As the pugnacious prat returns to the screens, Matthew Steeples is amazed he finds himself suggesting Nadine Dorries MP surprisingly was bang on the nail in slaughtering “rather up himself” Phillip Schofield
Phillip Schofield returned to presenting ITV1’s This Morning yesterday and with this came reminder of how utterly dislikable this dual British and New Zealand citizen truly is.
“I wanted to say that it is really lovely to be back. I have missed the show, everyone here, and also to you [the viewers] and I wanted to say thank you for all your kind messages and support, which were really appreciated, so thank you very much indeed. On with the show.”
Schofield – who most curiously “doesn’t tweet anymore of check my @’s sorry, thanks for all the fun originally though” – previously issued a statement through his lawyer after his brother’s conviction on 3rd April 2023 at Exeter Crown Court.
The self-centred and ever smug self-preservation focused presenter’s prepared piece read:
“My overwhelming concern is and has always been for the wellbeing of the victim and his family. I hope that their privacy will now be respected.”
“If any crime had ever been confessed to me by my brother, I would have acted immediately to protect the victim and their family.”
“These are despicable crimes and I welcome the guilty verdicts. As far as I am concerned, I no longer have a brother.”
Responding to Schofield’s return to the telly box ‘Nasty Nad’ Nadine Dorries MP penned in the Daily Mail this morning of her views on him. In a comment piece she shared:
“I’ve been interviewed by Holly [Willoughby] and Phillip several times, and off-camera found Holly an absolute delight and Mr Schofield rather up himself.”
“On one occasion, I witnessed what appeared to be somewhat intimidating behaviour. Holly was away, and as her stand-in looked down at her script – obviously wanting to see who or what was coming up next – Phillip glared at her and began to jab at her script with his finger. I don’t know about her, but he scared me.”
Further illustrating the dislike towards that came about as a result of him and Holly Willoughby’s actions as they pushed-in to parade past the late Queen Elizabeth II, in October 2022, Grocery Gazette reported that Waitrose had dropped Schofield’s wine range after “the retailers customers branded it undrinkable.” On the retailer’s website, the wines “rated at less than two and a half stars out of five with customer reviews describing the product as “very disappointing” and “not pleasant.” For once also, similarly of its ‘creator,’ maybe the usually anything but bang on the nail Nadine Dorries has a point.

After ratbag Michael Barrymore’s cringeworthily car-crash interview on ‘This Morning’ with dozy Josie Gibson, complaints are unsurprisingly made to Ofcom and in a Change.org petition; it is time for this outdated show simply to be cancelled.
