What else has Phillip been up to?

A source told the newspaper: “Phillip may be two years off 60, but he’s still a telly powerhouse – and very much in demand.

“He’s ambitious, and quite rightly has no desire to slow down any time soon.”

Phillip’s business interests also extend to the wine industry.

Delighted to have won an internationally renowned award yesterday.

Earlier in the summer, he revealed that his company – When In Rome wine – won a bronze medal in the IWSC awards for its white Falanghina wine.

“Delighted to have won an internationally renowned award yesterday,” he said.

“One ambition when creating my wines was to help challenge the perceptions of boxed wine, showing that they’re excellent quality as well as being eco-friendly.”
