Phillip Schofield Skydives Into ITV Studios To Celebrate This Morning's 30th Birthday

Phillip Schofield Skydives Into ITV Studios To Celebrate This Morning's 30th Birthday

With dogs making their owners look like fools, mums lifting weights with their vaginas and accusations of drunk hosts, you've got to admit that This Morning is pretty decent daytime telly.

And today, the show celebrated turning 30, with a bunch of special throwback clips, past hosts and Phillip Schofield jumping out of a helicopter.


Yup, the silver fox took to the skies with the Red Devils to make his super grand entrance, diving 15,000 feet into the studio. Nicely done.


The show started with a clip of the 56-year-old sat in the back of a taxi on his way into the studio where he's on the phone to co-host Holly Willoughby telling her that he might not make it in time for the show's kick-off.

Holly promised to make a few calls.

Here, Dermot O'Leary got in on the action, when he told Holly he would 'call in some favours' . A quick cut to newsreader Mary Nightingale, who called on Dr Who /Jodie Whittaker who in turn put in a call in to Keith Lemon, who then managed to get Prime Minister and professional shape-thrower Theresa May on the line.

She called Phil and told him: "It's This Morning's 30th birthday, you absolutely have to be there... I know just the people who can help you.

"Remember Phillip, the nation's going to be watching. Good luck!"

This led to our man Phil getting involved with the Red Devils and eventually plummeting out of a helicopter. Naturally, he made it to the studios 'just in time' for the show to start.


In the hilarious clip, Alison was on the show's iconic floating weather map, but as she attempted a leap from England to Northern Ireland, she knocked over a man who was very inappropriately dressed for a dip in the icy, murky waters. But what was bad news for him, was TV gold for viewers who couldn't stop laughing at the little slip-up.


Holly and Phil also found the whole thing pretty funny - initially looking shocked before bursting into fits of laughter.

Happy birthday, This Morning, never change.
