He had been writing letters to the BBC since the age of 10 and finally in 1979 the Corporation caved in, offering him the job of Outside Broadcast bookings clerk in BBC Broadcasting House, London.

Brought up and educated in Newquay, Cornwall, Phillip Schofield began his career on Hospital Radio Plymouth at the age of 15, making the weekly train trip to present his Sunday morning show on the station. He had been writing letters to the BBC since the age of 10 and finally in 1979 the Corporation caved in, offering him the job of Outside Broadcast bookings clerk in BBC Broadcasting House, London. (At the age of 17 he was the youngest person in the building).

Two years later, and hungry to get in front of a microphone he followed his parents on an adventure to New Zealand, where he began hosting TVNZ's weekly pop magazine show 'Shazam!' And his own show on Auckland's No1 station, Radio Hauraki. After four successful years and numerous other television and radio milestones, Phillip decided it was time to return to the UK.

In 1985 he became the BBC's first ever network, in-vision continuity announcer for Children's BBC. The 'Broom Cupboard' was invented and Gordon the Gopher was created. He then moved on to Saturday mornings, presenting six years of the award winning 'Going Live'. At the same time, Phillip also fulfilled a lifetimes ambition to become a Radio 1 DJ, presenting two weekly shows, the Breakfast Show and 3 summers of the iconic Radio 1 Roadshow (eventually getting the jewel in the crown and hosting the show.

Whilst continuing to create and present television programmes for both the BBC and ITV and having collected a number of coveted awards, Phillip astonished everyone by stepping into the role of Joseph at the London Palladium. After exceptional reviews and the discovery that he loved the stage, he quickly made the part his own. What should have been six weeks turned into two years at the world famous theatre and a further two years touring. This was quickly followed by another West End success and World Premiere as the doctor in the acclaimed 'Dr Dolittle'. After three years 'Talking to the Animals' and a spell as Jack the Ripper in the stage production of 'The Lodger' Phillip decided it was time to return his attention to television.

In recent years Phillip has hosted four series of 'Winning Lines' for the BBC and continues to co-host the flagship 'Test the Nation' for the channel. He has seen considerable success on ITV1's 'This Morning' with his partnership with Fern Britton winning the prestigous National Televison Award and a number of other 'public vote' awards. When 'This Morning' returns in September, Holly Willoughby will join Phillip on the 'This Morning' sofa.

His involvement with ITV is further enhanced by the 'Best Ever' series and an increasing amount of voice over work for major specials including 'Coronation Street' and 'Emmerdale'. In 2005 Phillip was voted 'All time Favourite Children's Presenter' by readers of the Radio Times. And in October 2006 he won the award again.

Phillip has presented ITV1’s Saturday night blockbuster Dancing On Ice with Holly Willoughby since 2006. This eight part, prime time Saturday night series saw the return of the great ice dancers Torvill & Dean who coached a celebrity team, including Kelly Holmes, David Seaman, Andi Peters, Tamara Beckworth, Bonnie Langford, Andrea McLean, John Barrowman, Sean Wilson, Gaynor Faye and Stefan Booth.

Phillip was given the honour of hosting the 2007 Royal Variety Performance and also hosted a Christmas special, Star Traders for ITV1. In 2007 Phillip celebrated 25 years in network broadcasting. Phillip has presented Mr and Mrs with Fern Britton since 2008. Phillip has also hosted the The British Soap Awards  since 2006. Phillip also anchored ITV1’s coverage of the Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday Concert.
