Miriam Margolyes is showing a soft corner for Phillip Schofield as she believes the public response to his scandal was "venomous".

The former This Morning presenter said he is "utterly broken" and feels “embarrassed and ashamed” about his affair with a younger male colleague when news broke back in May.

The 61-year-old resigned from ITV after admitting to an "unwise but not illegal relationship" with a man.

Speaking out in a new interview, Miriam Margolyes, 82, blamed the public's response on cancel culture.

She told Mail Online she believed the public's reaction to Phillip's affair with a younger colleague was "too quick, too venomous, too damaging".

"I think cancel culture is rubbish. People will probably want to cancel me, but they haven’t so far," Miriam added to the same publication.
