“But Holly is at the top of that group.

“Once after a particularly long lunch at Nobu, we parted and staggered off to our respective homes.

“The next day I phoned Holly. Because I couldn’t remember paying the restaurant bill.

“Holly said check your coat for the receipt. When I put my hand in my coat pocket – I found a full container of hand soap.

“I was mortified. Had I stolen it from the loos? I told Holly and she checked her bag.

Indeed, the presenting pair are known to be the best of mates both on and off screen.

In fact, even holiday together abroad with their families.

Elsewhere in Phil’s upcoming book, he will go into detail on his decision to come out at gay in February.

Earlier this year he said that he began writing his autobiography as a teen – but there is much more to reveal now.

He shared on his Insta stories: “I wrote the first line when I was 14, and I knew exactly how I wanted it to start, should I ever write it. And it is in fact now the first line.

“In 2017, I wrote the first few chapters and sent it a few friends and they said, ‘Oh my god, you have to write this’, and I knew I couldn’t, and you know why.

“And then my life changed, and lockdown happened and I had a shed load of time on my hands. I thought, ‘Well, you’ve thought about it for long enough, you’ve written all these notes, why don’t you do it and see what happens?’ and so I did. I wrote and I wrote and I loved it, and it’s done.”

Phillip Schofield’s book Life’s What You Make It is released nationwide on October 15.
