PHILLIP Schofield celebrated turning 58 today with his celeb pals before Holly Willoughby banned him from blowing out his birthday candles on This Morning.
The presenter described his special day as “weird”, but said he had been cheered up by a video call with Dec Donnelly, Leigh Francis, Emma Bunton, Christine Bleakley, Davina McCall and Holly’s husband Dan Baldwin.
Opening today’s show, Holly said: “First on the agenda… Happy Birthday Phil. Obviously the shops are shut so we’re limited with what we can get you, but I do think you have the best birthday cake ever.
“You can’t have candles on it because you can’t blow them out.”
Phil replied: “Thanks very much. It’s a weird birthday, I’m lacking in hugs.
“I had a zoom party with my mates and that was really lovely, so thank you.”
Earlier this morning Holly had posted a sweet picture of them both on Instagram as she paid tribute to her co-host on his birthday.
She wrote: “Happy Birthday to this gorgeous man… @schofe love you to bits…”
