The 21 year old TikTok star who claims he has shared messages with Phillip Schofield on Snapchat over the course of three years has urged people to "stop trying to make it something it isn't."

Oli O'Toole's video went viral on Wednesday after he claimed he had exchanged messages with the This Morning host since 2017.

However, he has now insisted that he is just "a fan" of the star and they have only messaged "about four times" since sparking conversation three years ago.

Writing to his 7,000 Instagram followers, Oli wrote: "This is so crazy to write but let me explain…

"Phillip Schofield replied to me (a fan) about 4 times in the space of 3 years… I posted it as part of a trend on Tiktok…

"[A newspaper] thought there was a story and now so does every other news outlet. I didn't see the story or tell a reporter."

He continued: "There is no story, depth or under lying thing. Stop trying to make it something it isnt.

"Thank you to everyone whos understood how random and pathetic it is, Love you x [sic]."

Oli added in a separate message: "So for everyone asking and trying to understand what's gone on — i've explained it all over on my tiktok [sic].

"And that's the last im going to mention it now. I've set the record straight and explained what when on in the videos [sic].

Oli shared the snippets of the chat in the TikTok video, blurring out the messages but showing Phillip's Snapchat username, PhillipSchofe. The clip showed the pair had exchanged messages in 2017 and 2020.
