This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield, 58, moved into a house in Chiswick back in September 2020 on his own, seven months after he came out as gay. It has now been reported by the Daily Mail online that the pair’s joint business has bought a £839,428 home.

On their business page, it states this amount was used for either a land or building.

The acquisition was made via Fistral Properties, the company both he and Steph jointly established in 2019.

The company is named after Fistral Beach in Cornwall, where he grew up and where his mother Pat currently lives.

The host is believed to be worth a staggering £8.5 million as a result of his business, television work and endorsement deals.

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Phillip for comment.

He also owns a six-bedroom house in Chiswick, believed to be worth £2 million.

Phillip and his wife’s long-term family home, where they raised their daughters Molly and Ruby, is in Oxfordshire.

The pair are believed to still be together despite the presenter coming out as gay last year.

In February 2020, he took to his Instagram page to make the announcement and later talked further about his admission on This Morning.

Phillip told co-star Holly Willoughby he and Steph had never had any secrets.

In a statement to The Sun, Steph acknowledged her husband’s announcement had been “difficult” for the family.

She added the pair had been “awestruck by the strength and love” of their two daughters.

“Even as they’ve been trying to make sense of it all themselves,” she added.

“Everyone should be proud to live their own truth.”

Speaking on BBC Radio 5 last year, Phillip said of his current marital situation: “We are a work in progress.

“I’ve been very honest about all of this and there’s no question, we have to pick our way through this daily as a family.”

In 2016, he revealed why the pair decided to marry in secret in what was a “quick” ceremony.

“We had to have a quick secret wedding because I was at the palladium at the time,” he explained.

Phillip was referring to the time he starred as Joseph in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat production.

The presenter and Steph met when she worked as a Production Assistant for the BBC.

After striking up a romance, they exchanged vows at Scotland’s Ackergill Tower in 1993.
