Prior to the party, it was revealed that Holly’s erstwhile closest friend Schofield had unfollowed her on Instagram months after his abrupt departure from This Morning in May.
After admitting to lying about his connection with a younger colleague, the former ITV golden boy resigned This Morning and abandoned his responsibilities to the broadcaster.
He then admitted his ‘TV career’ was over but This Morning still hasn’t recovered and was booed during the ceremony.
Walking the red carpet before all the action kicked off, Holly was confronted by TalkTV’s Oliver Whitfield-Miočić, who asked: ‘Holly, are there still bullying allegations at This Morning?’
As she continued to walk away, instead choosing to chat to fans, he persisted: ‘Holly, are you missing Phil being here?’
As he was asked to stay away, he complained: ‘These are valid questions!’
Holly and Phil were National Television Awards royalty, especially after showing up to This Morning the next day in their last night’s costumes, soiled and tipsy.
The programme had won the award for Best Daytime for 12 years in a row until it was defeated by The Repair Shop last night.
Holly didn’t appear phased as she ate a double cheeseburger on the way home and congratulated Jay Blades on his accomplishment.
Holly revealed to other reporters last night that it’s been a “difficult year.”
If I am really honest, it has been up and down,’ she said.
‘It has been a difficult year for everybody but what’s lovely is you find that people rally around you and the goodwill is there.
‘People want things to move on. It feels different.’
This Morning airs weekdays at 10am on ITV.
