Phillip Schofield urged Prime Minister Boris Johnson to get his skates on for Dancing On Ice amid calls for him to resign over an alleged BYOB party hosted at Downing Street in May 2020.
Claims of the Bring Your Own Booze bash came after an email obtained by ITV News – addressed to at least 100 staff members – told them to ‘make the most of the weather’ and gather in the garden of Number 10.
This was despite the UK being in the midst of a lockdown during the first wave of the Covid pandemic.
At the time, members of the public were limited to meeting only one other person outdoors, leaving many unable to see dying relatives or attend their loved one’s funerals.
But with pressure increasingly mounting on the PM to resign after the alleged events and poorly-received apology, Phillip has teased what he thinks Mr Johnson’s next move should be – a Dancing On Ice contestant.
Phil thinks Boris should join the line-up of the popular Sunday night show if he ends up standing down from his role.
When the panel were asked who was on their ‘bucket list’ of contestants, he joked to Metro.co.uk the PM would be the perfect fit.
He said: ‘Well, I think you’ve all got to look for someone who’s looking at different career options or different things they can do, to fill in extra time.
‘So maybe Boris?’ the Dancing On Ice host giggled.
