The TV personality, 59, admitted the programme’s bosses fear he will suffer a nasty accident following a close shave back when it began in 2006.
After judge Chris Dean and professional Matt Evers showed him the ropes on the rink, Phillip decided he would learn how to skate.
‘I got into proper trouble!’ Phillip Schofield has admitted he’s been ‘BANNED from skating’ by Dancing On Ice bosses who fear a nasty accident
He hilariously told The Sun: ‘So I had a go, then I looked up and there were five suits standing on the lectern and I thought, “That doesn’t look good.”
‘They said, “You are not insured, you can’t skate, you have to come off.” I thought if I take responsibility for myself, it’s nobody’s fault if I fall over and hurt myself.
The This Morning host concluded: ‘So the next week, I went out again and got into proper, proper trouble. So that was the end of my skating.’
A representative for ITV has been contacted for comment by MailOnline.

It comes after Phillip predicted a young celebrity will win Dancing On Ice this year as they are less likely to injure themselves on the show.
The television presenter said the more youthful contenders are ‘fearless’ giving them better chances in the competition.
According to The Mirror, he said: ‘It’s incredibly dangerous. Ice skates are fairly sharp. And so we’ve had some nasty cuts.

‘We’ve had big falls. They’re great fun, so long as nobody hurts themselves.
‘What we love is the fearless nature. Now, you can really only have that if you’re at the younger end of the age spectrum, when you know if you fall over, it’s not going to break.’
He added: ‘We’ve found that the younger you are, especially if you’re a dancer, then you have that bravery, the courage and, you know, you go for it.’
The youngest stars to compete on the new series of Dancing On Ice include Love Islander Liberty Poole, 21, BMX Olympic silver medalist Kye Whyte, 22, Paul Gascoigne’s son Regan Gascoigne, 25, The Vamps’ Connor Ball, 25, rugby star Ben Foden, 36, and Paralympian Stef Reid, 37.
Other celebrities taking part include presenter Ria Hebden, 38, pop star and actress Kimberly Wyatt, 39, singer Rachel Stevens, 43, professional dancer Brendan Cole, 45, Happy Mondays dancer Bez, 57, and Coronation Street star Sally Dynevor, 58.
Dancing On Ice returns to ITV for series 14 in January 2022.
