Send Push

ITV have said they are 'deeply disappointed' by Phillip Schofield's "admissions of deceit" after he admitted to having an affair with a younger male ITV colleague.

The broadcaster released the statement and accepted the 61-year-old presenter's resignation with immediate affect after he apologised in a statement.

An ITV spokesperson told the Mirror: "We are deeply disappointed by the admissions of deceit made tonight by Phillip Schofield.

"The relationships we have with those we work with are based on trust. Philip made assurances to us which he now acknowledges were untrue and we feel badly let down.

"We accept his resignation from ITV and therefore can confirm that he will not be appearing on ITV as had previously been stated."

It comes after Phillip admitted to having an affair and "misleading" the press and his lawyers when the story was due to come out earlier this week.
