"And you know why..."

In 2017, Phillip wrote the very first chapter, which his close friends raved about.

They told him he had to finish the book, but he couldn't. He said, "And you know why."

The 58-year-old came out as gay in an emotional Instagram post in February.

Phillip has been married to Stephanie Lowe for nearly 27 years, and they share two daughters.

He admitted at the time of his coming out that he was, 'feeling pain and confusion,' over the hurt he's caused his family.

But they stood by his side regardless, 'they have tried to cheer me up, to smother me with kindness and love, despite their own confusion.'

'Finally, in Lockdown, I knew that all the pieces of the jigsaw had been put into place and I was ready to write...'

In the post's caption, Phillip wrote, 'It has been a fascinating experience, both immense fun and deeply emotional.'

'Finally, after all these years, I’m happy it’s gone from my head, to the page.'

In the video he revealed the book will take us behind the scenes of his life, his career, his family, his friends and all the ups and downs.

He began to wrap up, "And so I've been honest, and I've been me, and it's done."

"And I've discovered that at the end of it, life is indeed what you make it," Phillip finished.
