It comes after Philip attended his first Pride celebration as a proud gay man after the event returned for the first time since the COVID pandemic.
The star, who has been married to wife Steph since 1993, came out in February 2020, appearing on the ITV show to discuss his news with his co-host and best friend Holly Willoughbyduring which he burst into tears.
Phil, who is father to daughters Molly and Ruby, was joined on Saturday by Kelly Holmes, who also came out and said it was her first LGBT+ event.

The parade that marked the historic 50th anniversary of the first UK parade in Londonalso in attendance were Alison Hammond, Lorraine Kelly and the stylish Gok Wan.
Mr Scofield was also seen live on his Instagram making a heart sign to the crowd of more than 600 LGBT+ groups who joined the march – the first event to take place since the start of the pandemic.
Floats lined Park Lane as revelers were spotted in face paint, glitter, jewels and sequins as they walked from Hyde Park Corner to Whitehall as they paid tribute to the original 1972 march which was attended by 2,000 people.

Organizers call it “the largest and most inclusive event in history,” but it has faced criticism in recent years from one of the early demonstrators.
LGBT+ human rights advocate and campaigner Peter Tatchell said it had become “too corporate and commercial” and not focused enough on politics.
His Gay Liberation Front (GLF) led the parade, holding placards saying “I was there in 1972” and that they were “still fighting” for global LGBT+ freedom.
The day also featured pop star Ava Max, Emeli Sande, Eurovision winner Netta, Samantha Mumba and Kat Graham.
Singer Ms Sande, who said in April that she was in a relationship with classical pianist Ioana Karemova, posted a story on her Instagram showing her and her partner on their way to a soundcheck.
