Oh, right PhilFebruary 7, 2020 Tim WorstallSex32 CommentsBut the presenter said he is not ready yet for a relationship with a man. previousYes Spud, quite sonextCurrent Odds for the 2020 Presidential Election – Things to Know 32 thoughts on “Oh, right Phil” Ian B February 7, 2020 at 2:22 pm He always seemed quite teh ghey, back in the broom cupboard. But at his age isn’t that sort of thing supposed to be winding down anyway? You know, replaced with a shed and a hobby. Steve February 7, 2020 at 2:30 pm How the hell can you be gay after being that close to Holly’s willoughboobies? I’d be on that like the Milk Tray man at a speedboat convention. Andrew M February 7, 2020 at 2:50 pm “Middle-aged man leaves his wife because he wants to sleep around” – not a headline I expect to see, alas. Edward Lud February 7, 2020 at 2:56 pm “I’d be on that like the Milk Tray man at a speedboat convention.” Steve, I’m not the first to demand a new keyboard from you, but I *do* demand a new keyboard and I give you the kindly advice that you might offset some of your keyboard-based losses by buying shares in keyboard making firms. BraveFart February 7, 2020 at 3:11 pm I think my Gaydar is not very sensitive, but I predict I could watch Dancing On Ice when he’s on with the sound turned down, wearing earplugs and a thick sleeping mask, and I’d still be able to detect a raving poofter. And he’ll not be able to claim to be the only Gay in the ITV village Witchie February 7, 2020 at 3:11 pm ‘those’ rather than ‘that’? moqifen February 7, 2020 at 3:19 pm Reminds me of Bruce Jenner – so much of a woman that he now got a girlfriend. Seems he thinks he’s changed his sex but not his sexuality. RichardT February 7, 2020 at 4:11 pm Isn’t he the one who started his telly career with his hand up Gordon the Gopher’s bottom? Can’t say I’m shocked at this news. Theophrastus February 7, 2020 at 4:21 pm “I’d be on that like the Milk Tray man at a speedboat convention.” Or like a rat up a drain pipe? Excavator Man February 7, 2020 at 4:28 pm Surely he’s Bi? Edward Lud February 7, 2020 at 4:57 pm Perhaps we’re all missing the point of Tom’s filet de Schofield a la Chateaubriand de Ballsac en Resievingend (1): *why* is he not ready for a relationship with a man? (1) for culinary and linguistic purists, it’s fusion from the town of Condom (snigger) and the city of Brest (snigger). BraveFart February 7, 2020 at 4:59 pm If he’d simply changed gender he would not have had to come out as gay as he would remain heterosexual Ironman February 7, 2020 at 6:09 pm Do tou know what, thid isn’t funny. A woman is married to a man for 27 years, gives him her youth, her looks, her prospects and two daughters, then he tells her he’s gay. Everyone who’s eanyone and no one calls him “brave” and forgets to mention her except as a device for praising him. Gay or straight, he’s a cunt BniC February 7, 2020 at 6:28 pm Also in the news today man convicted for rape over pretending to represent a modelling agency and talking women into sex at a fake photo shoot Apparently by lying he removed their agency for consent While I’ve no problem with scum like this being locked up that seems a very dodgy way to go around it, at what point does fraud resulting in sex constitute rape? How about that classic of promising the mistress you’ll leave the wife? If you don’t then is it now rape? BniC February 7, 2020 at 6:30 pm Actually as Phillip made wedding vows and many other statements to his wife, maybe even asserting he was straight at one point does this constitute a fraud sufficient to remove her agency to consent and should he be charged with rape? RichardT February 7, 2020 at 6:34 pm Ironman said: “Gay or straight, he’s a cunt” Yes, but he’s on the telly; the default assumption is that he’s a cunt. Steve February 7, 2020 at 7:26 pm M’Lud – Chateaubriand de Ballsac en Resievingend Magnifique! Theo – Shag-a-doodle-do Ironman – It’s a bit shit, yes. There’s a lot to be said for Victorian hypocrisy – at least they never expected to be celebrated for stepping out of their marriages. Theophrastus February 7, 2020 at 7:41 pm Mr Lud: *applause!