Meanwhile, Molly rejoiced, “I mean, I’ve always been so proud of him. I remember going on a school trip to see him in Doctor Dolittle and all my friends wanted to go look for him for an autograph.
“I remember standing in line myself. I wanted it too – I felt left out!’
Phillip was asked what his family means to him and he referred to the “changes” in their lives after coming out publicly as gay in early 2020.
He said: ‘[They mean] everything. We’ve obviously had changes in our lives, but I’ve always said there are four of us, but something different. I was with Steph and Ruby during the big storm on Friday.
‘That’s essential. Steph has been the most incredible foundation, support and rock of my career. My girls I couldn’t be more proud of.’
