  • From Going Live onwards!

    I absolutly loved Phillip Schofield when I was about 12! I watched him on the Broom Cupboard with Gordon the Gopher moving to Going Live with Sarah Greene. He is a natural talent when it comes to live television. Always there with a joke if something happens. Unfortunatly I moved to Australia so I didnt get to see him play Joseph much in Jospeh and the amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat but he did get amazing reviews after he took over from Jason Donovan. From then on he moved around finally settling on daytime television with This Morning. Thankfully he stopped dyeing his hair and has gone nice a grey which really does suit him! Have to say I still do have a bit of a crush on him now and Im 27!!!moreless
