Phillip Schofield has finally braved a home haircut – courtesy of his wife Stephanie.

The This Morning presenter has been moaning about needing a trim for weeks and even co-presenter Holly Willoughby has offered to cut his hair for him.

Schofield, 58, has finally bitten the bullet, seven weeks in to the coronavirus lockdown, following the announcement the hospitality sector – including hairdressers – would not return to work before 4 July.

The TV presenter wrote on his Instagram stories: “July?! Sod that!”

He then shared a video of himself and his wife of 27 years consulting over Facetime with celebrity hairstylist Lino Carbosiero on how best to cut his hair.

Schofield looks nervous as Stephanie laughs “Not the sharpest of scissors.”

He quips: “Do you want to get the bread knife out?!”

But admiring the results afterwards he says: “That is a quality quarantine cut! Nicely done, very good, thank you. How much do I owe you?"

He announced to his 3.1 million followers on Instagram at the time: “With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.”

Schofield added: "My inner conflict contrasts with an outside world that has changed so very much for the better. Today, quite rightly, being gay is a reason to celebrate and be proud. Yes, I am feeling pain and confusion, but that comes only from the hurt that I am causing to my family.”

He denied he had been pressurised into coming out publicly and was flooded with messages of support from fans and fellow celebrities.
