He recently moved out of the £2million family home and has been staying at a flat in London.

Also joining the foursome was Ruby’s boyfriend, Will Proctor, who was seen posing in the background.   

The family were all dressed up as characters for a murder mystery game night – seemingly the first time they have been together during lockdown. 

He captioned the photo with: ‘Murder mystery night… we’re all in character and taking it very seriously.’ 

Phillip amicably moved out of the £2million family home in Oxford after revealing he is gay earlier this year. He has since been living in a flat in London.

While his wife Steph wore a bright fuchsia pink top and the girls kept it simple in black. 

Phillip also donned a pair of shades to give him an air of casual cool as he shared a snap of the murder mystery script. 

The game was called Murder in Hollywoodland and imagines a star-studded yacht party while Lucas Cameronburg was filming his biggest movie yet. 

Cameronburg gets murdered by one of the guests at dinner and it is up to the other attendees to solve the mystery.

In February, when Schofield discussed his decision to come out, he insisted: ‘We’ll always be a family’ and it’s clear they remain close. 

He also insisted he still loves Steph as much  as he did when they met ‘if not more’. 

Staff at the TV studios 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.’
