This Morning host Phillip Schofield, 58, has taken a cheeky dig at Piers Morgan, 55, as it was announced that This Morning had won a TV Choice award. The ITV daytime show managed to beat its rival Good Morning Britain to be crowned Best Daytime Show.
Phillip’s This Morning co-star Alison Hammond shared the exciting news with viewers today.
The presenter celebrated with blue and yellow confetti to mark the achievement alongside Phillip and Holly Willoughby.
Alison said: “This Morning has won a TV Choice Award for Best Daytime TV show everyone. It’s in the oven.
“Because of Covid, there’s no award show or anything. This is the fifth one we’ve won now. We’ve beat GMB, Piers Morgan, Loose Women, The Chase.”
