As Matthew Steeples appears in a second episode of ‘Schofield: Is There More To This Story?’, we ask: “Who’ll replace weird warbling wazzock Phillip Schofield on ITV1’s ‘This Morning’?”
Last night, on Shaun Attwood’s by the day sky rocketing in viewer numbers YouTube channel, Matthew Steeples returned to chat about the latest developments in the sordid saga of why the “silver soufflé” that is Phillip Schofield has gone from telly-box-treasure to tarnished-turfed-out-trash.
In a week when a February 2020 article from The Steeple Times – titled simply “The Phil & Matt Show” – went viral on our pages and became by far our most read article ever of our thousands of pages of published content since we began in May 2012, it seems that interest in Schofield and his sidekick turned nemesis Holly Willoughby has overtaken that of interest in ‘Wallmart Wallis’ (AKA the former Meghan Markle).
Now, as speculation runs rife about what will come next in this matter, we today highlight who might become the next permanent host (or hosts) on This Morning and also again suggest that ITV would actually do better to put out this somewhat tired show to pasture. They could, instead, dust down their broom cupboard and come up with an entirely new show.
This morning on Boyle Sports, the available betting odds were as follows:
Alison Hammond – 2/1.
Dermot O’Leary – 5/2.
Rylan Clark – 11/4.
Bradley Walsh – 9/2.
Vernon Kay – 5/1.
Stacey Solomon – 12/1.
Marvin Humes – 14/1.
Keith Lemon – 33/1.
Thomas Skinner – 33/1.
Ant & Dec – 40/1.
Alesha Dixon – 50/1.
Amanda Holden – 66/1.
Piers Morgan – 150/1.
Ryan Tubridy – 150/1.
Commenting in response, Steeples observed:
“Whilst I’ve never even heard of Humes, Skinner and Tubridy and Piers Morgan – who’d understandly never ditch the £30 million deal he’s done with Rupert Murdoch at Talk TV and The Sun – has already declared himself out, why aren’t others on this list?”
“The brilliantly bonkers Gyles Brandreth and the equally brilliantly bonkers Christine Hamilton – who herself once made a brilliantly bonkers speech at my very own 21st birthday party back in 2001 – have both sat on the This Morning sofa on many an occasion and there’s no inclusion of other stalwarts including the delights that are Ferne Britton and Matthew Wright either.”
“If the ‘show must go on’ in its present format, these are the kind of people who’d bring both fun and frolicks to our screens, but they’re also capable of serious debate also. ITV would do well to consider them.”
“In reality, whilst I’d prefer to see This Morning disappear from every morning henceforth, the likelihood of more of the same with the undoubtedly voluptuous and vivacious Holly Willoughby and A. N. Other is not a solution. It’s instead time for ‘Willoughbooby’ – as the booby blonde was amusingly once nicknamed by Keith Lemon – to head off to pastures new and it is time for a clean sweep at ITV1.”

Pictured Top – Toxic terror queue jumpers Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby are over as “telly treasures” (top left) but who should replace them? How about one-time regulars on the show such as the ex-MP Gyles Brandreth and British battleaxe Christine Hamilton or what about near frontrunner at the bookies Rylan Clark?

As a ticket package to a dinner with the Duchess of Sussex is laughably peddled for £795,000, Matthew Steeples reminds the much loathed ‘MeGain’s’ PR peddler Omid Scobie that “recollections may vary” as he heads to court to support Prince Harry.

As dopey, deranged and delusional Sarah, Duchess of York is hit with a £19 million lawsuit and is told to pay up, we again ask: “Did she ever repay the loans and other benefits she took from the known-to-her-to-be-a-paedophile Jeffrey Epstein?”
As author Kirby Sommers suggests that the then Meghan Markle likely spent time with Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein before she met Prince Harry, we again highlight the mucky, murkiness and mendacious manner of this alleged “yacht girl.”
Expose interview with Matthew Steeples by Shaun Attwood and Jennifer Hopkins about the former Meghan Markle watched over 73,000 times in 16 hours since it aired; Steeples condemns hapless Prince Harry and his meddling menace wife.
I don’t watch this mind numbing cack but hopefully they’ll get someone who doesn’t have a mucky private life.
It’s none of my business who might replace him but if there are other siblings in his family of origin, it’s worrying. What kind of person was their father? The question has to be asked. For two men to have found themselves embroiled in scandalous stories of this nature is unusual.
Hiya I think I’ve found a link between schofield Harris and savile that I’ve not heard linked in any of the you tube videos email me for details
Laughter is absolute joy 👏🏻 in this dark world.
I’ve been entertained by your info & wit on Shaun’s podcasts & now I’m here on your page 🥃 Hugs & blessings to you Matthew, protected both you & Shaun are as you are always in my prayers.
I’m so enjoying your commentary on Shaun Attwood, you & Lady C are the only two i have watched on there over the last year or so. Well, I have just watched Penny Bunny’s video on Simon Schofield & my jaw hasn’t managed to shut yet. Phillip met simon when Simon was 12, lots of photographs in her video. I’m very thankful i am merely a reader & that i am not the one having to dive down that rabbit hole.
Thank you for all your amazing work Matthew, you’re fantastic. I’m approaching pension age & I have a very strong women’s instinct & i have never been able to watch Phillip Schofield, my inner alarm is deafening when i catch him on tv, unfortunetly the same alarm goes off when i see Ant from Ant & Dec. I fear that ITV may be mirroring the days of the old BBC but i guess only time will tell, if the old egg timer finally bursts & out pour the old tired grains of sand.
(Big shout out to the much loved & never forgotten Yankee Wally if she reads this. We miss you Cariad & hope all is well 🍅🍅🍅)
