She beamed as she wore a stunning black and white chevron-print wrap dress from NEXT, and black shoes, with her neat long blonde bob flowing almost to her shoulders.

The star's caption read: "Let's ease ourselves out of black & mourning with some gentle music… Join me now on @smoothradio. Dress @myleeneklass."

Robert took the opportunity to praise Kate and speak about how proud he was of his colleague and her eye-opening documentary, Caring for Derek, which covered her husband Derek Draper's long health struggle after he was hospitalised with COVID-19.

The TV star and barrister began: "First of all, you are sunshine in human form… I just want to say more than anything else, you are a model of the possibility against a backdrop of darkness of being light in every sense."

Kate is married to former Labour party adviser Derek Draper

He continued: "I also want to say, I'm gonna use language my grandmother would use, I am kvelling, I am so proud of you today.

"Your amazing documentary Caring For Derek is being shortlisted for a National Television Award, and to use the platform you have for change, for authenticity just makes me proud to know you."

At this point, Robert and Kate were both clearly emotional as he added: "I'm not gonna cry but I am just very proud," to which Kate responded: "That's so lovely! I'm gonna cry myself!"
