Phillip Schofield never borrows money as he believes he was killed in a past life over a debt that got his family murdered.
The This Morning host, 58, recalled the horrifying incident as a struggling husband in the 17th Century after he was regressed by a spiritualist.
Phil wrote in his new memoir Life’s What You Make It: “If we do take characteristics from life to life, I can’t owe anyone money.”
In the book, he described a sense of “impending doom” as “suddenly, and I have no idea how or why” he was at home.
He said: “I opened the door to silence and felt horror wash over me. Three steps in, and I saw them – two murdered bodies on the floor.
“I knew they were my wife and small child.
“Horror turned to fury. I knew why they were dead. I owed money to two brothers who worked at the end of the street in a sawmill.”
Phil went on: “I ran, crying, from the scene of this cruel act of retribution, straight to the sawmill. One of the brothers was there, but I couldn’t see the other. I ran straight to him, picked up a large piece of cut four-by-two and clubbed him repeatedly.
“The noise brought out the other brother and I ran from the mill, through the streets, and hid in a church.
“The brother found me, dragged me outside, punched me to the ground and, as my head hit the mud, he repeatedly stamped on it until I was dead!”
The TV star shares daughters Molly, 27, and Ruby, 24, with wife Stephanie Lowe, 56.
Phil, who came out as gay earlier this year, says he is still reminded of the vision if he is in a church.
He added: “That terrible set of events are as fresh in my head now as they were when I walked through that door.” Phil’s regression by past-life expert and “child healer” Andrea Foulkes was broadcast on This Morning in 2004.
A nine-minute clip is on YouTube showing him under hypnosis and speaking about it afterwards.
He says of the footage: “At my request, a lot of that was not shown.
“The crux of the problem was debt – now I’m always the sort of person who has to pay bills straight away.”
