Holly Willoughby "Has Less Spark With Phillip Schofield Than Declan Donnelly", Says Expert Who Rates TV Duos

Date October 25, 2019 11:23

ITV’s This Morning is the longest-running daytime show on British television and it’s no secret that presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are a dynamic duo.

But for Holly, This Morning is not the only show where she gets to rock the boat, as she also co-hosts with Declan Donnelly on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! For viewers, Holly seems to dabble both gigs quite smoothly but according to a ratings expert, she is not a perfect match in both shows.

Holly Willoughby has "less spark" with Phillip than Declan

After watching Holly Willoughby on This Morning and I’m A Celebrity, body expert Judi James concluded that she has "less spark" with Philip Schofield than with Declan Donnelly.

Judi’s verdict is that Holly and Philip’s chemistry is that of "naughty schoolkids" but with Declan, there was more "spark." She explains that Philip and Holly "fake flirt" incredibly well for sofa chemistry but there’s no genuine attraction.

Even when Holly rushes to cling to Phil for protection from a huge spider or animal, her hands don’t seem to make contact. Their dynamism is rather hands-off and respectful.

However, with Holly and Dec, there is a high level of chemistry that often led to “spontaneously tactile behavior.”

Unlike with Phil, Holly is more open to close contact with Dec and even when in the jungle, they easily mirror each other’s facial expressions.

With Dec, Holly is more relaxed, suggesting a “friend-based ownership and protection” dynamic.

In real life, the 3 show hosts spend time together

In August, Holly, Philip, and Declan reunited as they enjoyed a relaxing holiday in Portugal. Phil, who often spends his summer holidays in Portugal with Holly prepared a delicious dinner for the two hosts and their spouses.

Which on-screen duo do you think is better? Holly with Phil or Holly with Dec or Holly with both?
