All those three stories are sourcing the Daily Star as the source of this story
I can now see why whataday didn’t mention that in his post.
That's not the reason I didn't include a link and I resent the implication that I've tried to mislead when I clearly signposted it as something that's been reported rather than solid fact.
But as far as this story is concerned the way it's written suggests it's true. They quote ITV saying they don't comment on contracts and then quote an insider saying they've been given "extra staff resources" in order to make up for the extra half hour. That smacks of the ITV spokesperson giving an official answer then speaking off record.
Even if not true it is yet another sign of the tabloids turning on Holly and Phillip and therefore worth mentioning.
