Phillip Schofield supported by daughter as he's seen for first time since affair admission

Phillip Schofield has been seen for the first time since his bombshell resignation from This Morning being driven by his ITV driver. The presenter was seen alongside his daughter, whom he shares with his ex-wife Stephanie Lowe.

This is the first time Phil has been seen since he admitted to an "unwise but not illegal" affair with a much younger This Morning runner.

In his extraordinary statement, the 61-year-old said he had met the younger man when he was a teenager and was asked to help him get his break in television.

Phillip added that their relationship did not turn romantic until the man started to work at the show.

However, Phillip confessed he had lied to his ITV colleagues, family and agents about the nature of their relationship and resigned from the broadcaster with immediate effect.

He also apologised to his wife Stephanie for being unfaithful.

Phillip and Stephanie married in 1993 and share two daughters, Ruby, 27, and Molly, 30, the latter is a talent manager for Phil's former agency, YMU.

Phil and Stephanie remained on good terms after he came out as gay in 2020 live on This Morning.

He had previously insisted that he had kept "no secrets" from his estranged spouse.

Speaking to Lorraine Kelly after he opened up about his sexuality, the former Dancing On Ice presenter said: "[There were] lots and lots of hours talking to Steph and hugging Steph.

"We talked the whole thing through.

"There were no secrets, there have never been any secrets. What I knew, she knew."

Phil's appearance comes after his replacement on the British Soap Awards has been announced.

Phil has hosted the annual awards every year since 2006 and had previously told the public that he would be fronting it again this year.

However, his resignation from ITV meant he would no longer have a place at the ceremony.

Jane McDonald has now been confirmed as the new host for Saturday's show.
