It comes after Kate made a heartbreaking admission about her husband, who first admitted to hospital in March 2020 after contracting coronavirus and now requires round-the-clock care.

In an interview with The Mail on Sunday's You magazine, she spoke about their changing relationship. "I'm not sure that we've ever fallen out of love, but I think a new path is emerging, a new way to be in love," she said.

The couple have been married since 2005

"He puts huge trust in me. He just says, 'Whatever you think', which is wonderful, but I do get quite tearful about it. I think, 'God, I hope I'm worthy of that trust'. But I've got his back. That is a relationship in itself, isn't it?"

Kate and Derek have been married since 2005 and together share two children, Darcey, 16, and 12-year-old Billy.
