"Had been dragging my feet because I knew it would be so emotional & because didn’t want to seem to be giving up hope of him returning to the work he loves one day. Then the building was put up for sale and we had to clear out - fate!"

Kate went on: "Next problem was the huge task of packing up all his files, his cuttings, books and furniture he’s treasured for decades. Step forward the team from @davisandmac - this is not an ad just a hearty recommendation of a great team of lads who worked damn hard and were so sensitive to the situation."

The star finished by writing: "Thanks a million chaps - will be definitely calling you when Derek is setting up his new venture! [fingers crossed emojis]."
