Following the group's debut performance of the song earlier this month, the This Morning presenter branded the track "shocking". He claimed that the UK was "screwed for another year" with the latest entry.
The boyband hit back at Schofield, admitting that the criticism had been "upsetting". "He's clearly not patriotic - or he wouldn't have gone on Twitter and been so objectionable," Duncan James said.
However, speaking to New magazine, Schofield said: "I was just being honest. I had no idea people were bothered about Eurovision.
"For me, I think Eurovision is a political farce, but I do watch it religiously every year. I laugh at the silly songs and I listen to Graham Norton – who I think is brilliant – taking the mickey."
He continued: "I like Blue very much. But I don't like their song! It's only my personal opinion."
Asked if he regrets sharing his view of the song, Schofield added: "No, I don't regret anything. I'm only being honest after all. I'm disappointed that people said I was being unpatriotic because there really isn't anybody more patriotic than me. It's just an honest view about a naff singing contest!"
The Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Germany in May.
