Phillip Schofield has taken aim at the Prime Minister with a wild dig based on Dancing On Ice.
The TV star has suggested Boris Johnson could be the perfect candidate for the ITV skating competition in 2023.
Phil made his comments as he joined Dancing On Ice co-host Holly Willoughby and the show’s judges for a round of interviews ahead of the show’s return this weekend.
The This Morning duo will be back on screen one extra day a week when the show kicks off on Sunday night (January 16) with 12 new celebs taking the ice.

Asked about his ideal candidate for Dancing On Ice, Phil told the Mirror and other outlets: “I think you have to look for someone who is maybe looking for different career options or different things they can do to save some extra time, so maybe Boris.”
Christopher Dean joked in response, “He’s got some free time,” while Holly added, “We throw awesome office parties.”
Phil then showed everyone his plate of food and drink, adding, “Look at that, plus we’ve all just got some cheese.”
It comes as the Prime Minister faces growing pressure to resign after admitting to attending a bring your own booze event in Downing Street during the 2020 lockdown.
Since appearing in the House of Commons on Wednesday, it has been reported that advisers and officials gathered after work for two separate events on April 16, 2021, as the country mourned the death of Prince Philip.
April 16 was also the day before the Duke of Edinburgh’s funeral, which saw a limited turnout and the Queen sat alone in St George’s Chapel on the grounds of Windsor Castle.
The events were to mark the departure of James Slack, the Prime Minister’s former communications director and one of the Prime Minister’s personal photographers, The Telegraph reported.
Number 10 has since apologized to Buckingham Palace for two parties held “in a time of national mourning” following the death of Prince Philip.
A spokesman for the Prime Minister said Downing Street had issued an apology to the Palace following the reports.
The new Downing Street rule-breaking allegations will be covered by the Sue Gray inquiry.
