This Morning star bizarrely now claims she didn’t say she wanted Amanda Holden sacked from BGT after Phillip Schofield feud

THIS Morning star Sophie Prescott bizarrely now claims she didn’t say she wanted Amanda Holden sacked from BGT after her feud with Phillip Schofield feud.

Yesterday, the craft segment host leapt to Schofe's defence and made shocking claims about Amanda – despite only working with her once.

But Sophie has now taken to social media to insist she never said anything negative about Amanda.

She wrote on her Instagram Stories: "You may have seen some words in the press from me today and it's not true.

"I didn't speak those words, so please do not believe them."

Crafter Sophie – famous for her love of making pom poms – appeared on This Morning alongside Amanda last October for a Halloween segment.

Her claims come after The Sun on Sunday revealed Amanda raised concerns to a top ITV boss after she was blocked from a job as Phil's co-host on This Morning while Holly Willoughby was in Australia covering for Ant McPartlin on I'm A Celeb! last year.

"Amanda was all 'me, me, me'," she told the Daily Mirror.

"I put on a brave happy face doing the show but Amanda was very off-putting during my live appearance, kept asking questions, kept interfering and I felt she was a very controlling person.

"You'd think she owned the show the way she carried on and I never liked her from that moment on."

Craft Queen Sophie – who has appeared on the show 24 times – branded Amanda "unprofessional" and added: "Whatever beef she has with Philip should be dealt with behind close doors."

Sophie continued: "Who does Amanda think she is, marching into Kevin Lygo's office demanding answers on what she alleges that is supposed to have happened?

"Amanda should be 'yellow-carded' and told to shut up or face getting the sack from Britain's Got Talent."

Meanwhile, she had nothing but praise for Schofe and said: "Philip has always offered me a warm welcome, he's a true gentleman who is very professional and genuinely cares about the people he works with on This Morning.

"As far as I'm concerned, the picture she is painting of Philip of being ruthless and unkind is simply not true in my opinion."
