As well as sending Phil a gift to celebrate his 40th year on TV, Steph also made a rare TV appearance on Monday (February 21).

Monday’s edition of Lorraine was dedicated to Phillip’s four decades in TV. Numerous celebrities phoned in to congratulate Phillip on the achievement.

At one point during the show Steph, along with daughter Molly, phoned in to congratulate Phil too.

When asked what had led to Phillip being a success on TV for the last 40 years, Steph joked: “I don’t have a clue!”

“No, I think your previous guests have hit the nail on the head,” she continued. “He is genuinely interested in people and he’s always reading the news and he’s always keeping up on everything.

“And yeah, he’s good fun.”

“Steph has been the most incredible foundation and support and rock throughout my whole career,” he continued.

“My girls, I couldn’t be more proud of. So yeah, we’re a fam and it works.”
