Phillip Schofield isn’t about to let anyone replace him as the ultimate Joseph.
The breakfast show host surprised everyone when he swept onto the Saturday Night Takeaway stage for the End Of The Show Show dressed in the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat and belted out Any Dream Will Do. After all, Schofield starred in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical on the West End stage in 1991 – and he clearly kept the costume.

As Ant and Dec celebrated Lloyd Webber’s 70th birthday with a theatrical medley of his greatest musical hits, they were joined on stage by Joe McElderry (current “Joseph”), James Corden, and Schofield himself. Of course it was Schofield who stole the show.
Webber was so impressed that he offered Schofield the part – again.

If you don’t think Philip Schofield is the ultimate national treasure then you are wrong

I don't know if it's just because I'm a massive musical theatre nerd but I started screaming and running around my room when Phillip Schofield came on as Joseph on #SaturdayNightTakeaway

I’m completely howling and actually quite shook at Philip Schofield singing Joseph on Saturday Night Take Away
