Inside Phillip Schofield’s £8.6million net worth after huge Dancing on Ice wage

Phillip Schofield, alongside his This Morning co-presenter Holly Willoughby, is a daytime TV favourite.

This weekend we will see the presenting duo host the final episode of Dancing on Ice, after a very turbulent series which has seen numerous celebrities drop out.

But Holly and Phil have been there through it all to see us through.

Phillip landed the job at This Morning in 2002, and Dancing on Ice in 2006, but he also has many other jobs on his CV.

It may come as no surprise that the 58-year-old has amassed a huge net worth throughout his long and successful career.

Here we take a closer look at the TV star’s net worth, and his salary for various TV jobs – including Dancing on Ice.

Phillip Schofield has an estimated net worth of £8.6million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.

This is actually slightly less than his co-host Holly, even though he had a higher salary than her for a time.

In 2017 it emerged that he was being paid a whopping £600,000 for the presenting role at ITV, while Holly’s salary was £400,000.

She was given a pay rise of £200,000 to match his salary, after bosses realised if they were earning the same for Dancing on Ice, they should earn the same for This Morning.
