According to one source, Phil’s sexuality was an “open secret” in this morning’s set, and he is said to have told ITV bosses about his plans for a spontaneous meeting on Thursday.

An insider of the show now has the Daily star: “Many people who work at This Morning have known that Phillip has been gay for a few years.

The source added that this morning the media personality would openly socialize with the other gay men and often take them ‘under his wing’.

Phillip would support men who struggled to deal with their sexuality, including one runner who he eventually became a mentor.

It is also claimed that his good friend and co-host Holly Willoughby had been aware of Phil’s sexuality for some time.

MailOnline has contacted representatives of Phillip Schofield and This Morning for comments at the time of publication.

“Everyone who knew him knew he was gay!”: Earlier this week, Joan raised eyebrows at Good Morning Britain when she wondered why presenter Phillip should appear gay.

Phillip revealed last week that he had been “consumed” for years by a secret battle with his sexuality before finally making the decision to come out as a gay after a series of “heartbreaking” conversations with his family.

In an emotional statement shared with millions of Instagram followers, the veteran star admitted that he had suffered “dark moments, pain and confusion” as he gradually got to know his sexual orientation.

But he revealed the support of his “incredible” family – wife of 27 years old Stephanie and their two children – convinced him to be open and honest about his feelings.
