EXCLUSIVE: Anti-Phillip Schofield protest ROCKS Soap Awards outside The Lowry 

THE SOAP Awards have been rocked by anti-Phillip Schofield protesters who turned up with  banners and signs with the faces of both Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

The Soap Awards – that was pre-recorded out of fear of any incidents or protests are being held at The Lowry Theatre in Salford, but not all locals were happy with the presence of ITV given the broadcasters links to the groomer and abuser that is Phillip Schofield – which has caused a crisis for ITV – who covered it up for years and lied to the public about it.

Video sent anonymously to Politicalite tonight shows a group of teenagers and adults peacefully protesting outside.

The signs and banners had a face of Holly Willoughby with text that read “I’m Getting The Word Nonce Enabler”.

Another sign had a picture of Schofield that read “I’m Not A Groomer” .

Another banner read “End the Peado Media”, no arrests were made.

It seems that his attempt to change public opinion by hiring former Sun showbiz reporter Gordon Smart and paying Piers Morgan to defend him on Twitter and in News Articles is failing – no wonder with the sound judge of character Morgan who has been pictured with Gary Glitter, Ghislaine Maxwell, Rolf Harris and Harvey Weinstein.


The protest came as more lurid details about his past were shared online  – that we cannot print for legal reasons – and his admissions in a BBC interview about his affair with a much younger male colleague Mathew McGreevy.

Phil said that he is living like a recluse as he fears he will be spat on in the street if he leaves his house.

He said about his fears of going outside in the wake of news of his affair emerging: “I do not know a time I will be able to walk out of the door. 

“I don’t have any spirit. My friends tell me, ‘It will get better’. It won’t. Not now. Not this one.


“You watch all these layers of you slide away and slide away and slide away. The things that were dear to you. 

“But I deserve it. It’s my fault. I deserve it.”

Phillip said he had never previously suffered abuse on the street, but asked about the prospect of being hit with it if he goes outside: “Are they spitting on me because I had an affair at work and lied about it?” 

He added he was being supported by his daughters Molly, 30, and Ruby, 27, who he had with his wife of 30 years Stephanie Lowe years before he publicly came out as gay on ‘This Morning’ in February 2020. 

Phillip added: “I am getting by hour by hour. I have got my girls and my friends.” 

He said he had deleted all apps from his phone and silenced notifications as social media has been filled with rumours about his affair. 

Phillip added about social platforms: “Why would I ever, ever go back there?” 

After announcing he was leaving all his ITV roles, he has also been dropped from brand deals and seen his wine range and collection of Boots products pulled from shelves.

Phillip also gave an interview with the BBC on Thursday in which he insisted he had not groomed his lover, despite pics of the lad who he says first got in contact with when he was aged 15. 

He told the BBC’s Amol Rajan when asked about how he first followed his future partner on Twitter when he was a teen: “It was a completely innocent backwards and forwards about a job – what is wrong with that?” 

Talking to The Sun, Phillip insisted about his lover: “I did not, I did not (groom him.) 

“There are accusations of all sorts of things. It never came across that way (an abuse of power) because we’d become mates. I don’t know about that.”
