Phillip Schofield has said his head “is just as muddy” as it was before he came out.

Earlier this year the presenter revealed he was gay during an episode of ITV’s This Morning.

He told Fearne Cotton’s Happy Place podcast he is no clearer about his identity than he was before he made his sexuality public.

“I’m still learning what effects that has on my life and the life of those around me,” he said.

Schofield added: “Do I know who I am? No. I think if I’m honest, looking you right in the eye now, I’d say I’m still pretty confused.”

He said his “head’s just as muddy as it was before”.

The 58-year-old said he feels “no shame” and is “proud of who I am”.

He added: “I’m happy with who I am, I’m not happy with the damage it causes.”

Schofield has two daughters with his wife Steph.

He said he does not know “what my future is”.

“I know that I don’t want to hurt anyone any more than I’ve already hurt them, but I also know that we are, us four, the same but different, and we’re finding our way,” Schofield said.
