A shocked Ben exclaimed: “What?!”

Kate continued: “Really bad, I’ve actually got it on film, I’ll find it if you like.”

“He’s fine, everyone’s fine. The horse stopped and turned around – Smokey, the horse was – and looked at him as if to say I’m so sorry.”

She then promised viewers she would dig out the video of the accident and play it on the show.

Kate did show some sympathy for her little boy though, as she admitted: “It’s always Billy, poor old Billy.”

What else have Kate and the kids been up to?

Last week, Kate and the kids – Billy and Darcey – headed out for their first night out since Kate’s husband Derek Draper fell ill.

The trio enjoyed a night at the theatre.

However, they admitted it felt strange without Derek there.

Posting 0n Instagram, Kate said: “Well this was a moment – the first time the kids & I have been out to something other than school or work since Derek got sick.

“It was a magic show we were supposed to be heading to when he was rushed into hospital – and we felt strange that we were going out to one when he isn’t ready to – YET.

“But it was so wonderful to see Darcey and Billy enthralled and mystified and enraptured – the magic of life returning. And I know that’s what Derek wants too,” she added.
