Holly Willoughby Enjoying Beach Day in Portugal Amid Phillip Schofield’s Drama

Holly Willoughby and her family have left the UK because her co-star Phillip Schofield was caught cheating on his wife.

The TV host had been out of sight since the Schofield scandal, but on Thursday, she was spotted on the beach in Portugal, wearing a swimsuit and hotpants and enjoying the sun.

The host of “This Morning” was pictured in a black costume with her sister and three kids. It comes after her statement that her former co-star and best friend Phillip “lied to her” about his affair with a much younger man.

Earlier that same day, it was reported that Holly had left the country and gone to Portugal to stay in her £8 million vacation home while taking a break from “This Morning.”

Last night, she was seen eating outside at the restaurant with her parents, her sister Kelly, and three of her children under a roof that looked like a tent.

Holly, who is 42 years old, said last week, “It’s taken time to process yesterday’s news. When reports of this relationship first surfaced, I asked Phil directly if this was true and was told it was not. It’s been very hurtful to find out this was a lie.”

Schofield and Holly co-hosted This Morning for 14 years. Last week, Schofield apologized for lying in a statement, but he didn’t name Holly. Instead, he said, “I did have a consensual on-off relationship with a younger male colleague.”

“That relationship was unwise but not illegal. It is now over. When I chose to come out, I did so entirely for my own well-being. Nobody ‘forced’ me out. In an effort to protect my ex-colleague, I haven’t been truthful about the relationship.”
