Despite her ongoing heartache, Kate - who shares two children Darcey, 14 and William, 11, with Derek - is continuing to hold hope.

"Everybody is hoping 2021 will bring just a bit of hope and relief," continued Kate. "The vaccine is here now, so everybody is hoping that will help Covid, I think, and help us regain some normality."
