“Now that we are home we don’t have to wear masks and we can touch him and hug him,” she said.

Kate also admitted that the kids were worried about her.

“I don’t think I realised how much they were taking care of me a lot along the way,” she said.

Darcey at one point actually said: ‘Mum are you going to kill yourself?’ Just out of the blue.

“I think they were at times wondering if I was going to be okay and if I was going to be able to keep going.

‘Darcey is really blunt’

The Good Morning Britain host continued: “That sounds horrific obviously, but if you know Darcey, she’s really blunt and she’ll always go to the most awful thing she can imagine and work her way back.

“At times that will be: ‘You’re not wearing that are you Mum?!’ But she just came out with that sentence.

“I went: ‘Oh my god no, why would you think that?’

“She said: ‘Well I wasn’t but I just thought I better check.’

“I said: ‘No, if anything it’s the absolute opposite.’

“I was like: ‘I’m so scared you thought of that,’ and she said: ‘Oh don’t make a big thing of it.'”

Kate added: “It showed at the very least that she wanted affirmation that it wasn’t going to happen, asking are you okay.

“And also it made me realise she was also not just worrying about her dad but also thinking of me and her brother.”
