However, other fans decided to take to the platform and voice their support for Phillip after coming out.
One This Morning fan said: “Well done Phil … Love to the family hope everything works out well for everyone.”
A second agreed: “@Schofe will always be loved and unjudged by his fans, friends, family, colleagues, peers and fellow humans with hearts. Well done Phil.”
While a third added: “Well done Phil, almost made me cry listening to Holly read that this morning. Everyone loves you for you, it makes no difference what your sexuality is. I wish you and your family all the happiness in the world xx.”
