The pair used up all their lives on a particularly tricky challenge where he had to turn over red and white cylinders before the time ran out. 

On Friday Phillip paid an emotional tribute to ‘astonishing’ Holly Willoughby after she supported him and his family when he came out this year. 

The TV presenter, 58, said his This Morning co-host’s ‘sensible and balanced’ demeanour helped him navigate coming out on live television in February after 27 years of marriage to his wife Steph.

Breaking down in tears on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio on Friday, he said: ‘Holly has been astonishing. Literally, the best mate… she’s serene and calming and sensible and balanced.’   

He added that this wasn’t just for him, but also for Stephanie Lowe, his wife of 27 years, with whom he has daughters Molly, 27, and Ruby, 24  

Phillip said: ‘I have recently found myself finding it easier to laugh more – it’s always funny with Holly, we always have a laugh.

‘But you think – of that feels nice to laugh, that feels better. So finding me is the goal for the moment.’ 

In the emotional and heartfelt interview, he spoke about telling his mum he was gay, the on-going journey to finding himself and how it felt to be on the edge.  

The TV personality said that he didn’t realise until after his Instagram post that it would also save lives.

He said: ‘I thought a lot about me… I got lost very much in the darkness of my own head so I didn’t think about the wider consequences. 

‘I was concerned for family, I was concerned for the job, how will people see me, are they going to look at me differently…

‘Actually last night someone messaged me and said, you saved my life and you made it okay.’ 

Explaining what it felt like to be on the edge, Phillip said: ‘Just: ‘I don’t know whether I want to be here anymore’. And that’s a frightening place to be, but I think I was very, very lucky that I had Steph.’
