Phillip Schofield’s younger lover landed a spot on five different ITV shows over five years
- Philip Schofield’s younger lover got his first ITV job as a runner in 2016
- The ITV host appears to have acted as his lover’s mentor before the relationship
The younger lover at the heart of the furore was handed roles alongside Phillip Schofield on five ITV shows over five years.
The revelation raises fresh questions about how much ITV bosses knew about the pair’s connections.
Schofield appears to have acted as a mentor for the young man, who is 35 years his junior, before embarking on the relationship.
ITV has said both men denied any romance when questioned about it.
The channel’s boss Dame Carolyn McCall has confirmed that the young man did work experience on This Morning aged 19 before landing jobs on shows from 20.

His first ITV job was in January 2016, when he worked as a runner on another top show. Three months later he joined This Morning as a runner.
Within a month he was added to the This Morning Live team.
As well as working on three other ITV shows with Schofield, in April 2017 he secured a promotion on This Morning.
Staff were also asked to help create a showreel for him, which sources say was ‘a favour for Phillip’.
