It was inevitable we guess!

It was the biggest TV scandal this year and now it's looking like it's going to be made into a TV drama series.

With a working title of The Runner - the show is set to follow the lead-up to Phillip Scofield's downfall, including his fallout with co-presenter Holly Willoughby.

The 61-year-old TV presenter was forced to step down from presenting This Morning after 21 years, when it came to light that he had had an affair with a young runner on the show.

At the time the news came out, Phillip Schofield released a statement calling the relationship "unwise but not illegal".

The production company behind the proposed TV series is looking for a channel that will broadcast it, and apparently things are looking good for an uptake from Channel 4.

Seeing as the channel previously broadcast a show based on the Wagatha Christie trial, that doesn't seem totally unlikely to us!

A source told The Sun: "The storyline will reflect what went on. People have seen it from the outside but the drama will give a perspective on what may have occurred behind-closed-doors."

Does that mean the script will have some input from people who were working behind the scenes? We'll have to wait and see!
