Have they commented on the affair?
Neither of Phillip’s daughters has commented on his affair with the much younger This Morning showrunner.
The two are known to be private and rarely make public statements.
YMU’s decision to drop Phillip has put his daughter Molly in a difficult position as a senior talent manager working for the company.
Phillip previously shared Molly had been his manager and had approved his social media posts before sharing.
The CEO of YMU Group, Mary Bekhait, released in a statement: ‘We have learned important new information about our client Phillip Schofield: These facts contradicted what Phillip had previously told YMU, as well as the external advisors we had brought in to support him. As a result, on Thursday we agreed to part company with Phillip, with immediate effect.’
It is not yet confirmed if Molly will follow her father’s departure or maintain her position at the entertainment company.
