English presenter Phillip Schofield who came out as gay blushes and flirts with Rev Richard Coles while chatting about being gay

They chatted about being middle age and gay,then phillip was asked out. Richard, also 58, asked: ‘If you’re looking for a bit of company Phillip? Broadcaster, gay, in his middle years. Drink? Dinner?’ The TV presenter said his This Morning co-host’s ‘sensible and balanced’ demeanour helped him navigate the life-changing experience.
Breaking down in tears on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio on Friday, he said: ‘Holly has been astonishing. Literally, the best mate… she’s serene and calming and sensible and balanced.’  
Emotional: Philip made the decision to come out earlier this year in an emotional Instagram statement, before being interviewed by Holly moments later (pictured at the time)
The This Morning star said his mum knew something was up when he travelled down to Cornwall to see her. 
He said: ‘I have floaters in my eyes which drive me crazy. I don’t talk about them very much… it’s like a filthy bathroom window drifting in front of my vision…
‘So we had our fish and chips and I said, “mum, I have something to tell you” and she said, “okay, alright” and I said “I’m gay”. 
‘And she went: ‘oh thank god, I thought you were going blind’!’
