Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield are reportedly set to earn £150,000 each for hosting an extra half hour of This Morning.
This Morning’s airtime is being extended by thirty minutes from January 2020, as ITV have revamped the station’s schedule following the cancellation of The Jeremy Kyle Show.
The Daily Mirror has reported that bosses have allocated an extra £300,000 to pay the show’s popular co-hosts, for their extra thirty minutes work.
Holly and Phil are already paid a massive £600,000 a year for hosting This Morning, and now they’re set to make £750k each.
Holly’s pay was famously increased by £200k back in 2017, after Phil’s significantly larger salary hit headlines.
In the new year, Good Morning Britain will also start half an hour later at 6:30am, and Lorraine has been pushed to a start time of 9am.
