3 July 2014 11:57 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Phillip Schofield jokingly stormed off the set of This Morning, after co-host Holly Willoughby claimed that he looked like former EastEnders actress Pam St Clement.

Willoughby was left to present a section of the show alone when Schofield mocked offence to her cheeky comments.

Schofield had previously revealed his defined cheekbones on the show earlier in the morning, prompting one viewer to add make-up to his face on a picture that they sent in.

"You look a bit like Pam St Clement," Willoughby exclaimed.

"Well you can do the rest yourself!" an open-mouthed Schofield said before walking out of the show's 'Hub'.

"Oh goodness me.... I'm in trouble!" Willoughby joked.

Willoughby is due to take maternity leave from the daytime show later this month.

Christine Bleakley and Emma Willis have both been rumoured to stand in for her when a new series of the show begins in September. »

Soaps are in danger, but nothing reflects the country quite like them

3 July 2014 7:19 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Russell T Davies has warned that soaps might not be around 10 years from now and that would be a terrible shame

An EastEnders actor appeared on Saturday Kitchen a couple of years ago. During her interview segment the part of the show where James Martin switches on a blender to drown out the guest whenever they talk because he can't bear the thought of the show not being entirely about him she spoke in awestruck terms about meeting a former cast member who'd been on the show 20 years ago. People actually watched EastEnders then, she said. Not like now.

She had a point. In 1986, one episode of EastEnders was watched by 31 million people. An episode that aired in the middle of June this year, meanwhile, had an audience of just five million. It is the same across the board: all soaps are experiencing plummeting figures. The drop isn't sudden or »

Dan Osborne confesses that he is "in love" with Jacqueline Jossa on tonight's episode of The Only Way Is Essex.

Osborne announced last month that he had reunited with the actress, who plays Lauren Branning on EastEnders.

On tonight's instalment of Towie, Osborne is quizzed about his "new soap star girlfriend" by Elliot Wright, James Argent and Tom Pearce.

"Is she happy with you in the bedroom?" Pearce jokes. "Because we know Jasmin had a few complaints."

However, Osborne - who does admit he has "improved" in the bedroom - replies that he has "moved on" and says: "I don't want to hear about Jasmin."

When Pearce asks Osborne if he is in love, he replies: "Yeah, I would definitely say I was in love. And I don't believe in throwing that word around, but I am happier than I've ever been."

Still, he can't escape a bit of mockery from the other guys, »
