ITV confirms This Morning's return amid Phillip Schofield drama
ITV has issued confirmation of This Morning’s future amid the fallout of Phillip Schofield’s affair confession.
The 61-year-old host admitted in a lengthy statement on Friday (May 26) that, after years of speculation, he did indeed have a relationship with a much younger male colleague at This Morning.
He apologised to ITV bosses, his colleagues, and family members, having lied about the affair.
It took place while he was married to wife Stephanie – with whom he shares two grown-up daughters – and before he came out as gay in 2020.
As a result, Phil resigned from ITV with ‘immediate effect’, announcing that he will no longer be hosting the British Soap Awards next Saturday, which would’ve been his last public commitment.
Viewers have since been speculating over whether This Morning will be back at all, but an ITV spokesperson has now issued a statement to Metro.co.uk.
They said: ‘This Morning will be back on Monday.’
It has not yet been confirmed who will host the show.
However, Alison Hammond and Dermot O’Leary did step in last week, usually only hosting on Fridays.
