The popular morning program has faced controversy in recent weeks, with the departure of Phillip Schofield amidst rumors of a strained relationship with co-host Holly Willoughby.
Following Schofield’s resignation and his subsequent confession of an affair, Willoughby returned to the show expressing her feelings of being “shaken, troubled, let down,” but chose not to address the allegations of “toxicity” on set.
Amidst the ongoing drama, Hatfield, who is known for providing money-making advice on This Morning, received a call from ITV bosses that left him feeling uneasy.
Speaking to the Daily Star, Hatfield shared: “I got in my car afterwards to come back home, and I’d taken a couple of bottles of water for the journey back. On my way, I received a phone call from a number I didn’t recognize. It turned out to be one of the editors from This Morning asking me where I was.”
Thinking he was in trouble for taking the water bottles, Hatfield was relieved to learn that the producers actually wanted to discuss the possibility of him making more appearances on the show.
Despite the recent controversies surrounding This Morning, Hatfield expressed his gratitude for being welcomed onto the show, saying, “It’s lovely to be a member.”
This Morning airs weekdays from 10am on ITV1.
