DAYTIME telly king Phillip Schofield has been booted out of the marital home following his alleged affair with a This Morning runner.
The Mail on Sunday revealed that Phillip, 58 had moved to a new address after being kicked out by wife Steph after coming out in late February.
However, Politicalite can exclusively reveal that Schofield was kicked out following bombshell revelations that he was having an alleged affair with a male runner who worked on the set of the hit ITV daytime show.
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.”
THE INSIDE STORY ON TV ‘GOLDEN’ BOY
PHILLIP Schofield, 58 was alleged to have been having the secret affair with This Morning runner Matthew Mcgreevy.
Mcgreevy was said to have been “furious” that Schofe had apparently ‘f*cked him over’ and was reportedly going to go to the press.
The runner had a ‘close working-relationship’ with Schofe but after they had a ‘bust up’ the studio runner left This Morning to work on rival ITV show Loose Women – fronted by Ruth Langsford.
Rumours went into over-drive on the set of the hit daytime show after Langsford lodged an official complaint.
ITV said that the runner was ‘promoted’ but other staff were said to be ‘confused’ about the move.
The 58-year-old star is now living in a London apartment where he commutes to ITV’s White City studios where This Morning is filmed – but sources tell Politicalite he could be living in White City.
Sources have claimed to Politicalite that Phillip might be living with a ‘high-flying’ businessman at White City’s swanky Television Centre redevelopment – though we must stress this is just a claim.
The 58-year-old telly star was spotted with the hunky ‘mystery’ man by a source in March 2019 at White City’s swanky Bluebird Restaurant – yards away from the flat at TVC.
The mystery man could be the reason why This Morning runner Mcgreevy was “furious” that Schofe had apparently ‘f*cked him over’.
The posh restaurant is next to the ITV Daytime Studios and luxury apartments and boasts VIP Champagne at up to £130 a bottle.
Speaking exclusively to Politicalite, an eyewitness who spotted the pair at Bluebird said: “I saw them together and I said to my friend I didn’t know Phillip Schofield was Gay, she said he’s not, he is married, and I said to her that they didn’t look like that to me, I thought they looked more like a couple.”
A This Morning insider told The Daily Star Sunday that “Lots of people who work at This Morning have known Phillip is gay for a few years”.
“It was an open secret among the team but none of them would have ever said anything about it publicly,” and according to one source, he often took younger gay guys “under his wing” and became a mentor to them.
They said: “Phillip is a very caring guy. Over the years he has supported others who are gay and made sure they feel comfortable to be themselves.
“There was one runner who was struggling to deal with his sexuality and Phillip was quick to offer support and become a mentor for him.”
HOW SCHOFE MET HIS GOPHER
PHILLIP Schofield’s alleged gay lover, Matthew McGreevy was 18 years old when he was invited down to the This Morning studios for an exclusive backstage tour of the hit daytime show.
In 2014, before he landed the plush runner job on the show Mr McGreevy, then 18, ‘got a taste for television’ spending the day with Phil and his co-host Holly Willoughby after being invited for an ‘access all areas’ tour at ITV’s then-London Studios.
Mathew was also a member of The 2 Faced Theatre Academy in Holmfirth, were Phillip, 58, was a patron.
He told The Manchester Evening News at the time: “I couldn’t believe how everything was done so quickly and I learnt a lot from Phillip Schofield.
SCHOFE WAS CAUGHT HIDING HIS JOHNSON!
THE WORLD’S Number One Paparazzi George Bamby Salvador also confirmed Politicalite’s bombshell revelations about Mathew McGreevy in February.
Bamby-Salvador told Politicalite: “I’ve been on [This Morning] three times and know four production staff.”
“To sum it all up in a nutshell – He’s been shagging around behind his wife’s back and he’s been caught out.”
“Now it’s being managed by his agent and PR people, to make him come out of this smelling of roses…end of!””
George, who is also the long lost son of notorious Gangster Charles Bronson posted a photo of himself online with his lover: “This is the ITV runner Matthew McGreevy who forced Phillip Schofield to come out.”
“He had a deal in place with the Sunday papers to sell his story but although (we) the press are sometimes wankers we NEVER make people afraid or ashamed about their sexuality.”
More WILL follow.
PAP BAMBY MET HIS LAG DAD!
THE WORLD’s number one photographer is also the son of legendary prisoner Charles Bronson.
He was invited to meet his notorious lag dad at HMP Wakefield in 2018 after Bronson spotted hin in the Channel 4 documentary.
George told This Morning of his ‘fear and excitement’ when he met his dad for the first time revealing to hosts Eamon and Ruth: “I was frightened at first.”
