Kate's husband Derek has returned home from hospital after over a year

Earlier this week, mum-of-two Kate opened up about her husband's recovery in a heartfelt interview with Iain Dale on LBC.

During the conversation, Kate spoke about how her children, Billy and Darcey, had responded to their dad coming home.

She said the youngsters were "coping extraordinarily" with his return, and that they frequently spend time with their father.

The two children speak with him, and now that physical contact is allowed under coronavirus restrictions, they can finally hug him.

Kate also revealed that she and Derek still share a strong bond, admitting that he had recently given her a compliment.

She said: "I walked in the other morning just before I left to go to Smooth [Radio] and I said, 'I'm off to Smooth now,' and he said, 'New dress?' which was just amazing. And it was, actually!"

Kate continued: "And I thought that was amazing on so many levels because he recognised it [and] second, he realised to remember that I need a lot of flattery."
