PHILIP Schofield has a smoking hot night out – as he puffs on a cigarette after a meal with pals.
Telly favourite Phil, 58, was spotted smoking and chatting to friends outside a Chinese eaterie in Richmond, south-west London.
A source who spotted the This Morning host – previously seen using vaping machines – said: “Phil looked happy and relaxed – like he was having a whale of a time.
“He was outside for most of the evening and was smoking and chatting and laughing with various friends.
“It was good to see him letting his hair down after what he has been through – and to see him letting off steam.”
The Dad of two, who has now separated from wife Stephanie, said he became “increasingly aware” he was gay in the past five years.
In the book, he wrote of his meltdowns: “It was the first time my issues spilled over into work.
