Lancashire born Phillip Schofield is a television fixture in England — and longtime co-host of weekday magazine show This Morning. Schofield began his TV career in New Zealand after his family moved downunder. He spent three years hosting 1980s music show Shazam!, and was a Radio Hauraki DJ. Then Schofield returned to England and began introducing children's programmes for the BBC. He has since presented many live shows, including Test the Nation, skating series Dancing on Ice and award-winning game show The Cube. For more than a decade, Schofield has presented exclusively for UK network ITV.
Rather like a classic car Phillip has aged well and is still in demand. His openness, affability and easy-going charm allows him to jump from the BBC to ITV with relative ease. Scottish newspaper The Daily Record, 25 February 2006
