ITV employees must disclose any personal relationships following the Schofield incident.
Earlier this year, Phillip Schofield left his role as a presenter on ITV's This Morning. It was later revealed that Schofield had admitted to a relationship with a much younger male colleague. Schofield described this relationship as ‘unwise but not illegal’. This led to ITV updating their policy on relationships between co-workers, which had been in place since last October. The document states that if a relationship exists between two colleagues, both parties must disclose it to the company at the earliest opportunity.

The departure of Schofield from This Morning sparked further allegations of a bullying culture on the show, with claims of a ‘toxic’ atmosphere. To address these allegations, ITV launched an external review in May which found that when rumours of a relationship between Schofield and an ITV employee first began circulating, the broadcaster had already investigated the matter.

Schofield's departure was also followed by his former co-star Holly Willoughby announcing that she would not be returning to the show. Willoughby expressed her gratitude for the loyal and supportive viewers in her statement.

The Agency has contacted ITV for comment on the matter. If any readers have a celebrity story, video, or pictures, they can reach out to The Agency entertainment team by emailing, calling, or visiting their Submit Stuff page.
