Speaking on the Chris Evans podcast, How To Wow, Phillip said: "My mother-in-law and father-in-law, John and Jill, they are amazing. My whole family, my God, the reaction from all of them was extraordinary.
"But just before Christmas, well during Christmas, I was cleaning – I clean, when I'm stressed, I tidy up – so I was cleaning a surface at Christmas, wiping it down and Jill, my wonderful mother-in-law, said, 'You are the perfect man, you know'.
Phillip and Stephanie have been married for 27 years
"And I just said, 'No Jill, no I'm not', but it was the sweetest thing to say. So yeah, big support from them."
Chris then read out a text message Phillip received from his father-in-law John, which said: "I may be your Pa-in-law but think of me as your surrogate Pa, and long may it continue… As long as Steph's ok we don't have a problem."
Revealing Phillip's response to the message, Chris added: "Then you text him back, 'Thank you so much, Captain, I'm so very deeply sorry to disappoint you.'"
To which John replied: "Nothing to be sorry for here son so cheer up!"

Reacting to the messages, Phillip told Chris: "I couldn't have wanted anything else really."
During the same conversation, Phillip revealed that he and Stephanie have not discussed getting a divorce. "I'm still married to Steph," he said. "There is a great deal of talk of divorce – we have not discussed that at all."
The This Morning presenter added: "With divorce... that has not been discussed. We are picking our way through and however that works and it’s a work in progress. I am a work in progress. Steph is a work in progress."
