PHILLIP Schofield was excluded from the guest list for This Morning co-star Eamonn Holmes’ 60th birthday party.
Eamonn’s wife Ruth Langsford refused to invite him.
Schofield, 57 — at the centre of a “civil war” with some ITV colleagues — was a noticeable absentee from the bash on Tuesday.
News of the snub comes after The Sun revealed popular host Ruth, 59, had made a formal complaint against the star after he “rudely” cut her off mid-air.
Hundreds of guests, including Piers Morgan, Charlotte Hawkins, Vanessa Feltz, Amanda Holden and Phillip’s co-host Holly Willoughby got invites to London’s Hari hotel.
Even Anthea Turner — whom Eamonn once called “Princess Tippytoes” — was on the guest list.
A source said: “Phillip did not get an invite and it was awkward, although the official line was it was a ‘small intimate affair, for family and close friends’.
“But Eamonn clearly is going to support his wife after she complained about Phil.”
In addition to the champagne-fuelled surprise party for 100, Ruth also organised a romantic trip to Vienna for her husband of nine years.
Eamonn was also surprised by colleagues on air who treated him to a personalised birthday cake – an edible Eamonn sitting on a sofa reading a newspaper – and a wealth of balloons.
The decision not to invite Phillip comes after we revealed the silver-haired star had fallen out with Amanda Holden. And on Saturday The Sun told how his relationship with Holly, 38, had become “strained”.
