Phillip Schofield Biography

Schofield was born in the Lancashire town of Oldham. He grew up and was educated in Newquay, Cornwall. When he was 15, his first foray into media was a Sunday show on Hospital Radio Plymouth. After many years of writing letters to the BBC, at 17 he took up the position of bookings clerk for BBC Radio at Broadcasting House in London, where he was, at the time, the youngest employee. Aged 19, he moved with his family to New Zealand, where he made his television debut presenting the children’s music programme Shazam! on 23 February 1982. He also spent two years working for the Auckland-based station Radio Hauraki. In 1985, Schofield returned to England, where he became the first in-vision continuity presenter for Children’s BBC on weekdays for two years from September 1985. He left the “Broom Cupboard” to present Going Live! on Saturday mornings between September 1987 and April 1993. He then moved to adult-oriented TV with various documentaries and holiday programmes for ITV. From 1994 to 1997, Schofield presented Talking Telephone Numbers for five series, and the National Lottery Winning Lines programme for BBC One between June 2001 and October 2004.

During the run of the ITV reality show I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, Schofield co-hosted the new ITV1 spin-off series I’m a Celebrity, Get Me out of Here! Exclusive with Sheree Murphy. He has also presented two series of Have I Been Here Before?, a programme in which a celebrity attempts to use regression to get in touch with a previous life. On 23 February 2007, Schofield celebrated his 25th anniversary as a television presenter. A surprise feature on This Morning showed highlights of his career, along with tributes from his parents, Pat and Brian; wife since 1993, Stephanie (Lowe); daughters Ruby and Molly; and brother, Tim. At the conclusion of the tribute, Gordon the Gopher, on the beach at his “retirement clinic” in Hawaii, was blown up via a detonator manned by Fern Britton. On 1 May 2008 Schofield’s father, Brian, died after a long-standing heart condition, which led to Schofield taking a break from presenting This Morning. John Barrowman stood in for him until his return. In April 2008, Phillip and his colleague, Fern Britton, presented a revival of the ITV show Mr and Mrs. A celebrity version, it aired as a six-part series on Saturday nights. Following successful ratings, a second series was commissioned and aired in Spring 2009. Schofield now presents the Saturday night show, The Cube, where contestants are given difficult and brain-straining tests. They face the ‘Cube’ to win up to £250,000.
