Phillip revealed his sexuality in an emotional segment on This Morning two weeks ago.

He was comforted by co-star Holly Willoughby as he described the mental struggle he had been through.

Phillip said: “You never know what is going on inside someone’s seemingly perfect life, what issues they are struggling with, or the state of their wellbeing – and so you won’t know what has been consuming me for the past few years.

It wasn’t easy. But they are so loving in their love and support. They jumped up and gave me a hug, a big hug, a long hug

“With the strength and support of my wife and my daughters I am coming to terms with the fact that I am gay.

“This is something that has caused many heartbreaking conversations at home.”

Phillip seemed overwhelmed with the support he was receiving both from best friend Holly and fellow presenters Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes.

Speaking of the moment he told his daughters, Phillip said: “It wasn’t easy. But they are so loving in their love and support. They jumped up and gave me a hug, a big hug, a long hug.

“They hugged Steph and said, ‘Its OK, this is fine’. We will always be a family. We will always be that.”

When asked how his wife has coped with the news, he added: “Yeah, it’s tough. But this is not something that happened quickly, I’ve had to deal with this in my head for quite some time.

“We’ve been honest and open. Steph, I can’t write in any statement what I feel about that woman. She’s amazing, she’s incredible.

“There is no one in my life who would have supported me the way… as a wife, the way she has supported me. She’s astonishing, literally astonishing.”
