Anthea Turner has admitted that she is still "sore" about her famous feud with Eamonn Holmes.

The TV presenter hosted GMTV with Eamonn in the nineties, who accused her of being ruthless and vain and famously nicknamed her "Princess Tippy Toes".

In an new interview, Anthea admitted that it still upseta her that she was thought of in that way, even though the duo have resolved their issues and she even appeared on This Morning with him in 2018.

She said: "I haven’t weighed myself down with anything from the past, or any of that negativity.

"Nobody likes injustice, nobody wants to be misrepresented. It hurts, it really hurts."

Anthea added to The Sun: "I'd read things about myself and think, 'I don't know that person.'"

The atmosphere on the GMTV set was tense amid Eamonn and Anthea's feud.

On Anthea's last day on the show, Eamonn was seen storming off set as she was given a champagne toast.

He also wasn't invited to her glitzy leaving bash at the Belvedere restaurant in Holland Park.

The duo ended their feud in 2005 when Eamonn left the ITV show for Sky and reached out with a phone call to Anthea.

He apparently told her that their 11-year feud had gone on long enough.

"One of the things I wanted to do leaving GMTV was to tie up loose ends," he told the Sunday Mirror in 2005.

"So I got in touch with Anthea. It was something there that should have been put to rest a long time ago."

He added: "I bear Anthea absolutely no ill-will at all.

"In many ways our strings were pulled by other people who I still actually do bear ill-will towards us. They know who they are."

In 2009 they cemented their truce when Anthea joined him on the sofa of his BBC show in Northern Ireland, The Friday Show.

Eamonn said at the time: "We have put the past behind us. It is nice that we are at a stage in our lives when we can finally do just that."
