It's been a difficult few months for Kate as her husband Derek Draper remains in hospital. The 52-year-old was admitted to hospital after contracting coronavirus in March and was put into a coma by doctors.

Last week, the mum-of-two made a sensational return to the show in a bid to find some "normality" in her day-to-day routine. Doctors told her not to put her "life on hold" as Derek remains verbally unresponsive and warned her that he could persist in his current state for an unknown period of time.

"That would be his priority. My job is to make him feel safe and make them feel that they have a future and a world and whatever happens with Derek – we hope and believe he can come back to us – but whatever happens they have to feel they have a world. To see me getting on, they're going to go back to school in September."
