Phillip Schofield shared a string of friendly Snapchat messages with a young TikTok star over a three year period, it has been claimed.

This Morning star Phil's occasional conversations with Oli O'Toole first came to light via a viral video the 21-year-old shared with his 74,200 followers on TikTok.

In the video, Oli showed screengrabs of messages he claims were shared between himself and the TV star.

The Manchester-based influencer, who also has a YouTube page, says he was 17 years old when he first started chatting to Phil and claims they last exchanged pleasantries on the social media app last year.

Oli shared the snippets of the chat in the TikTok video, blurring out the messages but showing Phillip's Snapchat username, PhillipSchofe. The clip showed the pair had exchanged messages in 2017 and 2020.

The TikTok star penned over the video: ”Me when people find out me and Phillip Schofield Snapchat x”.

In the now-removed video’s caption Oli is understood to have wrote the words: ”i see the envy”.

Alongside the TikTok upload, which was viewed by intrigued onlookers 340,000 times before it was taken down, Oli added a range of hashtags which read: ”#foryou #funny #phillipschofield #snapchat #famous”.

After the video went viral, Oli has clarified his claims in a statement on his Instagram story.

It read: “this is crazy to write but let me explain: Phillip Schofield replied to me (a fan) about 4 times in the space of 3 years.."

“I posted it as part of a trend on Tiktok…”

Old added: “I didn’t sell the story to tell a reporter. There is no story, depth of underling lying thing. Stop trying to make it something it isnt.

“Thank you to everyone whos understood how random and pathetic it is, Love you x”.

Since posting his TikTok video on Tuesday, the clip has been removed from Oli's page.

OK! has contacted Phillip’s representatives for comment.

Earlier this year Phil came out as gay in an emotional statement on his Instagram page, before discussing his sexuality on This Morning.

Phillip remains married to wife of 27 years Stephanie Lowe, with who he shares daughters Ruby and Molly.

Last year it was reported the TV presenter had moved out of then family home, but he rubbished the claims and was snapped spending time with Stephanie, Ruby and Molly in the large family pad during lockdown.

Then, in March it was reported Phillip and Stephanie had bought a £800,000 home together.

The property was bought via Fistral Properties, the company they jointly established in 2019 and which takes its name from Fistral Beach in Newquay, Cornwall, close to where Schofield grew up.
