Eamonn told Dan that he and his wife Ruth Langsford were close to Phil's former lover, and that they "looked after him".
He described the unnamed man as "a lovely fella, really good talented fella", however, added that he did not tell them about his relationship with Phillip.

When Dan asked Eamonn whether he was still in touch with the man, and how he is doing now, the presenter said that while he is no longer in contact with him, Ruth is.
He added: "I think life's tough for him".
Speaking about Phillip in general, Eamonn brutally said: "My response is he's either deluded or he's lying, and he has admitted he tells lies and he tells a lot of lies.
"...And in life, I've always had this belief that a lie unchallenged becomes the truth. So, although I don't want to stand up to Schofield constantly pointing out where he's lying, I feel I have to.
"I often say this to Ruth, maybe he believes all this stuff, maybe he did not see what went on actually because there's something wrong with him. But he is the chief narcissist, he is the complete and utter dyed-in-the-wool narcissist, everything is about him."
Over the weekend, Phillip released a follow-up statement regarding accusations of 'toxicity' at This Morning.
It read: "Now I no longer work on @thismorning I am free to say this. I hope you have noticed that it’s the same handful of people with a grudge against me or the show who seem to have the loudest voice.
“This morning IS the best show to work on, with the best people. In all the years I worked there there was no toxicity.
“You can listen to those persistently loud voices if you like. But the thousands of guests over the years, thousands of staff and crew, hundreds of presenters and contributors all know, it IS a family of wonderful, talented, kind, hard working people.”
Responding to this statement directly on Twitter over the weekend, Eamonn wrote: "Schofield has just put out a delusional statement. Like Holly he puts it on Insta Stories so if it goes wrong there is no record after 24 hrs [sic].
"I'm reluctant to give the liar any more publicity but believe me Pip if u r looking for a fight, u have picked on the wrong person! [sic]."
