He told his followers: “A lot of people say they don’t do red wine in the summertime.

“Three bottles in one box. Nothing is going to smash.

“And it’s great with wagyu burgers.”

And it’s a big summer indeed for Phil, as he is also promoting his upcoming book.

Life What’s You Make It, is set for an October release, but he’s already started its marketing.

The book is expected to cover the lead up to his coming out as gay. Phil announced he was gay in February of this year.

He hints at this during another video on Instagram. He describes writing the first chapter of his autobiography back in 2017.

Sending it to friends, they encouraged him to write it.

Phil explains: “They said ‘oh my god you have to write this’.

“But I knew I couldn’t. And you know why.

“And then my life changed – and then lockdown happened.

When is Phillip Schofield’s autobiography out?

“And I ended up with a shed load of time on my hands.

“….so I thought why don’t you just do it? See what happens?

“And so I did. And I wrote and I wrote – and I loved it – and it’s done!

“I will take you behind the scenes of my life. And my career, and my family, and my friends.

“And the ups and downs that there have been. Lots of ups, lots of fun.

“But some very, very emotional times as well.”
