It was in films like "Quadrophenia", "Breaking Glass" and "Scum" that Phil made his name as an actor, while some people will always know his as the narrator on Britpop band Blur's tracks including "Parklife". He has also used his narrative skills as a voice actor on the Aardman film "Chicken Run" when he and Timothy Spall provided the voice of the two rats. Phil has also performed on stage with the Royal Shakespeare Company in productions including "The Merchant of Venice" and "The Jew of Malta".
Phil's television career spans comedy and drama, with the likes of sitcom, "Time Gentleman, Please", and BBC drama "Outlaws", but has also included a two year spell on the BBC soap opera,"EastEnders", but his character, Kevin Wicks, was killed off in a car crash at the end of 2007.
Phil danced in the sixth series of Strictly Come Dancing, with professional partner Flavia Cacace. Their first dance was a waltz and was to be their last one, with Phil looking uncomfortable throughout the dance, and making a few mistakes during the routine. The judges placed them third from bottom on the leaderboard, but after the public vote they found themselves in the bottom two. As the judges voted, it looked like they might be saved, as Craig and Arlene both voted to save Phil & Flavia, but Bruno didn't and it was down to head judge Len, who decided to vote against them, meaning Phil was the first to leave the competition in series six, finishing last out of sixteen couples.
