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.

Popular TV presenter and well-loved household name, Phillip Schofield has been bringing sparkle to our screens for many years, hosting innumerable programmes such as 'This Morning' and 'Dancing on Ice'. His rich and vast presenting history means he would make a great awards host or conference facilitator.

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, Phillip 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 lifetime's 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 from Fistral Beach in his native Newquay, to a crowd of 25,000).

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. This was quickly followed by another West End success and World Premiere as the doctor in the acclaimed 'Dr Do-little'.

In recent years, Phillip hosted four series of 'Winning Lines' for the BBC and was a co-host of the flagship 'Test the Nation' for the channel. Since then, he has seen considerable success on ITV1's 'This Morning', winning the prestigous National Televison Award and a number of other 'public vote' awards. He currently hosts the show with Holly Willoughby.

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'. He also presented ITV1's Saturday night blockbuster Dancing On Ice with Holly Willoughby; was given the honour of hosting the 2007 Royal Variety Performance; hosted a Christmas special, Star Traders for ITV1; presented Mr and Mrs with Fern Britton; hosted The British Soap Awards; and anchored ITV1's coverage of the Nelson Mandela 90th Birthday Concert.
