Gordon the Gopher

The Broom Cupboard was the home of a number of puppets we should all remember and who can forget a young Philip Schofield with his furry friend Gordon the Gopher. Wearing his famous leather jacket, which was in fact a gift from 80’s popstar Adam Ant.

The squeaking gopher had a successful run, after his time in the Broom Cupboard in joined Phillip on the Saturday Morning show Going Live.

However it was a sad tale for the animal when Phil left the programme and according to a later interview with the now This Morning presenter, the poor Gopher ended up in rehab.
