Speaking about this, William Hill spokesperson, Lee Phelps, said: “With speculation over Phillip Schofield’s relationship with fellow presenter Holly Willoughby intensifying over the past few days, Schofield’s position as host on This Morning is looking more untenable by the day.
He continued: "If Schofield were to depart the show, we make Dermot O’Leary the joint 5/2 favourite to assume the role, having already had experience with presenting the Friday edition alongside Allison Hammond."
Joining him next is Vernon Kay, 49, who is known for fronting numerous shows, mainly for ITV, these include: T4, All Star Family Fortunes, Beat the star, and many more.
“Vernon Kay is the alternative 5/2 favourite to take over between Mondays and Thursdays," the spokesperson said.

Phil spoke exclusively to The Sun a day after we revealed their TV relationship was in peril.
The pair looked ill-at-ease on the ITV daytime hit yesterday.
Hours later Phil, 61, gave us a statement in an apparent bid to keep Holly, 42, on side.
Pouring out his heart, Phil said: “As I have said before, Holly is my rock.
“We’re the best of friends — as always, she is an incredible support on screen, behind the scenes and on the phone.
"Holly has always been there for me, through thick and thin. And I’ve been there for her.
“The last few weeks haven’t been easy for either of us.”
Phil took three weeks off the show in March as his brother Timothy Schofield, 54, was convicted of child sex offences.
He is due to be sentenced next week. Phil’s statement added: “My family went through a real ordeal.
“And Holly’s support throughout meant the world to me, as did the support of my bosses at ITV, my editor Martin Frizell and the whole This Morning family, including our amazing viewers.
"And of course Holly has herself been ill with shingles.
"Whatever happens, we still have each other to count on."
Following the statement, a show source said: “This is desperate stuff from Phil.
