Phillip Schofield comes out as gay

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-51414010

TV presenter Phillip Schofield has revealed he is gay, after 27 years of marriage to his wife Stephanie Lowe.

The 57-year-old made the announcement via a statement posted on his Instagram story.

"Today, quite rightly, being gay is a reason to celebrate and be proud," he wrote.

"Yes, I am feeling pain and confusion, but that comes only from the hurt that I am causing to my family."

Schofield presents ITV programmes including Dancing On Ice and This Morning, which won a National Television Award last week.

The presenter was interviewed by his co-host Holly Willoughby on Friday's edition of This Morning.

"You know this has been bothering me for a very long time," he said. "Everybody does this at their own speed when the time is right."

The presenter added his sexuality has recently "become an issue in my head".

This comes off as an attempt to distract from the bad press Phillip's been getting lately for feuding with his fellow This Morning hosts.

Even ignoring that, how is coming out as gay groundbreaking whatsoever in f*cking 2020, where it’s nearly completely unsurprising and acceptable?

Honestly, I read Shark's comment as pure sarcasm

Congrats to gay people everywhere. The world is a changin'.



Oh wait, this is the same stuff we've heard about since before people had to watch The Torch Song Trilogy in college sociology classes.

-yawn-
