Kim Woodburn has called for Holly Willoughby to be fired from This Morning and accused her of lying in a tirade on GB News.

The 81-year-old celebrity cleaner was appearing on the network to discuss Willoughby's return to This Morning and her first appearance on the show since the Phillip Schofield scandal ignited.

Asked whether she believed Willoughby's opening statement about being lied to by Schofield, Woodburn replied: "Absolutely not, she's one little b****."

She continued: "Why did she have to mention that he told lies? It's been done and said, he's lost his job. Why is she rubbing it in? She should be fired."

Woodburn also reflected on her own time working with Willoughby on This Morning: "Look, I've worked with Holly, I've been on the sofa with them three or four times. I never liked the way she behaved and I never liked the way she opted out of everything – I couldn't stand it."

Woodburn has launched a number of attacks on This Morning and Schofield and Willoughby in recent weeks, calling for the show to be axed and that it had been "tainted" by Schofield's actions.

Schofield has denied doing anything "illegal" but stepped down from This Morning and his other roles at ITV after admitting to an affair with a much younger colleague he first met when he was 15.

Schofield has insisted the relationship did not turn sexual until five years later when the colleague was 20 or 21.

The former Dancing on Ice host has also denied accusations of "grooming" in reply to much social media criticism.
