Fern sensationally quit This Morning and admitted she was ‘not getting on’ with her co-host Schofield, as behind-the-scenes tensions were being reported on.

‘There was also a persistent rumour that I left because Phillip was being paid more than me and I always say to people, “Why would I leave a show to go to nothing if I was worried about money?”,’ Fern later said on the Ray D’Arcy Show in 2020.

She added: ‘Something happened and I thought, “That’s it really” and I walked away and resigned. I was treated pretty poorly, actually. And after a while I just thought, “Sod it”.’

It’s since been claimed that Fern will be gearing up to tell all about their fractured relationship once cameras start rolling inside the house.

‘She wants to show the public a different side to her — unscripted and unapologetic,’ a source told The Sun ahead of the launch.

‘She has a lot of stories to tell, and she won’t hold back when it comes to her relationships with people like Phil.

‘They don’t speak anymore so there are no bridges to burn as far as she is concerned.’

However when speaking to the Daily Mirror ahead of the show, Fern said her views on This Morning would be ‘very old’ and not terribly interesting’,

‘There are some things that I think as a collective almost nation there are things you can’t and wouldn’t want to hear or see or be talked about,’ she explained.

‘I haven’t been on that show for 15 years. I don’t know anything that’s been going on since then. And so it would be A, very old views. B, not terribly interesting, but I did love This Morning. I absolutely loved it.’

Celebrity Big Brother continues tonight at 9pm on ITV1.
