He says in his statement that the fact that he is gay "has been consuming me for the last few years", yet he's been married for 27 years - are we to deduce he didn't know he was gay until a few years ago, or that if he was it didn't trouble him til a few years ago? He also says: "This is something that has caused many heart-breaking conversations at home" - if those were recent conversations, why did he not open up to his wife at least long before? How awful for her and their daughters. I can find little sympathy for the guy if he knew all along and never told his Mrs, though he appears to be full of self-pity. Must admit I never warmed to him, and like him even less now. Where do your sympathies lie?

Why would he want your sympathy? How is he self pitying?
Already two threads running on this subject Dee.
There are threads on this already, his wife may have known for a long while - he hasn't shared the minutiae of their conversations nor should he.
This thread seems to be particularly about Philips wife and pity.

I think that's fine.

I guess the weekend's tabloids will show whether he was forced into owning up...
being gay isn't really scandalous
He did children's tv...not sure he could have come out then.
As for any heart breaking conversations at home...we have no idea whether they were recent, or have taken place intermittently over many years. None of our business either. But people will still think the worst of him, won't they...?
I'd would guess his wife has known for a very long time.

Just because he's gay doesn't mean they aren't a happy couple. They're best mates and he adores her. Relationships are about more than sex.

if it's "none of our business", as pastafreak claims, why did Schof issue a public statement and go on live TV to tell the World?
That's been answered (by some of us who think we have some idea ) many times today.
My sympathies lie with him and I’ve no idea why people are being so spiteful and nasty about his decision to tell everyone. Maybe it’ll help other people to live the lives they want to live, not the lives they think they should. Must be horrible not being able to be your self.
Because people make it their business. Especially the gutter press.
I'm with you Dee ..

Mamalynne, I don't give a monkey's if there are other threads on this - I can start my own if I like. After alleged fallouts with Fern Britton, Amanda Holden, Noel Edmonds, Ruth Langsford and even Holly Willoughby, maybe Pip is on a popularity drive....
Maybe he fell out with them (if he actually did) because he’s had a lot on his mind?

His wife deserves all the praise he's giving her, I'm sure, but he's gonna be well advised to keep her onside if divorce is on the cards. Look what happened to Ant McPartlin? He McParted with one of the biggest payouts inhistory
Just goes to show what the gutter press is like. When he fell out with people it was probably a minor thing that gets sorted in a few days.
His wife is obviously a wonderful person, as are his daughters and he makes that crystal clear - thank goodness they are surrounded by loving family and friends.
Maybe they are genuinely really good friends and he is not keeping her on side. Why are some people so catty about others?
