There's no denying that mother and son have a close bond. Last month on This Morning, Phillip admitted his mum has been lonely since his dad died of a heart condition 12 years ago. Overcome with emotion, Phillip said: "I know my mum - we lost my dad in 2008 - she's still saying she's terribly lonely.

"She looks at other people if they're still couples, and so you need contact, you need a family around you, you need people to be able to talk to if you can, if you're lucky enough to have them around."

Meanwhile, Phillip and his family would normally be enjoying their summer holidays in Portugal by now, but instead, the TV star is making last-minute preparations ahead of the release of his autobiography. "After being asked many times, and after many years of wanting to, I have written my autobiography," he told his fans.

"I wrote the first line of the book, in my head, when I was about 14. It took me until 2017 for me to finally write the first chapter and then I stopped because the time wasn't right."

He added: "Over the years I have been making notes of the stories and events of my life that I thought would tell my story. Finally, in lockdown, I knew that all the pieces of the jigsaw had been put into place and I was ready to write - that and a new discovery... lots of free time! It has been a fascinating experience, both immense fun and deeply emotional. Finally, after all these years, I’m happy it's gone from my head, to the page. I've been honest and I’ve been me."
