Phillip Schofield, the well-known TV presenter, has been removed as an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.
The charity stated that it is no longer appropriate to continue working with him.
This decision comes after Schofield’s resignation from ITV and being dropped by his talent agency, YMU.
He admitted to having an affair with a younger male colleague, which he described as unwise but not illegal.
The affair took place while he was still married to his wife and before publicly coming out as gay.
The Prince’s Trust spokesperson expressed the organization’s agreement with Schofield that their collaboration should cease in light of his recent admissions.
Despite the decision, a group photo featuring Schofield and other celebrity ambassadors remains on the charity’s website, including the King.
The Prince’s Trust is a renowned charitable organization established in the United Kingdom in 1976 by Prince Charles, who was the Prince of Wales at the time.
The primary goal of the trust is to assist young people aged 11 to 30 who face various challenges in their lives.
Its focus lies in providing support in areas such as education, employment, and entrepreneurship.
The trust offers a wide range of programs and initiatives designed to help young individuals develop their skills, gain qualifications, find employment, and start their own businesses.
These programs encompass mentorship, training courses, work placements, and financial assistance.
Furthermore, the organization extends support to those who have experienced homelessness, mental health struggles, educational barriers, or other difficulties in their lives.
The aim is to empower young people and aid them in overcoming these challenges while fostering personal and professional growth.
Furthermore, it emphasizes the trust’s dedication to assisting those who have faced adversity and its goal of empowering young people.
Since Phillip Schofield’s resignation from This Morning, the popular daytime television show has faced allegations of toxicity.
Eamonn Holmes, a former presenter on the show, suggested that Holly Willoughby should also leave following Schofield’s departure.
Holmes predicted that Willoughby, who took an early holiday after Schofield’s exit, would not return to the show.
He speculated that her actions were motivated by brand protection, considering her advertising deals and lifestyle brand.
Singh, a former resident doctor on This Morning, has criticized the show’s culture, describing it as “toxic.”
He revealed that he had raised concerns about “bullying and discrimination” two years ago during his time there and felt like he was “managed out” for whistleblowing.
Additionally, it has been reported that TV executives, including those from ITV, may appear before MPs to discuss the Media Bill, with the issue of Phillip Schofield potentially being addressed.
Hosts and Contributor Speak Out in Support of the Show’s Positive Environment
When This Morning aired on Monday, hosts Dermot O’Leary and Alison Hammond, along with contributor Gyles Brandreth, defended the show against allegations of toxicity.
O’Leary expressed appreciation for the viewers’ support and emphasized the team’s love for producing the show.
Hammond affirmed their commitment to continuing their work.
Brandreth, in the studio to review news stories, also expressed contentment with the working environment, describing it as a happy place.
