Phillip Schofield drinks a gin and tonic while out for a run in the sun in ultimate lockdown workout

Phillip Schofield has given fans a peek at his very unique lockdown exercise routine, that includes drinking alcohol.

The 58 year old, who recently starred in a mental health video alongside his This Morning co-star Holly Willoughby, took to his Instagram Stories to share a hilarious clip of himself on a run outside.

In the shaky recording, the TV presenter could be seen wearing a striped pale green T-shirt as he ran through what appeared to be a park in the sunshine.

He then revealed a tall glass of gin and tonic in his hand, which included several ice cubes and a slice of lemon.

"The trouble is, it's always extremely hard to run and not spill your gin and tonic," he told his 3.2million followers before taking a sip of his drink.

Phillip, who recently got a haircut from his wife Stephanie, added: "All fine, all fine. Love a bit of lockdown exercise. Cheers!"

It comes as the ITV star recently hit out at comments hinting at a romance between him and a friend, who he met for his first socially distanced walk earlier this month.

The Dancing On Ice presenter posted a photo of himself and his male family friend stood in a large field to mark his first socially distanced meet-up with someone outside his household since lockdown on his Instagram.

Phillip’s photo showed him wearing a black pair of sunglasses and a pale blue T-shirt while smiling at the camera.

Meanwhile, his friend could be seen standing behind him from a distance while smiling at the camera and wearing a pink shirt with jeans, a black jumper and trainers.

He wrote in the caption: "First socially distanced walk with a mate!

"Thank you @sischofe .. last person I had a drink with before the wheels fell off, first I’ve seen as we try to reattach them!" [sic]

Phillip’s photo received more than 82,000 likes from fans. While some explained that they had been doing the same thing, others were more interested in who the TV personality, who came out as gay last year, was with as they speculated that his friend was in fact a love interest.
