Phillip Schofield shoots down a troll who suggested he was in a new relationship on Instagram


Phillip Schofield shot a troll who suggested that he might have a relationship with a man with whom he loved a socially distanced walk.

Instagram users questioned a photo the presenter uploaded that showed him on a walk with the friend in the countryside.

The presenter of This Morning said it was his first walking “with a companion” since lock restrictions were relaxed.

However, social media users questioned the couple’s relationship after Schofield became gay a few months ago.

The presenter was forced to state that the person in the photo was a family friend.

He posted: “First socially distant walk with a companion! Thanks Simon Schofield .. last person I had a drink with before the wheels fell, first I saw it while we were trying to tie them up! “

The photo shows the host in the foreground with a young man in the back of the photo in the countryside.

However, an Instagram user replied, “Mate, that’s what they call it these days.”

Presenter has two children with wife Stephanie Lowe (PA)

The presenter responded to the comment: “Yes! Companion! They’re what they call family friends you’ve known for 20 years and who’re coming to check on you. “

When he came out in February, he said, “With the strength and support of my wife and daughters, I have come to terms with the fact that I am gay.

“My inner conflict contrasts with an outside world that has changed so much for the better. Today, rightly, being gay is reason to celebrate and to be proud. “