* Chernyy_Drakon February 7, 2020 at 7:59 pm Why is this celebrated as being brave? Loads of people are out. Nobody really cares any more. If he decided to come out in Saudi Arabia, that would be brave. I heard this at work and immediately filed under “Don’t care.” And why is his wife supporting this? All i can think is that soon we’ll be seeing articles in mags and the papers by her titled “Why i support my husband for wanting to bum other men.” maybe a book as well in the future. Pcar February 7, 2020 at 8:08 pm @BF Isn’t Philly on Al-Beeb. @Ironman +1 I find all the media luvvies congratulating him nauseating. The selfish poofter has been deceiving his wife and family for decades. Hope she takes him to the cleaners Met Phillip Schofield when he was lead actor in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, he seemed gay to me. Great performance and amazing ending – spoiler alert Hmm, not very closeted: pinkroom100 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OD0R8QPp-bI . Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat Spoiler Alert – Don’t read below if not seen . Joseph rose up from stage to circle on a “cherry picker”* thing, we were front row centre and could almost have touched him. * Not in this theatre: no rising platforms out into the audience Pcar February 7, 2020 at 8:09 pm @BniC +1 Weinstein’s defence lawyer is “Bad” says Guardian Why? Reading emails from his “victims” who kept seeing him, asking favours, offering gifts etc for years after he allegedly raped them Ian B February 7, 2020 at 8:40 pm I doubt there’d be as much enthusiasm for somebody gay announcing they’ve realised they’re actually straight. Alf Dubbs lives in the Lake District February 7, 2020 at 9:25 pm The question is, when does he come out as Jewish? Bloke in Costa Rica February 8, 2020 at 3:33 am I was surprised all those years ago when he came out as straight. MC February 8, 2020 at 4:52 am I would say in Phil’s defence that he waited until his kids were grown up before leaving his wife, which is more than many – gay or straight – do. That said, I am increasingly on the side of the ancients with regard to the concept of sexual ‘orientation’. Phil has been giving his wife on every now and then for nearly 30 years, so he’s not exactly repulsed by ladyparts. Roué le Jour February 8, 2020 at 8:07 am No one was going to accuse Pip of toxic masculinity anyway. I tend to side with the ladies in that if you didn’t grow up as one you aren’t one, and that would apply to gays as well as ladies. As you age, your hormone balance changes. Suddenly being struck by some little Tadzio doesn’t really make you gay, just ask the diversity. Have a wank and think about redoing the kitchen.

Talk to women in their 50s and they’d consider beautiful kids, a nice house and plenty of money as pretty much a good place? They tend to be less bothered about regular pounding by cock than in their 20s. Jussi February 8, 2020 at 9:16 am So if I lie to someone that I have a villa in Provence, let’s shag and next month go there and shag some more, and she is willing, that is a rape. So why isn’t Schofield guilty of prolonged rape lasting decades? Bloke on M4 February 8, 2020 at 2:20 pm Latest rumour is that he was shagging a runner on the show, messed him around and the guy was going to go public. I’m going to bet his wife is getting millions for the “very supportive” line. MC February 8, 2020 at 3:08 pm I must have been feeling tolerant yesterday. He was bound to have been on the verge of being outed. I was also forgetting about something that a relative who works in environmental health told me. Every now and then they have to investigate incidences of certain horrible shit-linked conditions and often find that the ‘victim’ is a chap who’s been indulging in arse sex a-plenty – often at rather insanitary ‘bathhouses’ and not been paying enough attention to hygiene. Thing is, a substantial portion of these guys turn out to be married and end up passing something disgusting to their unknowing wife. Pcar February 8, 2020 at 10:13 pm I recall interviewing Phillip Schofield when he was in Joseph And The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat in the West End. My gay radar (gaydar) went into overdrive. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-7980263/ANDREW-PIERCE-know-experience-hard-come-salute-Phillip-Schofield.html https://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-7980243/ALISON-BOSHOFF-Rumours-Phillip-Schofield-circulated-years.html Appears Phillip Schofield’s wife has always been a Beard and children too from some age. His not wanting sex with men hints he’s asexual If BoM4’s correct, they may all be covering for his peccadilloes Ian B February 9, 2020 at 12:04 am “I was surprised all those years ago when he came out as straight.” Ditto.
