Phillip Schofield 'moves out of family home into London flat'

Phillip Schofield is said to have moved into a flat in central London.

The This Morning presenter apparently made the move from the Oxfordshire home he shared with wife Steph and their daughters Molly and Ruby to mark the ‘beginning of a new life’.

It comes nearly two months after he came out as gay and could potentially signal the end of his marriage to Steph after 27 years.

A source told The Mail on Sunday: ‘There has been talk for weeks that Phillip isn’t living with Steph any more, that he had moved out for good and had a new home. He has a place in central London.

‘It’s not as big but it’s the beginning of a new life for him.

‘It very much also seems as though their marriage could well be over.’

Phil’s publicist declined to comment when contacted by Metro.co.uk.

In March the Dancing On Ice host shared a video of himself taking part in Clap for Carers during the first week of the coronavirus lockdown, and the view from his window was of the Shard building in London.

The much-loved TV star came out in February of this year in a statement posted to his Instagram page.

The 57-year-old wrote: ‘You never know what’s going on in someone’s seemingly perfect life, what issues they are struggling with, or the state of their wellbeing – and so you won’t know what has been consuming me for the last few years. With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.

He continued: ‘My inner conflict contrasts with an outside world that has changed so very much for the better. Today, quite rightly, being gay is a reason to celebrate and be proud. Yes, I am feeling pain and confusion, but that only comes from the hurt I am causing for my family.

‘Steph has been incredible – I love her so very much. She is the kindest soul that I have ever met. My girls have been astonishing in their love, hugs and encouraging and words of comfort. Both mine and Steph’s entire families have stunned me with their love, instant acceptance and support. Of course they are worried about Steph, but I know they will scoop us both up.’

Phil then praised This Morning and Dancing On Ice co-host Holly Willoughby, saying: ‘My friends are the best, especially Holly, who has been so kind and wise – and who has hugged me as I sobbed on her shoulder. At ITV, I couldn’t hope to work with more wonderful, supportive teams.’
