In the first picture, Philip said that his loved ones surprised him with their favorite flower to mark a career milestone.

He wrote: “40 sunflowers just arrived at work from Steph and my girls to celebrate my TV anniversary! My favorite flower, thank you xx.”

The host then shared a short video of the bouquet shown in the finale of him and Holly Willoughby of This Morning on Tuesday.

Writing over the clip, he said, “Put my flowers on the telly.”

Phillip is the father of Molly, 29, and Ruby, 26, with his wife, Stephanie. The couple got married in 1993.

In February 2020, Philip came out as gay with the full support of his wife and family.

After he came out, Steph said she “loves him now more than I ever have” and the couple has no plans to divorce.

Earlier this week Philippe fought back tears as his ITV colleagues honored his 40th birthday on television.

The 59-year-old actor got the surprise of his life this morning when Lorraine Kelly walked into his dressing room and announced that they were dedicating their show to him.


Then, over the years, he was showered with eulogies from his co-stars, including Holly Willoughby, who joined him on the show.

The introduction of duets by Richard Madley and Judy Finnigan, as well as Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly, also helped mark the milestone.

In one segment, Holly, 41, recalled how Schofield specifically asked her to join him as co-host of This Morning.

She said, “I don’t know why you were so convinced of this and I thank you every day because I know that you were really on your own with this school of thought and it really had to do with that you supported it that I got this job.

“Without a doubt, without you, I would never have made it this morning.

“And I came to this show, I was green and new. I knew a little about TV because I worked on Saturday mornings so I knew all the nuts and bolts.

“But this morning is a huge, grown-up, important TV show, and I just sat there like a sponge and soaked it all up and learned everything.”

Holly described her longtime co-host as “so generous, so kind, so patient” and said he “was willing to just get me through it” before adding, “He’s still doing it now.”

Fern Britton, who presented This Morning for ten years until 2009, was also among those on the show and wished Schofield “a very happy future” before adding, “Congratulations and keep up the good work.”

Actresses Judi Dench and Miriam Margoles also shared video messages for him.

But Eamonn Holmes and his wife Ruth Langsford were noticeably absent after Eamonn called him “passive-aggressive” in a weekend interview.

Eamonn, 62, a Belfast native, and his wife have been replaced by Alison Hammond and Dermott O’Leary after 14 years of hosting This Morning on Fridays and holidays.
