Talking about his family on BBC Radio 5 Live, the Dancing On Ice star said: ‘We love each other massively. We are a loving family, that hasn’t changed… it’s us four but different.
‘We are a work in progress. I’ve been very honest about all of this and there’s no question, we have to pick our way through this daily as a family.
‘And that’s what we are doing. We are making our way through very unusual and unexpected waters.’
When asked by hosts Scott Mills and Chris Stark how he was doing, Phillip added: ‘I’m okay. I am still a work in progress. I still have to come to terms with my life and with me.’

The media personality also explained how a legal end to their marriage has not been brought up, telling Chris Evans on his How To Wow podcast: ‘I’m still married to Steph. There is a great deal of talk of divorce – we have not discussed that at all.
‘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.
‘It is not in my nature to hurt people and so I have to reconcile myself with the fact that I have done that. Indeed I have done that and I tried very hard not to.
‘I also say, is it possible to come out and not hurt your wife? No of course it isn’t. My greatest concern is that she is okay.’

The father-of-two has credited his longtime spouse for being supportive following his revelation.
The TV star previously told co-star Holly Willoughby on This Morning: ‘There’s no one in my life who would have supported me the way, as a wife, as the way she supported me. She’s astonishing, literally astonishing.’
Phillip – who had confessed the secret of his sexuality ‘was going to give him a breakdown’ – spoke candidly about struggling to accept himself for the first time in his memoir Life’s What You Make It.
