Phillip Schofield once again suggested that Boris Johnson should join the cast of Dancing on Ice, after he was asked about a potential move in the house. The funnyman said “Everyone down at Westminster would be proud to know our former Mayor is on TV and winning.”

Phillip Schofield pushed Prime Minister Boris Johnson to go on his skates for Dancing On Ice, despite demands for him to quit over a rumored BYOB party planned for Downing Street in May 2020.
The Bring Your Own Booze event was allegedly organized after an email acquired by ITV News, sent to at least 100 staff members, advised them to’make the most of the weather’ and congregate in Number 10’s garden.
Despite the fact that the UK was under lockdown during the first wave of the Covid epidemic, this was achieved.
Members of the public were only allowed to meet one other person outside at the time, preventing many people from seeing dying relatives or attending funerals for loved ones.
But, as pressure mounts on Prime Minister David Cameron to resign after the alleged events and a lukewarm apology, Phillip has hinted what he believes Mr Johnson’s next move should be — a Dancing On Ice contender.
If Boris decides to leave his post, Phil believes he should join the cast of the popular Sunday night program.

He joked to Metro.co.uk that the PM would be the ideal match when the panel was asked who was on their ‘wish list’ of candidates.
‘Well, I believe you’ve all got to look for someone who’s looking at various job possibilities or different things they can do to fill in the gaps,’ he added.
‘Perhaps Boris?’ The host of Dancing On Ice laughed.
Holly Willoughby, his co-host, added to the joke, adding, ‘We have wonderful workplace parties.’
‘What’s more, we’ve all got a smidgeon of cheese,’ Phil continued, pointing to his backstage snack dish.
It’s not the first time someone has suggested he join an ITV reality program; Ant & Dec did something similar on I’m A Celeb last year.
Dec said they’d already hired the first participant for the 2022 season after Frankie Bridge departed the castle in third place.

The couple debuted an I’m A Celeb campmate-style T-shirt with a name and phone number on the back that read Boris in big letters, as seen on the show.
Dancing On Ice is the host of the show. Even in the midst of their daytime program, This Morning, Holly and Phil went live to the vital PMQs on Wednesday.
Mr Johnson faced Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, and was compelled to respond to charges made by the staff party.

‘I also don’t believe many individuals in the workplace are encouraged to bring their own drink,’ Holly added after Boris’ speech in the House of Commons.
‘He seems to be firmly pushing the ball away, saying, ‘Let’s see what happens in the investigation…’
ITV’s Dancing On Ice premieres on Sunday at 6.30 p.m.
