Phillip – a well-known wine aficionado – partnered up with the When In Rome to develop his range of wines, which features the white Falanghina and a Nero di Troia red wine. Both wines are ethically sourced from independent Italian vineyards, and come in eco-friendly 2.25l boxes – the equivalent to three bottles of wine – made with a recyclable inner bag. Both boxes cost £24.99 each.

The star’s This Morning co-host Holly Willoughby is certainly showing her support. She previously shared a photo on Instagram showing her with a box of both the red and white wine from his range.
