Phillip Schofield regrets ‘terrible’ row with Noel Edmonds on This Morning – but refuses to back down in argument

 PHILLIP Schofield has admitted he regrets his “terrible” row with Noel Edmonds on This Morning – but still refuses to back down.

The two telly heavyweights clashed in 2016 when Noel was invited onto the show to discuss his belief that “negative energy” and “stress” caused his prostate cancer diagnosis – and a £2.3k sound wave machine helped him recover.

The debate about positive energy spiralled into a showdown between Noel, Phil, and Dr Raj – with the Deal Or No Deal host accusing the ITV programme of “stitching him up”.

Noel later sniped: “Phil, if you are unlucky enough to be seriously ill, I promise I won’t be so callous and I will show you respect, sympathy and compassion”, before labelling him and his co-host Holly Willoughby “aggressive, disrespectful, and dishonest”.

Six months later, the pair clashed again in a nasty Twitter spat.

Reflecting on the incident in his new autobiography Life’s What You Make It, Phil said: “I always cited him as my TV inspiration.

“Sadly, many years later, he and I would strongly disagree over an interview on This Morning when he suggested that ‘negative energy’ could cause cancer.”

Refusing to back down on his stance, the 58-year-old star added: “I still take a different point of view to Noel, but I think it’s a terrible shame we fell out over it.”

Noel had tweeted Phil findings from Cambridge’s Institute and Harvard University that proved “negative people are more vulnerable to serious illness and premature death”.

Referencing the awkward interview, Phil hit back at the time: “But were they incredibly insensitive and tactless in their delivery of said research?”

Noel seethed: “You corrupted the truth and made a fool of yourself. Your ego is larger than your intellect.”

The public run-in continued as his rival replied: “Must be awful to brood for so long! Are you being negative?” followed by a cheeky wink emoji.

Determined to have the last word, Noel hit back: “Point proved. I rest my case.”

He also addressed the dispute when he was evicted from I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2018, telling hosts Ant and Dec: “We had a spat on This Morning.

“I would love to go on This Morning again and properly talk about the subject of the human body energy system.

“I never said electro-pulse therapy cured my cancer. I never said that. We got into one of those silly production squabbles.”
