Celebrities defend Jon Roseman's comments about Holly WilloughbyCelebrities including Carol McGiffin have jumped to Holly Willoughby’s defence after she was blasted a ‘bimbo’ by former celebrity agent Jon Roseman.

The trouble started when Jon, who used to represent TV presenters like Fern Britton and Jill Dando, wrote a newspaper article criticising Holly’s presenting talents.

In the article Jon claimed the This Morning presenter, 32, didn’t have a ‘single flicker of talent’. He also added: ‘Every word that drops from Holly’s finely formed lips proves just how ill-equipped she is to be a television front woman.’

Now celebrities including Carol, Phillip Schofield and Kate Garraway have voiced their support for poor Hol.

Carol, who was once represented by Jon, praised Holly saying: ‘[she] does a brilliant job on ITV’s This Morning’. While Kate called her ‘a warm, welcoming and astute businesswoman’.

Holly’s ‘TV husband’ Phil was the first to stick up for his colleague taking to Twitter to say: ‘When did the rants of a washed up, out of touch, inaccurate, old TV agent become relevant?.. Sod off Jon Roseman.’

Hear, hear Phil!
