Biography:

Phil arrived with Maggie, her children and his daughter Jess. He had recently split up with his alchoholic wife, Anne-Marie. Jess and Maggie didn’t see eye to eye at all. They fought over minor things.

Phil was stuck in the middle, but got on with Craig and Lucy. Jess continued to try and break up the new family and soon teamed up with Nicola. Nicola plotted against Maggie, and was very friendly towards Phil.

But Maggie and Phil’s relationship survived. In the end Jess left the village with her mother. Phil was upset about this, but soon got over it. Phil got a job working for Tate Trash.

Update:

The latest spoilers suggest that Phil and Maggie will split up around the 19th July 2002 following her fling with Rodney Blackstock.

Updated 6th September 2002:

In July, Phil visited Anne-Marie and Jess, and got some shocking news when he returned to find out from Nicola (of all people) that Maggie had slept with Rodney, so she could get a job.

In the Woolpack (whenever there is a fight in a soap, why is it always in the pub not in Café Hope or the B&B!) there was of course a fight.

It starts off with Phil hitting Rodney. Nicola then says "Get off him, he has a heart condition" Maggie slaps Nicola, who slaps Maggie back. Then Nicola grabs a cake and (as if it wasn't bad enough) shoves the cake in Maggie's face. You are left deeply upset for Peg, whose leaving party was ruined by the fight. (We had to endure Peg for another three episodes!)

Phil left shortly afterwards, after a heart to heart with Maggie.
