Speaking on her Heart radio breakfast show, Amanda explained that she text Phil in a desperate bid to clear the air.

The mother-of-two was hoping to go for a coffee with the This Morning host, only for him to ignore her text message.

Speaking to her radio co-host Jamie Theakston, Amanda said: “I’ve move on from it, Jamie, you need to move on from it.”

He replied: “You might have moved on but I just wanted to know, is there any more to the story?”

The TV favourite explained: “I did offer to meet him for a coffee months ago, he didn’t reply to my text.

“What can I say?”

Jamie pushed: “The olive branch has been extended.”

To which she confirmed: “Oh, yes.”

Jamie then asked if there was any chance of a reconciliation, comparing Amanda and Phil’s feud to Taylor Swift and Katy Perry’s.

The two popstars were seen making amends in Taylor’s new video, sharing a sweet embrace while dressed as a burger and fries.

He asked: “In a sort of Katy Perry/ Taylor Swift way, will there be a burger and fries moment for you guys?”

But Amanda didn’t seem open to the idea, telling him: “I don’t know, I’m a vegetarian, Jamie.”

The comments come after Phil took to his Twitter page to say that he’d had “another sad weekend” after The Sun On Sunday revealed details of his feud with Amanda.

He added that he had tried to be “the easiest, most fun person to work with” throughout his 35-year career – concluding that he will “take it on the chin”.

On Sunday, we revealed that Amanda raised her concerns to a top ITV boss after she was blocked from a job as Phil’s co-host while Holly Willoughby was in Australia filming I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!.

A former daytime TV executive told us: “Phillip actively campaigned for Rochelle Humes to get the job despite Amanda being more experienced — and having been told privately she’d got the gig.

However Phil went on to deny the allegations on Twitter and claimed the story was “untrue.”


This April, another female star went to bosses over Phillip’s “unreasonable actions” following an on-air clash.

We also revealed that Phil pitched for Ant McPartlin’s job on I’m A Celeb but was overlooked.

The former exec told The Sun on Sunday: “For years, Phillip has been the king of daytime TV, and seen as a bit of a God, utterly untouchable.

“Things are increasingly toxic when the cameras stop rolling, and a few ITV people are secretly delighted that things are starting to emerge.”
