Phillip Schofield’s marriage to Stephanie Lowe revisited as he admits to affair | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Phillip Schofield, 61, has now admitted to cheating on his wife of 30 years, Stephanie Lowe, 59, in a sensational statement, which also saw him part ways with ITV.
In a statement to The Daily Mail, the former This Morning presenter admitted that he “did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague at This Morning”, adding that the relationship, which took place while he was still married to Stephanie “was unwise, but not illegal”.
He added an apology to his wife and colleagues: “I am painfully conscious that I have lied to my employers at ITV, to my colleagues and friends, to my agents, to the media and therefore the public and most importantly of all to my family.
“I am so very, very sorry, as I am for having been unfaithful to my wife.”
Phillip and Stephanie got married in 1993 at Ackergill Tower in Scotland after meeting whilst they were at the BBC.

Even when Phil publicly announced that he was gay, Stephanie stood by his side and supported him.
The mother-of-two then followed up to announce that the two had separated in 2020, but stated that she still loved him.
She told The Sun: “I love Phillip, as much today as I ever have, and always will.
“Our family have also been so supportive and will help us going forward.”
Stephanie added: “Although this is difficult for us all, I support Phillip in taking this brave step. I will still be there, holding his hand.
