Why have Kate and her kids been isolating?
This morning (Thursday December 17) Kate also gave viewers an update on her husband Derek’s condition.
She also explained that her recent absence from GMB was down to a coronavirus scare with her children.
“Few challenges kicking off, going on, challenges with Derek as there always are,” she said.
“Outside Derek, we also had another scare as children came into contact with someone – who did not get ill – that had a positive test.”
