After Phillip Schofield, 57, came out as gay last month to his 2.7 million followers on Instagram, the TV presenter has continued sharing treasured family moments with his wife Stephanie Lowe and their daughters. Phillip, who is still coming into work to present This Morning, alongside Holly Willoughby, 39, despite coronavirus fears, has shown his followers he has been spending some quality time with his family during this uncertain time.
The presenter posted several images on his Instagram story including a selfie of himself with his wife and daughters.
His Instagram story included short videos of the countryside and a sweet family snap.
Followers of the presenter then saw Phillip pouring himself a shot of sloe gin from a can.
As he poured himself a drink, he said: “Halfway around the walk, reasons to be cheerful. Cheers,” and then drank the gin.

He followed up his post to pay tribute to his mum on Mother’s Day.
As the government and health experts have advised people to “social distance” and to stay at home, Phillip commented on the fact that he wished he could be celebrating Mother’s Day with his mother.
He wrote to his followers: “Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mum. Sorry I can’t see you.
“Love you mum xx,” Phillip continued alongside two pictures of himself and his mum, and one of her posing on top of a plane.
Following on from the news that all UK schools would close because of the coronavirus, Phillip and Holly continued to put on a show for all the viewers of the show, as the UK has been asked to work from home where possible.
However, while viewers were watching Holly and Phil on Friday, viewers took to Twitter to say they were “distracted” by Phil putting his hands in his pockets throughout the programme.
The Dancing On Ice host later addressed the problem as he said: “You should never present with your hands in your pockets, you get shouted at a lot.
“And people have said, ‘Why are you standing with your hands in your pockets?'”
