PM would 'absolutely' appear on This Morning after paedophile list scandal says Schofield
Thursday 24 January 2013
Phillip Schofield said David Cameron would "absolutely" come back on This Morning despite the storm of controversy caused when he ambushed the Prime Minister with a list of alleged paedophiles during a live interview.
The presenter was heavily criticised for giving a list of Conservative Party figures, drawn from gossip circulating on the internet, to Mr Cameron last year and accidentally exposing it to the cameras.
He was criticised at the time by a Downing Street source as "irresponsible", and Mr Cameron also warned the presenter of the danger that "this can turn into a sort of witch hunt" and said he was "worried" by his actions.
Schofield later apologised, and when asked last night at the National Television Awards if the Prime Minister would come back on the show, he said: "Yes, absolutely. He's already said he would. There's no question. Absolutely."
