Phillip Schofield dropped as Prince's Trust ambassador

The Prince's Trust has dropped Phillip Schofield as an ambassador after he admitted he had an affair with a young male colleague and lied to cover it up.

The charity, founded by the King, said it was "no longer appropriate" for it to work with the presenter.

Schofield, issued a statement last Friday about the relationship and announced he was leaving ITV.

It came a week after he quit his role at ITV's This Morning after reports of a rift with co-star Holly Willoughby.

A Prince's Trust spokesperson said: "In light of Phillip's recent admissions, we have agreed with him that it is no longer appropriate to work together."

In a statement last Friday, Schofield apologised for lying repeatedly to hide the relationship with the male employee, calling it "unwise but not illegal".
