Amanda Holden has furiously hit back at reports that she's "feuding" with This Morning host, Holly Willoughby, despite posting a video widely thought to 'mock' Holly just a few days ago.
Britain's Got Talent judge and Heart Radio host Amanda, 52, issued a statement on her Instagram page where she said that a "rift" between herself and Holly, 42, "simply does not exist".
She also said that reports of a "feud" between the two TV stars were "utter rubbish" as she lamented "women being pitted against each other".
Amanda's furious tirade came two days after she appeared to 'mock' Holly's emotional statement on Monday's This Morning, regarding disgraced star Phillip Schofield, where she said the now-infamous line: "Are you ok?"
A tearful Holly had asked the question to the viewers of This Morning at home, as she followed up with: "I hope so."
Her words have since been widely mocked by celebrities, the public and even an MP, and Amanda didn't miss an opportunity to make a joke – not once, but twice.
Sharing a video to her Instagram Story on Tuesday, Amanda donned a white jumpsuit that appeared rather similar to the white Reiss dress worn by Holly a day prior – considered by many as attempting to signal a fresh start for This Morning.
Speaking to the camera, Amanda quipped: "Hello, it is Tuesday. Are you okay?
"Today I'm wearing this gorgeous white jumpsuit. It is from Me & Em. It's been in my wardrobe for absolutely ages. I've been dying to wear it because the weather's got better."
Amanda took a second shot at Holly while on air for her Heart radio breakfast show that day.
As she and co-host Jamie Theakston joked about Amanda arriving hungover to work yesterday, she said: "I got home, got straight into bed with my dog and cat. I got up, cooked the tea and went back to bed again at 8.
"I did that thing where you wake up at 2 and you have to talk yourself back into going to sleep."
To which Jamie joked: "We're worried about your well-being." Amanda didn't miss the chance to joke about This Morning, as she replied: "I'm OK people, are you OK?" before cackling.
Speculation about Holly and Amanda's relationship comes after Amanda has long-voiced her disdain for Holly's former This Morning co-host and ex-best pal, Phillip Schofield.
In 2018, Amanda accused Phillip of ruining her chances of filling in for Holly on the show whilst she presented I'm A Celeb, with ITV changing to Rochelle Humes at the last minute.
This offer was later said to have been revoked after Phillip intervened and instead requested that Rochelle Humes join him on the sofa during Holly's absence, claiming that she would be easier to "manage" than Amanda.
