This Morning presenter Phillip Schofield looked as though he had a busy Friday as he was pictured inspecting the damage a tree had done to his neighbour's car.

The star headed out of his new £2 million bachelor pad, which he has moved into after leaving the family home he shared with his wife, to assist his neighbour after a tree fell on their vehicle.

The 58 year old star was seen in a white t-shirt and shorts as he went outside to check out what was happening.

The dad-of-two was seen standing and chatting to a few people from the neighbourhood as they gathered to cast an eye over the car which had its windscreen smashed by a fallen tree.

Phillip seemed to grimace as he looked at the car, before chatting amicably to his new neighbours.

Discussing Phillip’s recent move to the Chiswick neighbourhood, which is close to ITV colleague Declan Donnelly’s abode, one person told MailOnline: “It’s caused quite a stir since he’s moved in and got people very excited. He seems like a very nice man and quite normal. You see him walking or cycling mainly and he smiles every time he goes past."

Another neighbour added: "There’s quite a few famous people already living around here so Phillip Schofield moving in is not a big deal.

"A lot of people have been talking about it, but nobody bothers him. He’s a lovely bloke and I’m sure he’ll enjoy living in our community.”

Phillip was snapped leaving his apparent new home on a bicycle recently alongside Holly Willoughby, 39, in photographs obtained by Mail Online.

The star has also been spotted frequenting pubs on the banks of the River Thames, which lies a short distance from his home.

Phillip and wife Stephanie were recently reported to have been planning to build a new second home at their family home in Oxfordshire.

Speaking of the plans, a source told The Sun Online: “Phillip and Steph are getting on really well and are in no rush to make any big decisions.

“This annex can be used by any member of the family at any time — and is a great investment long-term, adding value to the property.”

It was later revealed that Phillip is set to divorce his wife Stephanie.

Speaking to The Sun, an insider claimed: “Phillip and Steph have had a lot of hard, painful conversations over the past ten months but remain as tight and devoted to one another as ever.

“She has been so supportive, and he won't skip off into the sunset now and abandon her. At the same time, he has no desire to become embroiled in a bitter and costly divorce battle.”

They continued: “Phillip is in no hurry to meet someone new, but obviously the D-word [divorce] has now been mooted, albeit in very loose and casual terms.

Phillip and Stephanie married in 1993 and share two grown-up children, Molly and Ruby, together.
