Last year it was reported that Phil and his This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby netted £150,000 for working an extra half an hour each day on This Morning from January.
Following the cancellation of The Jeremy Kyle Show, ITV revamped their schedule and This Morning’s airtime was extended by thirty minutes.
According to the Daily Mirror, insiders revealed an extra £300,000 had been allocated to pay Holly and Phillip for their extra thirty minutes of hosting.
The presenting duo were previously paid £600,000 a year for their roles on This Morning, after Holly’s pay was brought in line with Phillip’s in 2017.
Last month it was claimed the TV presenter saw his Fistral Production company’s funds rise by £807,413 in the previous year, according to figures seen by The Sun.
Phil’s Fistral Productions allegedly had a net worth of £2,544,296, broken down into £1,831,526 in cash, £1,247,758 in money owed to the firm, and £534,988 expenses.
After deducting the cost of his bills, the company recorded an impressive worth of £2.5 million at the end of November 2019, according to the publication.
MailOnline contacted Phil and Holly’s representatives at the time.
