"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."

The presenter married Stephanie in March 1993, and they are proud parents to daughters Molly, 27, and Ruby, 24. Speaking to co-star Holly Willoughby earlier this year about his wife, Phillip said: "Steph has been incredible – I love her so very much. 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."
