Kate took extra precautions when preparing to send Darcey and Billy to stay with them over the weekend. And she was hesitant to drive them herself, not wanting to bring herself into contact with Derek’s parents unnecessarily.

Thankfully, her pal Jeremy was able to help out.

Jeremy’s taxi service

Kate said on GMB: “One of the things we did is plan over several weeks what to do. So I thought right, we have to be very clear. We have to isolate in the days before we travel.

“I washed and packed Darcey and Billy’s clothes and sealed them for quite a few days, just in case there was anything problematic there.

Good old Jeremy.

“They travelled up not with me because [the in-laws] haven’t even had contact with Derek’s sisters, so I didn’t want to be an extra person coming into their life.

“Thanks to Jeremy Kyle, they travelled up. Because he said, ‘Listen, my driver has been isolating and keeping the car very clean so I’ll take the children up’.”

Elsewhere on GMB, Kate’s phone vibrated as she and Ben introduced the day’s segments, as the programme got underway.

And Ben couldn’t help mocking his pal for the on-air blunder, prompting Kate to call on viewers to weigh in and say whether or not it was an issue.
