Phillip Schofield spends ‘£2million on bachelor pad’ near to Holly Willoughby

This Morning star Phillip Schofield is claimed to have purchased a £2million bachelor house in west London.

According to reports, the 58-year-old has been spotted by neighbours enjoying bike rides with his co-star and close chum Holly Willoughby already, who is thought to live near by.

His new pad which is closely situated to the River Thames, is believed to be a large semi-detached house that comes with a hefty price tag attached.

It seems Philip is surrounding himself by other TV celebrities such as his on-screen partner in crime and the likes of Declan Donnelly who is also thought to live in the surrounding area too.

Neighbours who had spotted the TV duo together, didn't appear to be overly excited that another famous face would now reside in their community.

Addressing Phil's plush £2million home, residents told the Mail Online: "There's quite a few famous people already living around here so Phillip Schofield moving in is not a big deal.

"A lot of people have been talking about it, but nobody bothers him.

"He's a lovely bloke and I'm sure he'll enjoy living in our community."

The news of his lavish residency comes soon after claims he and wife Stephanie Lowe had engaged in divorce conversations.

It is said that Steph will look to share her husbands £9million fortune, providing she continues to remain loyal and discreet about their private affairs.

Back in February, Philip shocked the nation when he revealed in a heartfelt interview on This Morning – conducted by best pal Holly, 39 – that he was gay.

Although, he and his wife Stephanie had continued to live together throughout lockdown and have remained amicable throughout it is believed the couple are now discussing divorce.

The couple who were married for 27 years, are trying to work through everything fairly and to ensure the process is as trouble-free as possible.

An insider revealed to The Sun Online: "Phillip and Steph have had a lot of hard, painful conversations over the past ten months but remain as tight and devoted to one another as ever.

"She has been so supportive, and he won't skip off into the sunset now and abandon her.

"At the same time, he has no desire to become embroiled in a bitter and costly divorce battle.

"Phillip is in no hurry to meet someone new, but obviously the D word has now been mooted, albeit in very loose and casual terms. His earning power is at an all-time high, and Steph is entitled to half.

"He is not disputing this — all he wants in return is her ongoing loyalty . . . and discretion.

"His family is his No1 priority and that will never change."

The Daily Star Online has reached out to Philip's representatives for comment.
