Phillip Schofield was seen arriving at his new central London flat on Monday – having recently moved out of his £2million family home following the announcement that he is gay.

Ten weeks after coming out on national television, the 58-year-old This Morning presenter was pictured stepping out of a black car and into his new home, which is miles from the sprawling Oxfordshire property his wife Steph still lives at.

Wearing a plaid green shirt and skinny jeans, Phil headed inside with a black bag slung over his shoulder.

In a recent video he posted on Instagram of a Clap For Carers tribute, a view of the Shard in central London could be seen through his window – giving fans their first glimpse at his new digs.

Schofield had shared his family home in Oxford with Steph, his wife of 27 years, and their daughters Molly, 27, and Ruby, 24. 

It is not clear if his new home is temporary or permanent.

In February, when Schofield discussed his decision to come out, he insisted: ‘We’ll always be a family.’

He also insisted he still loves Steph as much as he did when they met. 

Staff at TV have been made aware of the star’s change of address, including the drivers who ferry him to and from the studio.

A source said: ‘There has been talk for weeks that Phillip isn’t living with Steph any more, that he had moved out for good and had a new home. He has a place in central London.

‘It’s not as big but it’s the beginning of a new life for him. It very much also seems as though their marriage could well be over.’

Schofield surprised fans on February 7 by issuing a statement on social media declaring that after 27 years of marriage, he was ‘coming to terms with the fact that I am gay’.

In a choreographed follow-up, he took his place on the This Morning sofa besides co-host Holly Willoughby to further pour his heart out.

Writing on Instagram about his decision to come out, he said: ‘With the strength and support of my wife and daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.

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

He later admitted in a newspaper interview that it was too early to say if he and Steph would stay married.

‘It has taken me a long time to get here, I am not rushing to get to any other place,’ he said. ‘We will always be a family… And where the wind blows us I don’t know. But I still love Steph as much as when we first met. More probably.’
