Earlier in the year the ITV star revealed that he and his mum had decided to wait until lockdown restrictions were eased before seeing each other.
Despite Pat having received both doses of the coronavirus earlier in the year, the star revealed they were both going to wait until the easing of restrictions ahead of their reunion.
Speaking onThis Morning earlier this year, Phillip said: “Mum was very lucky actually, she’s not a billionaire, she’s just down in Cornwall.
“She just happened to be on the list and they called her back, I think maybe towards the end of the period they might have some left over or whatever, and she got her second vaccine,” he added.

Last year the ITV presenter spoke to Chris Evans on his Virgin Radio Breakfast show about the moment he came out to his mum as gay.
“She knew I was coming and she knew something was up,” he revealed to the radio DJ.
Phillip explained: “I have floaters in my eyes which drive me crazy.
“So we had our fish and chips and I said, ‘Mum, I have something to tell you’ and she said, ‘Okay, alright’ and I said ‘I’m gay’.”
Phillip went on to reveal Pat’s reaction to the news: “And she went, ‘Oh thank god, I thought you were going blind’!”
Confused by her response, the presenter recalled: “I said ‘What the hell do you mean? Why do you think I’m going blind?’
“She said, ‘Those things you’ve got in your eyes and I know you’ve been very sad recently’ and I said ‘No mum, no. No I’m not going blind’.”
In response to him coming out as gay, Phillip previously said his mum replied: “‘Oh ok, well I don’t care’.”
