LADY Colin Campbell insists Phillip Schofield did shove her at a showbiz party.
The socialite’s son Dima claimed last week on Twitter that the push took place at an awards ceremony – and accused Phillip of “hating authoritative women.”
And now Lady C has backed her son’s comments, by telling the Mirror: “I was in a walkway, and Philip Schofield bounced into me, shoved me, trying to knock me down, obviously so I would look ridiculous or think I was drunk or some such thing.
“I said to him ‘excuse me!’ but I didn’t know who it was until he’d walked past.”
The Sun has contacted a representative for Phillip for comment.
Her version of events come days after Dima added fuel to his mother’s recent exchange with Phillip on This Morning over her tell-all book about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
Writing over a clip of Lady C on the ITV show, Dima said: “I personally remember when you tried to shove my mother at the ITV awards. You hate authoritative women!”
It is unclear what award show Dima is referring to in his accusation.
This comes after their intense interview last Wednesday where Phillip was labelled “ignorant” by Lady C – while he called her a “gossip”.
The author claims in her new book – Meghan and Harry: The Real Story – Meghan orchestrated their move to the United States to launch her political career – with the idea to run for President.
Speaking to hosts Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby live from her home, Lady C said: “That is what she told people.
“She’s told people her ultimate amibition is to run for President.
“And she announced last week that she is going into politics, notwithstanding the fact that no member of the British royal family is allowed to enter politics.”
Philip clashed with Lady Colin Campbell on other points in the awkward interview about her tell-all book about Meghan and Harry, and she even labelled him “ignorant”.
Dancing On Ice’s Phillip called the book “tawdry and undignified”, and said: “I’d be surprised any of the royals would want to get involved with more gossip after your Princess Diana book.”
The aristocrat defended herself saying: “It’s history in the making. That shows how ignorant you are if I may point out.
“My Diana biography was named the most believable by People Magazine and had it not been for that biography, Diana would have thrown Prince Charles to the wolves.”
The interview turned fiery as Phillip asked if it was difficult that the book was “unverified” by the royals.
At one point, Lady C suggested she doesn’t leak stories to the press, and Phillip labelled her a “gossip”.
