A source told OK!: "Whatever Phillip has done behind Steph’s back, she still loves him.
"Even if the love they shared in the beginning of their marriage is different to what it is now, the love is still very much there."
They continued: "Steph is, and always will be, Phillip’s support system. She hasn’t divorced him because she doesn’t want to see him fall any further.
"Phil has caused his wife a lot of hurt in recent times. But there’s no denying, they still have a great friendship and share a lot of love."
Phillip met his wife Steph when they were working a the BBC and married in 1993.
In 2020 Phillip came out as gay and revealed Steph's positive reaction. At the time, Phillip :
"My family have held me so close they have tried to cheer me up, to smother me with kindness and love, despite their own confusion.
"Steph has been incredible. I love her so very much. She is the kindest soul I have ever met. My girls have been astonishing, 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."
However, Phillip did confirm that his wife was 'angry' when she first found out about his affair.
This news comes after Lorraine Kelly, 64, revealed that she had spoken to Phillip since his ITV exit, and confirmed 'he's doing all right.'
Speaking to The Times, Lorraine confirmed: "I was heartbroken when all that happened. It's just a shame for the amazing career that he's had, for it to end like that. I think everybody lost their minds a wee bit."
"He's doing all right and he will be all right, but it's hard."
