The presenter said: "I have to ask you on a personal note, because you cared for Michae, and Derek, we've now found out was two beds away. Did you care for him?" to which Beth replied: "I would have done."
"God that is amazing," said an emotional Kate, who was holding back tears. "Thank you so much by the way."
