Phil Schofield made his mark as an actor in both pantomime and West End productions of Joseph and The Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, frequently appearing as Joseph himself in both productions. Additionally, he presented various TV programs including This Morning and 5 Gold Rings.

Schofield was forced to admit having an affair with one of her colleagues at This Morning when the man, then 15, sought her assistance in finding work and asked for her help finding employment opportunities for himself. Schofield helped the individual secure employment.

Born in Oldham

Phillip Schofield was born April 1st 1962 in Oldham, England and currently hosts several shows on ITV. He is best known as co-host of lifestyle show This Morning since 2002; other popular programs he presents include Dancing on Ice and British Soap Awards as well as musical theatre (Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat).

At 19, he moved to New Zealand, while maintaining connections to Cornwall where his mother Pat still resides. Since then he has appeared as a celebrity guest on TVNZ and presented youth music programme Shazam! as well as attended Trenance Infant School and Newquay Tretherras School before making his media debut with Hospital Radio Plymouth’s Sunday show when he was 15.

Schofield previously explained in a statement that they met when both were teenagers and asked him for assistance with entering television production. Although unwise and unlawful in nature, their relationship continued until this latest development occurred.

Schofield enjoys swimming and walking through the countryside with his family in his free time, watching movies and football matches, eating spaghetti Bolognese for lunch and collecting books and pens in his leisure time.

Raised in Newquay

Philip Schofield grew up in Newquay, Cornwall before starting his television presenting career. Now aged 61 years, he has hosted popular programs such as Dancing on Ice and This Morning over more than 12 years – as well as two series of Have I Been Here Before, an interesting daytime show which attempts to reconnect celebrities with past lives.

His latest controversy began when he admitted to engaging in an affair with one of his younger colleagues at ITV and has since resigned, drawing fire from both co-host Holly Willoughby as well as some viewers of ITV, accusing him of lying to her about it.

Schofield had an affair with an ITV production assistant he has not identified. They first met when he was 15 and attended a drama school event, later starting communicating online, which Schofield described as being completely innocent over a long period of time – talking about jobs, careers and more.

But they quickly began dating during Schofield’s final months on This Morning. They could often be seen together and in 2018, the young man stood alongside Schofield when This Morning won at the National Television Awards.

Mother Pat Schofield

Phillip Schofield, 61, made headlines recently when it emerged he was keeping watch at his ailing mother Pat’s bedside during her hospitalisation for unknown illness. According to reports he visited Pat at her Newquay, Cornwall home while she received care.

Pat and Phil may have moved to Cornwall when they were younger after their parents discovered how magical it was during a holiday visit. Since then, their son has often expressed his affection for Cornwall in public speeches and published his autobiography detailing why it was such an incredible place for him.

Phillip recently came forward and admitted he was involved in an affair with one of his younger staff members on This Morning, calling it ‘unwise but not illegal”. Furthermore, he revealed he lied to ITV and his agents at YMU about this relationship.

ITV have been put under pressure to explain how such an affair with one of their young staffers went undetected for so long, though they admit having investigated such reports as early as 2020.

However, they dismissed these claims as not being appropriate, leaving Esther McVey to wonder how they could justify choosing bankable stars over doing what is right. Furthermore, they received criticism for failing to offer a public apology to those involved in the scandal.

Father Brian Schofield

Philip Schofield’s father passed away in 2008 due to heart complications at 72. Known for his long and distinguished television career that began with Going Live and Children’s BBC for children programming and moving onto adult-orientated shows such as Schofield’s Quest and TV Gold for adults; as well as hosting numerous talk shows such as One in a Million and Talking Telephone Numbers.

Recently, he has appeared on various daytime television programs such as This Morning and Holly Willoughby’s Good Morning Britain; since 2002 he has been one of the main presenters on that latter show. Additionally, he has hosted news and current affairs programs.

Recent allegations about Schofield include allegations that he engaged in grooming and an affair with one of his younger colleagues, whom Variety will not name out of respect for their privacy. Their lawyers both claim the relationship was mutual and consensual.

Schofield, 61, announced his decision to leave This Morning following the ongoing controversy and it was received with shock and sadness by viewers and staff alike. According to reports, BBC has offered Schofield another comfortable seat but it remains unknown if he will accept. He denies any wrongdoing but remains an immensely popular TV figure who may return behind the mic shortly.
