Oh Good Grief!

Section:

Matthew Steeples suggests the fuss about Phillip Schofield “coming out” as gay is nothing but a storm in a teacup

This week, “the silver soufflé” that is Phillip Schofield – someone who is little other than a frothy presenter of trivial daytime telly – came out as gay. The reaction? Acres of column inches analysing this utterly lightweight yet totally overpaid man’s relationship with his wife, interviews galore and tweets aplenty followed.

 

Frankly, anybody with half a brain would take the view of a Twitter user named @WhatsEuroPinion and respond: “The press are obsessed with Phillip Schofield saying he is gay. Who cares, seriously, gay, hetro,  trans, it’s all OK, but it is NOT news.” Going further, as the Mirror rightly pointed out, interest in this whole matter is nothing but “bizarre.” They ludicrously were trashed for being “cruel.”

 

To quote Schofield himself, one could say: “Oh good grief!” but remember this: There are more important things in the world to consider and instead of blabbering on about this trifling matter, perhaps the media could instead focus on asking about the missing Russia report and the matter of what went on between Boris Johnson and Jennifer Arcuri.

  1. I agree, what a load of fuss about nothing, so what if he is gay, everybody has known for years anyway. Your sexuality is nobody’s business but your own, end of.

  2. I have no real feelings about Phillip Schofield either way. But as I told you on Twitter, I do find it bizarre that so many people are praising him for this announcement – calling him “incredibly brave” among other accolades.

    If you look up the interview that he did with Paul Burrell a few years ago, the tone could not have been more different. Nobody called Burrell brave for coming out. In fact, Burrell got quite an unsympathetic interrogation from Holly and Phil – asking if he’d been honest with his wife when he married her and how he felt about the way he’d treated her.

    Secondly, I do think there’s more to this story than has been revealed. I find it very strange that someone who is almost 60 and has been married for 27 years only now decides that he has been struggling with his sexuality. Took a very long time for it to suddenly become an unbearable burden for him.

    I suspect that his big announcement may have been to preempt an exposé in the press. Can’t say whether certain rumours circulating on Twitter are true – but they wouldn’t really surprise me.

  3. The person I felt sorry for was his poor betrayed wife, not a word of sympathy for her from all those luvvies falling over themselves to gush over him.
