Anthea Turner says her bitter feud with Eamonn Holmes forced her off 'GMTV'.
The 61-year-old presenter - who hosted 'GMTV' with Eamonn between 1994 to 1996 - claims she was unfairly labelled as ambitious and ruthless and it negatively affected her career.
She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: "Revenge is a dish best served sweet. Best of all, I’m still here.
"I thought it was sad. I just wanted to do the job I enjoyed, but unfortunately the roles have to be labelled.
"I was always asked if I was ambitious and, if I said yes, I was made out to be a ruthless person who would walk over anybody to get where I wanted. It would be said that I was hormonal, or I was stamping my feet.
"And yet ask that question to a man, and if he’s ambitious, we think, ‘What a guy’.
"You’d never hear anyone say that about Eamonn or Phillip Schofield. No, they’re just doing their job.”
Anthea and Eamonn, 61 - who famously labelled her 'Princess Tippy Toes' - have since buried the hatchet but she admitted she can't entirely forget.
She said: "I think as you get older, you look back and smile. It’s more like water off a duck’s back now.
“I definitely haven’t got ‘bitter’ or ‘twisted’ tattooed across my forehead.
“I haven’t weighed myself down with anything from the past, or any of that negativity."
