Holly Willoughby has nothing to hide as she speaks to Phillip inquiry

Holly Willoughby has reportedly spoken to the KC leading the independent inquiry into the Phillip Schofield scandal.

It's said the 42-year-old ITV star has "fully complied and cooperated with everything that has been asked of her by the KC" and according to close pals, she has "nothing to hide".

The highly-anticipated review which is expected to be completed in September will be led by Jane Mulcahy KC.

Phillip, 61, left ITV in May this year after he confessed to having a relationship with a former younger male colleague.

A source told Daily Mirror: "Holly was more than happy to do what was asked of her, and explain her position, and what she knew, and what she didn’t."

This Morning host Holly, who worked closely alongside Phillip, is one of many people working on the show who have helped Mulcahy with the upcoming inquiries.

In addition to this, it's said senior ITV execs including boss Kevin Lygo have also been spoken to.

Sharing further insight at the Edinburgh TV Festival, ITV's managing director Lygo said: "She (Mulcahy) has been talking to everybody involved, they take your phone and look at every single text you've ever sent, email, WhatsApp.

"So, everything is available, lots of interviews, talking to everybody and I hope as soon as possible, but probably in September, she will make that public."

TV execs have previously insisted that both Schofield and his younger lover "repeatedly denied" allegations that they were involved in a relationship until the former This Morning presenter parted ways from ITV and formally apologised.

Phillip spoke to the BBC in June where he apologised for his conduct, while also stating that an investigation should have been done "properly" in 2020.

He said: "I have to talk about television in the past tense, which breaks my heart… I have lost everything.

"What am I going to do with my days? I see nothing ahead of me but blackness, and sadness, and regret, and remorse, and guilt. I did something very wrong, and then I lied about it consistently," he shared.

The former presenter also agreed that ITV bosses should have completed "a proper and more thorough investigation" in 2020 and said he hoped the upcoming external review announced by Dame Carolyn McCall would be "thorough".

Daily Star has contacted ITV for comment.
