Everything seems to be changing right now for This Morning host Phillip Schofield .
The telly favourite's can-do-no-wrong image has taken a knock following Amanda Holden's claim he "cost" her a plum presenting role on the show – branding her "hard to manage."
Then on Sunday suggestions his 'toxic' reign fronting the programme has seen rows and off-air clashes, with him reportedly being 'unreasonable'.
So while all this was going on, the silver fox turned blue at a family BBQ as he put the rumours to one side.
The 57-year-old took drastic action – and claimed his mum made him do it.
The Dancing on Ice host yelled: "Oh….s**t!" as he finally got a glimpse of what he had done and asked, "Does it wash out? I'm on the telly on Monday!"
Schofield could do with the distraction following a difficult weekend.
The Sun on Sunday allege he rowed with a Dancing on Ice writer, which led to them quitting.
A former exec told the paper: “For years, Phillip has been the king of daytime TV, and seen as a bit of a God, utterly untouchable.
“But a few people have had noses put out of joint. Amanda, Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford, plus other key talent, have been especially vocal.
“Things are increasingly toxic when the cameras stop rolling, and a few ITV people are secretly delighted that things are starting to emerge.”
An ITV spokesperson said: "Presenter line ups on This Morning change regularly and final decisions on these line ups are made by producers and not the presenters."
"Phillip Schofield is a much loved broadcaster and part of the ITV family. He is a consummate professional and held in high regard at ITV."
Amada used her Heart FM show to have a dig at the experienced presenter earlier this month,
She told her listeners that the three things she wouldn’t like to find in her home were: "Spiders, flies and Phillip Schofield."
