Phillip Schofield has revealed he is still "confused" about his identity since coming out as gay in February this year.

The 58 year old opened up about how he's feeling months after his shock revelation on This Morning while chatting to Fearne Cotton on her Happy Place podcast.

As Fearne, 39, asked her guest if he believes he truly knows himself now, the TV show host explained that actually his "head is just as muddy" as it was before he made his confession on live air.

"That's an interesting question because I feel that as I sit here now, I probably know less of who I am than I did before," he said.

Phillip, who recently said he regrets turning off his phone during This Morning as friends thought he'd "done something stupid", went on to explain that while he's happy with his decision, he hasn't enjoyed seeing the negative impact it's had on those around him.

"My life in my head, there's no question, I have pressed a new button as I say and I am still learning what that means, I'm still learning what effects that has on my life and the lives of those around me.

"All I care about are the people that I love. All I care about is Stephanie and the girls. And beyond that the family."

Going back to the original question, he continued: "But do I know who I am now? No, I think, if I'm honest, looking you right in the eye now I'm still pretty confused.

"I mean it's clearer, because I've been very honest about it so that I know about myself – well I've known that for a bit of time. However, no, I don't think I do. I think probably my head is just as muddy as it was before.

"Everyone say you know, 'You're gonna know, you're gonna live your best life.' But I don't know what that means, I thought I was."

Despite this, Phillip, who recently said co-host Holly Willoughby "held him together" in the lead up to him coming out, explained he feels "no shame" and is "proud of who I am" before admitting he doesn't know "what my future is".

He added: "I know that I don't want to hurt anyone any more than I've already hurt them, but I also know that we are, us four, the same but different, and we're finding our way."
