Phillip Schofield has been dropped by the Prince’s Trust in the wake of his affair scandal at ITV.
A spokesperson from the King’s charity told The Telegraph that it was mutually agreed it was “no longer appropriate to work together” following Schofield’s admission he had an affair with a younger employee as early as 2020.
The ex-This Morning presenter was formerly an ambassador for the charity but had not attended an event since 2019.
“In light of Phillip’s recent admissions, we have agreed with him that it is no longer appropriate to work together,” a Prince’s Trust spokesperson said.
It comes after any mention of his ambassadorship was removed from the presenter’s own website as well as from The Prince’s Trust website.
Previously, the 61-year-old’s “about” page on his website had detailed his work for the organisation, which was founded by King Charles in 1976 to help young disadvantaged people in the UK.
The page read: “Outside of work, Phillip is an ambassador for the charity The Prince’s Trust, dedicating time to further the work of supporting vulnerable young people in the UK.”
Since it was founded by the monarch in 1976, the Prince’s Trust has helped more than one million young people by providing them with business grants, education and training.
