“I think if they can go six months without giving a hug to their son, who is so desperately ill, then the rest of us can probably get through.

“Sorry, I didn’t mean to depress everybody. But that’s the reality of getting caught up in the virus.”

The TV star later called for people to do their “best” after some have ditched social distancing and their face masks.

Kate and Derek, who wed in 2005, are parents to Darcy, 14, and Billy, 11.
