Back in February, Phillip took to Instagram to tell fans he is “coming to terms with being gay” in an emotional statement.

He later spoke further about his feelings on This Morning with his co-star Holly Willoughby.

The host has been married to his wife Steph for 27 years and they share two children together; Ruby and Molly.

At the time, Phil credited his long-term spouse and daughters for supporting him.

He said: “My family have held me so close, they have tried to cheer me up, to smother me with kindness and love, despite their own confusion.”

The presenter continued to praise his “incredible” wife, adding: “I love her so very much. She is the kindest soul I have ever met.”

“My girls have been astonishing in their love, hugs and encouraging words of comfort.

“Both mine and Steph’s entire families have stunned me with their love, instant acceptance and support.”

The host said the pair had never had any secrets, but admitted it had been tough for them all.

He explained further: “I’ve had to deal with this in my head for quite some time, we’ve been honest and open.

“I can’t write in any statement what I feel about that woman.”
