    Gay! Really, he didn’t look very happy whenI saw him on the news, frankly hardly a top news story, nothing much else happening in the world?

    Same as me.

    But, I did watch that video of Freddy Mercury in the 80s wearing high heels and a short leather skirt singing ‘’I want to break free’’, and that didn’t click.

    Don't take my silence for agreement. I've just realised you're too stupid to argue with.

    I just feel the story is more “bloke struggles with something” than “bloke says he gay”.

    On the first one, I feel for you mate. On the second one, big deal, get a grip.

    Seriously, I don’t think anyone cares these days. It’s not the 70s or even 80s anymore. Gay is widely accepted. Do who or whatever makes you happy. Feel a bit for his wife really though but I’m sure financially she will be ok.

    I see him most days (work near the studio) and he has cut a somber figure for months. Something was clearly brewing and now we know

    Sad that in 2020 it’s headline news. Or a talking point. Not saying that to dismiss him but more than it’s sad that a celebrities sexual alignment is ... so important that it needs to be actually reported on.

    We have a long way to go evidently in terms of LGBTQ and how it’s perceived etc and I say that as someone who always thought that he was a bit of a luddite on this kind of thing! The amount of horrid, cringe inducing memes tell me that we do still have a looong way to go before it’s no longer an issue or joking point.

    It's a sign of just how frivolous and narcissistic our society has become when this guys sexual orientation should become 'news' to anyone but his mrs and family. Summat's fundamentally wrong.

    A persons sexuality is not something to be celebrated or criticised.

    I think the story is that at the age of 57, he's declared himself to be something different to the impression he has presented for decades, rather than a story about someone's sexual orientation per se.

    I wonder if its possible for someone to be completely hetro then become gay later in life, or vice versa?
    I didn't like sweet peppers as a child now I love them, so why can't sexuality work that way?
    An interesting question.

    I have an old friend from Uni who got married, had kids, then in his mid 30’s came out as gay.

    I asked him if he was gay when he got married and he said absolutely not. He said his sexuality changed over time.

    I have to say I was, and remain skeptical of this, but he’s a good friend and has no reason to be anything other than honest.

    Regardless, I have never cared less what someone’s sexuality is, as I think there are far more important things that define a person rather than what gender they share a bed with.
    So clever my foot fell off.

    I am sure that if Philip Schofield was at the start of his career now, he’d have come out and that would be that. This is surely a case of something that he didn’t want to talk about back in the 80’s as a kids tv presenter (even denying it to himself sadly) - whereas now everyone just shrugs and says ‘whatever’. Frankly the whole issue of sexuality is so boring nowadays I’m amazed anyone cares (I mean that in a positive way)! - it does make me laugh when people say ‘I knew so and so was gay’ - I worked in the creative industry a few years ago and met plenty of very camp straight men and very ‘blokey’ gay men - as a straight man I discarded the concept of having a ‘gaydar’ years ago!

    Good on him, but I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone, or it shouldn’t be anyway.

    It’s a bit sad that he could t do it earlier, I don’t believe people become gay later in life, they’re always gay, they might not want to accept it, or changes in circumstances could make it more apparent to the individual, but they are born gay.

    However, Sam Smith wasn’t born a wanker, he’s become one quite recently (having announced that he came out as non-binary and changed his gender pronouns to they/them).

    I personally don't care where he puts his dick, good luck to the man, I hope he finds happiness. Not really sure why it needed to be made public though.

    Mike, you have hit the nail on the head. I have meaningful employment so haven't seen much of his TV work but I neither care nor feel it my business to have an opinion on whom he feels attracted to. Hope he finds happiness and that his family move forward together.

    I was saying to my GF there’s more to this.

    Did a bit of research earlier today about the fuss there was on this morning a while back.

    What’s the first story I find, an ‘odd’ one about a young lad working there as a runner and PA for schofield who mysteriously gets moved on to another show after some falling out. Quotes from other folk there like “it was strange as they were really close”

    This afternoon I’ve seen a couple of people break stories saying they were at it! Kid was 18 & schofield was 51 at time kid started there. Now maybe I’ve put 2&2 together and it could be 5 but already some low key internet news outlets are saying that he came out due to an impending story from the kid about the affair.

    Seems some of his colleagues weren’t too impressed with his behaviour over the runner issue at the time of the fall out and moving of the kid to ‘loose women’ as a runner there.


    I hope I’m wrong for his family’s sake but you can’t tell me he came out like that without sampling the skin flute and liking it.

    Sure we’ll find out the truth soon enough.

    Either way he’s in for a rough time, I saw in a YT vid from a radio station they’ve dug up that schofield started following the alleged ‘winky recipient’ since he was 15 on twitter, so already they’ve gotta get the pedo thing in. And they also talk about his special flat he’s had for years where he takes men.

    Next it’ll be his bbc days and a load of men suddenly realising that innocent encounter with a married hetro male wasn’t quite what they thought.

    No wonder he looks skinny AF! His head must be spinning with it all.

    Feel sorry for his kids to be honest. But I guess if they’re ‘modern’ kids they think we should all ride a rainbow on to whoever’s genitalia we see fit and be #proud

    My Mrs told me about this.

    No wonder Schofield outed himself to try and lessen the impact of a Kevin Spacey type scenario.

    Just read the story. Quite shocking if he's groomed a 15 year old and got the kid a job on the show when he was 18. Following a 15 year old on twitter is also very weird.

    I'd this is true he will be well and truly buggered if the young man makes a complaint and his self outing will be seen as a cynical attempt at deflection.

    It's brave and necessary. There's a whole world of stigma out there, so going public empowers others in a similar situation to make a choice which could unlock untold happiness.

    Plus, absolute kudos to his wife for being a legend and supportive.

    An emotional statement that explains a lot about the impact on him and his extended family. I can't imagine the turmoil you must go through living a lie like that, or the turmoil those close to him are going through now.

    Not if some of the posts before yours are true.

    And why is his wife a legend, never heard of her?

    I genuinely thought it was repost when I saw it on social media from a few years back - this is new news?

    Live and let live, just feel sorry for wife and kids - if he acted for this long just carryon - no?

    unless sort coming.....
