Phillip Schofield could have perfect new TV job despite thinking career is over

Phillip Schofield now talks about his career of over 30 years on TV as a thing of the past, after stepping down from his long-time position hosting This Morning last month.

But all may not be lost for the broadcaster, 61, as he could land a job at opinion-orientated news channel TalkTV to 'rebuild' his career when he is ready to, according to a PR expert.

The host resigned with 'immediate effect' from This Morning last month, amid reports of a feud between him and co-host Holly Willoughby. Following his resignation, Phillip then admitted to having an affair with a much younger male colleague while working at ITV, apologising for 'lying' to staff, friends and family.

In a tell-all BBC interview last week, the presenter admitted that he must now talk about his career in TV in the 'past tense' while stepping away from the limelight.

Now PR expert Andy Barr, CEO of 10 Yetis Digital, claims that this may not be the case – with TalkTV potentially the 'perfect place' for Phillip to rebuild his career.

"TalkTV could be the career rebuilding platform that Schofield needs right now, If the current media spotlight reveals no new allegations then this is entirely recoverable for him and TalkTV could be the perfect place for him to start again in a high-profile media environment," Andy told The Daily Star.

Andy added that this would need to be after a 'break' from the spotlight for Phillip's own mental health, which he admitted has deteriorated throughout this scandal.

A new platform, the British free-to-air show TalkTV launched in April 2022 and rivals GB News, which is popular for Eamonn Holmes' controversial breakfast show.

TalkTV's most prominent personality is Piers Morgan, who leapt to cut Phillip some slack recently. He argued: "argued: "Unless the young man comes out and contradicts Phillip Schofield’s version of events or somebody else comes out with new revelations, what else do people want?"

"Phillip Schofield is a broken guy, he’s not going to work on television again almost certainly. He’s lost everything in his life. I don’t know what more the baying mob on Twitter wants from Phillip Schofield that he hasn’t already lost?”

Phillip's former best friend and co-host Holly Willoughby returned to This Morning on June 5 following the scandal, with her ex-colleague stepping down while she was off for a half-term break.

Joined by stand-in Josie Gibson, the presenter addressed the drama with a heartfelt pre-prepared statement, where she appeared to be holding back tears while sharing how she was 'shaken' by Phillip's actions.
