Phillip Schofield reveals he was NAKED when he got down on one knee to propose to his wife

The 53-year-old revealed the rather intimate detials of his marriage proposal

THIS Morning presenter Phillip Schofield has revealed that he was completely naked when he proposed to his wife Stephanie Lowe.

The presenter made the revelation about leaping out of bed starkers to pop the question while discussing if romance is dead on today’s show with co-host Holly Willoughby.

He said: “I proposed to Steph with an advent calendar. You could put your own thing into each little individual boxes.


“So every day she would open it up and I would put in bath soaps and smellies, just cheapy things for every day.

“And then on the given day that I had chosen, I put the engagement ring in. She opened it up and I hopped out of bed starkers and got down on one knee.”

A shocked Holly exclaimed: “Oh my god, how could she refuse?”

Looking a bit embarrassed Phil said “how romantic was that?”. He then joked that she had said she preferred the bath salts.

Phil married Steph – a BBC production assistant, in 1993. They have two daughters Ruby and Molly.


During today's show Phil and Holly read out various other romantic stories after appealing for viewers to send them in.

One of the call ins came from Natalie King – the lucky lady who was invited on stage last night by Adele after her now-fiance proposed during the show.

Natalie, who describes Adele as her idol, said that after her boyfriend Johnny popped the question it was “crazyness. Phones in my face, people hugging me.”

The segment followed the story of newlyeds Amelia and Brett Irwin, who made the news after confirming their romance with eight different wedding celebrations in different countries.
