A TikToker who shared a series of messages reportedly between him and Phillip Schofield has now claimed he is nothing more than a fan.
Oli O’Toole, 21, hit headlines when he posted a video about his alleged three year friendship with the This Morning presenter, 59, but has since backtracked saying it was just four messages.
In a post on Instagram stories today, he clarified: “This is crazy to write but let me explain.
“Phillip Schofield replied to me (a fan) about four times in the space of three years. I posted it as part of a trend on TikTok.
“There is no story, depth or underlying thing. Stop trying to make it something it isn’t.”
He added: “Thank you to everyone who understood how random and pathetic it is. Love you.”
Oli originally posted the alleged correspondence between him and the This Morning host on viral video sharing app TikTok as he sang along to Miley Cyrus’ song Ordinary Girl.
His post, which has been liked over 28,000 times, appears to show messages starting in 2017, when he was 17, up until last year.
The screenshots from Snapchat show what Oli claims to be a series of conversations with Phil, who has a verified account on the app.
In one chat, the account which is reported to be Phillip's claims he had a big night out and that he goes on nights out with Holly Willoughby.
Another exchange sees the account that is apparently Phil wish Oli a happy birthday, as well as various other pleasantries between the pair.
Oli posted a picture of himself on TikTok and wrote: “Me when people find out me and Phillip Schofield Snapchat.”
He then mouthed the lyrics to the Miley Cyrus track: “Wish that they could see that underneath.
“I'm just an ordinary girl. Sometimes I'm lazy. I get bored, I get scared, I feel ignored, I feel happy, I get silly, I choke on my own words.”
He captioned the TikTok video: “I see the envy #foryou #funny #phillipschofield #snapchat #famous.”
Phil has three million Snapchat subscribers and his bio reads: “Don't send me pictures of blackness just to lift your score and don't send me pics of your fecking ceiling. And I love you but don't do streaks.”
The Sun Online has contacted Phillip’s rep for comment.
Phillip is one of the most famous faces on TV thanks to his early career in kids TV, followed by his long running stint hosting This Morning with Holly Willoughbhy.
He is dad to Molly, 28, and Ruby, 25, from his marriage to wife Stephanie Lowe, 57.
Last year he came out live on the morning TV show and moved out of his family home into a flat in London.
He posted on Instagram at the time: “You never know what's going on in someone's seemingly perfect life, what issues they are struggling with, or the state of their wellbeing – and so you won't know what has been consuming me for the last few years.
“With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters, I have been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.”
