Phillip Schofield ‘back on good terms’ with wife Stephanie after affair scandal

Former This Morning host Phillip Schofield is said to be back on "good terms" with his wife Stephanie Lowe, after he admitted to an "unwise but not illegal" affair with a younger male colleague earlier this year.

Stephanie, 59, was previously said to have been left "very angry" after her husband admitted to the affair, something he had previously lied to her about.

But it's now thought that the pair are back on talking terms, with Phillip, 61, paying regular visits to their former family home in Henley-on-Thames.

The former TV presenter is reported to have also been undergoing therapy to help him come to terms with losing his career and best friend.

Sources have told the Mail Online that Phillip has been spending time with his wife and their two daughters, Molly and Ruby.

And a friend of the former presenter told the outlet: "It's when he is with them that Phil appreciates what actually matters in his life and he is able to smile."

The friend added that Phillip has been undergoing regular therapy sessions which have been helping him come to terms with losing his career.

The source said: "Phil's life has changed in a way that previously would have been inconceivable for him to have imagined. He is spending a lot of time talking to a therapist, at least once a week.

"That's what he is mainly doing right now, reflecting on what he did wrong and trying to come to terms with his new life. It has all been an incredible shock for him and he is struggling to get his head around it.

"He feels like he needs to have someone professional to talk it all through with. The situation has put a lot of stress on his family and he decided that he needed another outlet."

OK! have contacted representatives for Phillip Schofield for comments.

It comes amid reports that Phillip is currently in talks to write a tell-all book, following his exit from ITV.

Discussing these reports, PR expert Dermot McNamara told OK! that Phillip would have "nothing to lose" by telling his side of the story, even if it meant worsening the feud between himself and his former best friend Holly Willoughby.

“Phil may well reach a point where he thinks only a book will help to clear his name, or at least help change what the public think of him,” says Dermot, who is director of PR and talent agency Candid.

“A book, from his perspective, could offer a new angle on the situation and would be seen as holding more credibility than just another interview or newspaper story,” the expert continues.
