If you are a Philippine passport holder then you can arrive with a passport that expires the same day but if returning to UK will need to renew it

If you are dual nationality and I assume British then you may be better using your UK passport if your visit is 30days or less as Filipinos have to pay 1720 to leave the country

Of course you can come yo your own country even if your passport expires that day, but you will niot be allowed to return to UK with this passport , so you should try renewing it now . Apply for renewal at Philippine Embassy in London. It is sent to Manila and takes 4-6 weeks for the new one to arrive.

OFWs can renew their passports at any DFA passporr renewal center without the need for an appoinment so you just need to go there during their office. You can get your new Philippine passport after 7 working days if you renew in Metro Manila.
