This Morning host Phillip Schofield has been married to his wife Stephanie Lowe for the past 27 years. The couple share two daughters together; Ruby and Molly.
Earlier this year, Phillip announced on his Instagram account that he was gay and later spoke about his sexuality with his co-star Holly Willouhgby on This Morning.
The ITV favourite has since admitted his “greatest concern” is for his wife and explained it wasn’t in his “nature” to hurt anyone.
His admission comes as he spoke openly about his future with his other half.
Speaking about the current status of their relationship, Phillip divulged: “We’re picking our way through. It’s a work in progress.”

The vicar probed into whether the presenter would be interested in joining him for dinner some time, as he said: “If you’re looking for a bit of company Phillip? Broadcaster, gay, in his middle years. Drink, dinner?”
Phillip responded: “Are you asking me out?”
Co-host Shaun Keaveny added: “I feel like a bit of a gooseberry now.”
Listeners were stunned by the exchange as they tweeted their admiration for Richard.
