Phillips, who was born in 1924, became famous in both the United Kingdom and the United States for his distinctive voice and roles as smooth upper-class British characters, as well as his racy catchphrases “Ding Dong,” “Heee-llo,” and “I Say” from comedies such as Carry On Teacher, Carry On Columbus, and Carry On Nurse.
