However, an ITV spokesperson has strongly refuted the 'disappointing allegations, saying they are simply 'malicious gossip'. 

The denial comes after a report stated the situation behind the scenes at This Morning had become 'toxic' in recent months, with employees too scared to speak out publicly for fear of backlash.

Amanda first worked with Phillip when she stepped into Holly's shoes when the This Morning star took a year off the show to have her third baby four years ago in October 2014.

Dancing on Ice Christmas Special: everything you need to know

  Dancing on Ice Christmas Special: everything you need to know Everything you need to know about Dancing on Ice Christmas Special 2019: when it starts and who will be performing

THE hit daytime show has been cancelled TODAY (October 9, 2019). Unfortunately, viewers hoping to watch their favourite presenters will have to wait. BAD news for This Morning fans, the show WON'T be on today - which means you won't be getting your regular dose of Holly Willoughby and Phil

Dancing On Ice champ James Jordan rallied around the host, 57, as he insisted the TV favourite was an 'absolute pleasure to work with' during their time on the ITV competition series earlier this year. 

Echoing his comments, skater Matt Evers, 43, added: '12 series... that 12 years on and off screen. Either on the ice or This Morning and...

'Never... not once have I seen nor heard a bad thing from you. Your spirit and professionalism has always been at the highest level. #keepthatchinup', he added.

Perfumer Jo Malone, 55, also praised the award-winning host for maintaining his 'kind' nature at work.

Always an absolute gentleman anytime I worked on This Morning. Ignore the hate, be true to yourself and keep on entertaining the masses', TV presenter James Green also tweeted.

Phillip also responded to the reported, posting to Twitter on Sunday: 'The end of another really sad weekend. When you try for 35 years to be the easiest, most fun person to work with and you read such hurtful and wildly untrue stories from nameless "sources".

'Obviously I’ll take it on the chin. I just hope you know me better' [sic], the devastated star added.

MailOnline has gone to representatives for all parties for comment. Holly's representatives declined to comment.

Meanwhile, it was reported this summer that Phillip had reignited his feud with ex co-host Fern Britton months before his current spat with Amanda.

The dispute occurred last October when Fern, 61, who left the show eight years ago, made it clear she was upset she hasn't been invited to a special BAFTA ceremony for the show.

As the air turned frosty during the video link, fans soon swarmed Twitter to point out 'the shade' shortly before Phillip took to the microblogging site to insist she was in fact invited but declined the offer due to work commitments in Scotland.

The row was resolved after Fern's representatives revealed she had been invited to the BAFTA's, but they declined on her behalf.

Fern was recruited as a guest presenter on the show in 1993 although nabbed the role of full-time host on the Friday edition alongside John Leslie, who was later replaced by Phil, who still fronts the show with Holly Willoughby.

It was claimed at the time her departure was due to the fact she was 'sick of living in Phil's shadow' while he was paid 'three times her salary', before she admitted in a 2013 interview that 'we’re not in touch now'.

Things sparked up once more, as she claimed she had not been invited to the special BAFTA ceremony held in honour of the show.

Speaking on the episode, she said: 'Congratulations, on the BAFTA I would have loved to have been there but I didn't get an invite. I wasn't on Monday night.'

Later in the day however, Phillip responded, writing: 'Odd really, because she was invited and declined #memoryloss we’d have loved her to be there. A vital and much loved part of the show'.
