Phillip Schofield snapped at Meghan Markle’s friend Janina Gavankar during their interview about the tell-all Oprah Winfrey special.
The 58 year old presenter, who recently made a cheeky dig at Piers Morgan’s walk-off Good Morning Britain, was joined by the Arrow and True Blood actress to discuss the claims made by her pal Meghan, 39, and her 36 year old husband Prince Harry.
As the TV presenters questioned the star on her opinions and insider knowledge about the couple, Phillip and his 40 year old co-host Holly Willoughby couldn’t help but notice she was being “guarded” with her responses.
Janina told them: “I don’t speak for them. I speak for myself,” at one point during the morning show before Phillip questioned her why she came on the programme.
He said: “No, no, but I’m not entirely sure what it is that you’re saying. Because we watched that two hour documentary, which was incredibly important and very revealing.
“And opened up some incredibly important issues for us as a nation, for the monarchy for the institution, for us to look at ourselves, for them to look at themselves and think, ‘Okay, where did we possibly go wrong here? How can we put this right?'”
The TV personality, who was recently tipped to replace Bradley Walsh on The Chase as a new ITV spin off was announced, continued: “I don’t know what your role is in coming in today.
“I would expect any friend of mine to do exactly what you’re doing. So if you were going to come on the telly and be unbelievably guarded and practically say nothing. So what is your role today?”
Giggling, Janina replied: “Well it’s so funny you say that because I’m kind of surprised by your questions.
“I can tell you this, I am very excited that this is really a new era. Things are different. They can tell the truth, we can tell the truth.”
Viewers appeared to be left in agreement with Phillip as they took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the show’s guest.
One person wrote: “This interview is rapidly coming across as Janina being someone who was in a room with Meghan once at a party #ThisMorning”.
Another said: “Janina gave you all dust #ThisMorning,” followed by three rolling on the floor laughing emojis.
A third chimed: “Janina, the most pointless, most passive aggressive guest in a loooong time. #ThisMorning”.
While a fourth added: “I feel sorry for Holly and Phil. It’s like trying to get blood from a stone,” alongside a worried face emoji.
