Phillip, who revealed that he is gay live on air earlier this year, made the remarks in a discussion about mental health.
He told viewers: “Over the next few weeks I will be talking quite a lot about my mental health.
“It’s surprising how you think you’ve got a grip on everything and suddenly your head takes you to dark and scary places.
“There’s no question I needed a lot of help in recent times with people who sit right beside me right now,” he said, referring to co-host Holly Willoughby, “who helped me enormously.
“Steph, my wife at home, my girls (daughters), my family… and loved ones can be instrumental in helping. I understand that not everyone is as lucky as I am, to have sympathetic ears to listen… but the first point has to be to reach out to the people that know you the best and find a rock that you can tie yourself to.
“I’ve been to some fairly dark places in my head. When those clouds roll in, if you are patient, it is extraordinary how a little bit of sunshine can come through.”
Phillip revealed in February that he had “been coming to terms with the fact that I am gay”. He married Stephanie in 1993. They have two daughters, Ruby and Molly.
