"Obviously, the situation with Kate is [bleep], but when Derek gets better, we can go full-steam ahead with that."

Myles said he's spoken to Kate "as much as I can" but he doesn't want to "bombard her with questions" because she "needs her close friends and family around her".

When Derek gets better, we can go full steam ahead with that.

He sent his prayers to her, Derek and their two children and wants to "respect that she wants privacy".

Meanwhile, Myles is starring in the new series of Celebrity MasterChef, which started tonight (July 1).

Speaking about doing the BBC show, Myles recently admitted he was "very excited" about doing it.

What did he say?

He told What’s On TV: "I was actually very excited but when it got to the actual day of filming and you walk in and John [Torode] and Gregg [Wallace] are there.

"My nerves were really bad to start with. Everything I’d ever learnt about cooking went out of the window."

He added: "Being on MasterChef was another wow moment just like when I did X Factor and I’m A Celebrity."

Celebrity MasterChef begins tonight, on BBC One, at 9pm.
