Stephanie Lowe gave Phillip Schofield this sweet birthday gift

Phillip and Stephanie wed in March 1993 and they had been married for 27 years before he bravely opened up about his sexuality. "Steph has been incredible – I love her so very much," he gushed at the time.

"She is the kindest soul I have ever met. My girls have been astonishing in their love, hugs and encouraging words of comfort. Both mine and Steph's entire families have stunned me with their love, instant acceptance and support. Of course, they are worried about Steph, but I know they will scoop us both up."

Two years on, Phillip has moved out of the family home he previously shared with Steph and their daughters in Oxfordshire and now lives in a property thought to be worth £2million in Chiswick, west London. However, he continues to wear his gold wedding ring on his left hand.

On his podcast How To Wow in October 2020, Chris Evans asked the Dancing on Ice host how long he will continue to wear his ring, and he replied: "That is a very good question, Chris. I don't know. Because I am still married to Steph.

"It is not in my nature to hurt people and so I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I have done that. Indeed I have done that and I tried very hard not to. I also say, is it possible to come out and not hurt your wife? No of course it isn't. My greatest concern is that she is okay."
