise but not illegal" affair with a younger colleague.
