Trivia

  • Schofield was rugby tackled by Fruitbat from Carter USM in front of millions of television viewers at the children's music awards TV show Smash Hits Poll Winners Party in 1991.
  • Schofield was twice gunged on Noel's House Party.
  • Schofield was approached to advertise Del Monte bananas at the height of his Going Live fame; the fruit conglomerate saw his appeal to younger viewers as a way to increase sales of health food products. However, Schofield had revealed in an issue of the BBC's Fast Forward magazine dated 6th February 1992, that he suffers from an allergy to bananas, and as a result the advertising house decided the potential campaign was unworkable.
