“And I hope it’s given her the lift she needs to keep herself, her husband Derek and the kids going.

“When it comes to our sanity, I always say nothing works unless you do. It’s so important we look after ourselves so we can look after everyone else.

“I can’t begin to imagine what it’s been like for her, with Derek battling COVID-19 in intensive care since March.

“But I have been in awe of how she’s handled herself in public – and like the true professional she is, Kate’s strength has shone.”

Good Morning Britain is on ITV, weekdays, from 6am.
