Phillip Schofield has revealed that he didn’t know he was gay when he got married.
The This Morning host, 58, also said he and his wife of 27 years, Stephanie Lowe, are “holding on as much as we can” and divorce is not on the table.
What did Phillip Schofield say about his marriage?
Appearing on Irish chatshow The Late Late Show, Phil opened up about his turbulent year.
“When I knew, Steph knew,” he told host Ryan Tubridy.
“I wouldn’t have got married if I had known then, it was absolutely not a factor and it wasn’t in my head.
Phil continued: “My life was perfect. I had a wonderful career and a wonderful marriage.
“Steph and I are still holding as much as we can.”
What else did Phil say?
When Ryan asked Phillip if there were plans for divorce, the dad-of-two denied that a formal settlement was on the cards.
“We are, without question, a work in progress,” he said.
“We love being together, so I am holding the one solid thing that we all have in our lives and that is family.
“I am holding onto dignity and if I could have done this without hurting anybody that would be my absolute plan.”
What else has Phillip said about divorce this week?
Earlier on this week, Phillip backed up the claims.
In an interview with Chris Evans on his podcast, How To Wow, he said there had been no talk of divorce.
“I’m still married to Steph,” he said.
“There is a great deal of talk of divorce… we have not discussed that at all.”
Asked if he would still be wearing his wedding ring, Phillip replied that he didn’t know because he was still married.
