Phillip Schofield can be seen back on This Morning in Netflix's new No1 show months after his ungraceful exit from ITV.

The disgraced presenter stepped down from This Morning earlier this year after controversy surrounding his brother's child sex conviction. Schofe then quit ITV altogether after his "unwise but not illegal" affair with a younger male runner on the show.

But months after his exit, he can be seen back on the famous sofa alongside former friend and co-star Holly Willoughby. Phil has returned to television in new Netflix series Who Killed Jill Dando?

In the third episode of the Netflix true crime documentary, Phil appears back on screens – but he does not speak. It's a clip from 2022 on the 23rd anniversary of the murder of journalist Jill Dando.

In the segment, Holly says: "What happened that morning remains a mystery, the crime unsolved, her killer never held to justice." Phil stays quiet with his hands folded in his lap.

Broadcaster Jill Dando was shot outside of her west London home on April 26, 1999 and her murder has remained unsolved for more than two decades. The new Netflix documentary explores the theories, with interviews from Jill's loved ones, journalists and other key figures.

One man was convicted of of the murder and spent eight years in prison for it. Barry George, a convicted sex offender, always denied having anything to do with it but was sentenced to life in prison.

The conviction was based on a particle of gunshot residue that was found in his jacket pocket. But in 2007, at a Court of Appeal hearing, that evidence was dismissed and the conviction overturned.

George claimed he "didn't know" who Jill Dando was, though police found magazines featuring her in his home. He says in the Netflix documentary: "It makes me angry that they have taken eight years of my life."

Other theories explored in the documentary are a Serbian hitman, due to her coverage of the Serb-Kosovo war, a criminal gang due to her work on Crimewatch, or a close relationship – though a number of exes were later removed from the investigation.
