Dads up and down the country are celebrating Father's Day today, and Phillip Schofield joined them in the celebrations with his own sweet post on Instagram. The 58-year-old father-of-two took to social media to show off the gifts he'd received from his beloved family. The ITV star showed off three Father's Day cards as he sipped on a much-deserved cup of tea, and made sure to add a big red heart to show his appreciation.
