Then, in 1987, he moved on to the Children's BBC's new Saturday morning entertainment show 'Going Live' from 1987 to 1993.

He moved onto adult television from 1993 onwards, particularly at the ITV, where he has made many a programme, including 'Talking Telephone Numbers' in 1994, 'Television's Greatest Hits' from 1992 to 1995, and Schofield's SEa Odyssey' in 1999.

During the 1990's, he took to stage acting, and is best known for his role of Joseph, in ' Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat', taking over from the singer Jason Donovan.

But his career was really set in gold from 2002 onwards. Richard and Judy had left 'This Morning' and the ITV were looking for a replacement couple. Originally Fern Britton and John Leslie were chosen, however when Leslie's personal life took a dramatic downfall, Phillip stepped into his place and he and Fern remain there as popular as ever today.

From his success, he has gone on to many shows, including 'The National Lottory Winning Lines' (2001-) on BBC One, 'Test the Nation: The National IQ Test 2002' (2002) BBC One, 'Test the Nation:The National test 2002' (2002) BBC One, 'Test the Nation: The Relationship Test' (2003) BBC One, and at least seven other 'Test The Nation' programmes to 2005.
ITV continue to use his talent, allowing him to host a wide range of programming,including, 'Have I Been Here Before?', a show delving into the world of the reincarnator from 2004 onwards.

In his mid-40's, Phillip Schofield has produced so much in such a little amount of time, and will be expected to continue in the many decades that follow.
