During his emotional and candid interview on This Morning, Phillip praised his wife for her love and support.

He told Holly: "I've never had any secrets [from her], we've never had any secrets.

"We've been honest and open. And as I said, I can't write in any statement what I feel about that woman. She is amazing. She is incredible, there is no one in my life who would have supported me the way, as a wife, as the way she has supported me.

"She is astonishing, literally astonishing."

Stephanie told the publication: "I love Phillip, as much today as I ever have, and always will.

"At the same time, we've been awestruck by the strength and love of our precious girls, even as they've been trying to make sense of it all for themselves.

She went on: "Although this is difficult for us all, I support Phillip in this taking this brave step and I will still be there, holding his hand. Everyone should be proud to live their own truth."
