Phillip Schofield puts on a united display with estranged wife Stephanie Lowe


Phillip Schofield put on a united display with his estranged wife Stephanie Lowe at Gino D’Acampo’s restaurant launch on Saturday.

The TV star called their relationship a ‘work in progress’ earlier this year and insisted they hadn’t discussed divorce.

Late last year, the host admitted he is ‘not fixed in any way’ and he still has to ‘come to terms’ with his life after publicly coming out as gay in February.

Talking about his family on BBC Radio 5 Live, the Dancing On Ice star said: ‘We love each other massively. We are a loving family, that hasn’t changed… it’s us four but different.

‘We are a work in progress. I’ve been very honest about all of this and there’s no question, we have to pick our way through this daily as a family.

The media personality also explained how a legal end to their marriage has not been brought up, telling Chris Evans on his How To Wow podcast: ‘I’m still married to Steph.

The father-of-two has credited his longtime spouse for being supportive following his revelation. 

The TV star previously told co-star Holly Willoughby on This Morning: ‘There’s no one in my life who would have supported me the way, as a wife, as the way she supported me. She’s astonishing, literally astonishing.’
