PHILLIP Schofield has revealed he’s written an explosive tell-all book after coming out as gay.
The 58-year-old named the autobiography Life’s What You Make It and says it was “deeply emotional” to write.
He was reportedly offered £1.5million to publish his life experiences and used his spare time in lockdown to get the job done.
The This Morning presenter said his memoir will be released in October – eight months after he bravely confessed his sexuality.
“After being asked many times, and after many years of wanting to, I have written my autobiography,” said Phillip.
“I wrote the first line of the book, in my head, when I was about 14. It took me until 2017 for me to finally write the first chapter and then I stopped because the time wasn’t right.
“It has certainly been something of a work in progress! Over the years I have been making notes of the stories and events of my life that I thought would tell my story.
“Finally, in Lockdown, I knew that all the pieces of the jigsaw had been put into place and I was ready to write – that and a new discovery… lots of free time! It has been a fascinating experience, both immense fun and deeply emotional.
“Finally, after all these years, I’m happy it’s gone from my head, to the page. I’ve been honest and I’ve been me.”
Phillip came out as gay in a statement read out by his best friend and telly co-host Holly Willoughby on This Morning in February.
The ITV star admitted he knew he was gay when he got married 27 years ago.
In an interview with The Sun on Sunday he Dancing on Ice host Phil bravely revealed struggling with suicidal thoughts and to having therapy as he tried to put the issue to the back of his mind.
Loyal wife Steph said: “We have had to face the most emotionally painful time in our 27 years of marriage.”
The couple have continued to live together with Steph vowing to stand by him.
