Earlier this month, Phil admitted he was “emotional” after clearing out his late dad’s belongings from their family shed.

Phil was devastated when his father died over 10 years ago and has previously spoken of his grief on This Morning.

As he came across Brian’s old circular saw amongst a pile of sawdust, he said: “Clearing out my late dad’s garage. Just moved his circular saw, all the jobs he did like the rings of a tree.”

The TV veteran then went on to knock over the sawdust pile.

He added: “That made me very sad.”
