GROOM CUPBOARD: Schofield’s Alleged ‘Lover’ Was TEEN When He Met This Morning Host

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.

McGreevy was also a member of The 2 Faced Theatre Academy in Holmfirth, were Phillip, 57, is a patron.

The revelations and alleged affair have left many wondering what age Matthew was when the pair first met and have also brought suggestions of Mr Schofield abusing his position of power.

Matthew 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.

“I am very new to TV, and I am always learning. I have learnt a lot from The 2 faced Theatre Academy and they have opened many doors for me.”

It is not yet known when or how old he was at the time the pair started a relationship. 

Schofield is alleged to have been having the affair with the runner who was said to have been “furious” that Schofe had apparently ‘fucked him over’, and he was reportedly going to the press. 

McGreevy was said to have had a ‘close working relationship’ with Schofe, but after they had a ‘bust up’ with McGreevy left This Morning to work on rival show Loose Women.

Rumours went into over-drive on the set of the hit daytime show with Ruth Langsford lodging an official complaint.

ITV said that the runner was ‘promoted’ but other staff were said to be ‘confused’ about the move. 

“It was odd because they were so close and then he up and went to Loose Women and they didn’t seem to be talking much anymore,” one source told the Sun in 2019. 

At the time ITV said: “”It’s deeply disappointing and unfair for Phillip to be the target of this sort of malicious gossip.” 

A show insider told The Daily Star Sunday: “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.”
