    Vanessa Feltz dodged questions about pal Phillip Schofield after months of rumours that she is relaunching his TV career.

    The former This Morning frontman and his TV star pal were spotted deep in conversation at a London restaurant earlier this month sparking rumours that the blonde vixen was working to resurrect his broken career.

    But her recent appearance at the National Television Awards on Tuesday (September 6) saw the Celebs Go Dating star keep her cards close to her chest when asked a question about her involvement in his potential TV comeback.

    When asked how Phil is doing, she told Daily Star and other press: "You will have to ask him” and declined to comment.

    Vanessa instead explained what she has learned about herself following her Celebs Go Dating stint, revealing she is “done” with reality TV.

    “I’ve learned not to do any more reality TV. If I was thinking of going into the jungle, definitely not. I’ve known all these years that if you can’t do it, they can’t show it,” she said.

    Their meeting together marked the first sighting of Phil with a fellow This Morning colleague since stepping down from his many presenting gigs at ITV.

    Rumours about Phil’s potential return have recently hit a bump with insiders now indicating that such a comeback is unlikely, with Phil planning to continue keeping a low profile for some time.

    A source stated: "There were rumors flying around about him making a comeback, but that just isn't going to happen. TV channels are keeping their distance.

    "Vanessa was putting the feelers out to TalkTV producers about Phil having a segment there, but they gave her a hard “no”.

    “He’s almost been blacklisted from TV."

    His departure from ITV came after he acknowledged engaging in an “unwise but not illegal” affair with a younger male colleague.

    When questioned about a possible move to TalkTV, Phillip's lawyer conveyed that he hadn't "heard anything to that effect from him."

    Vanessa frequently appeared on This Morning alongside Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

    She now hosts her own Talk TV show, potentially providing an opportunity for Phillip's involvement.

    However, he asserted in a recent interview that his TV career was over.

    Phillip acknowledged that he had "lost everything" after his affair, leading to his resignation from ITV.

    He was subsequently dropped by his talent agency YMU.

    The father-of-two also admitted to misleading ITV bosses and his co-host, Holly Willoughby, with whom he had fronted the show since 2009.
