Recalling the terrifying moment, Kate said: “Suddenly, my tyre exploded and it’s that moment where shout think you can’t control the car.

“The. stewing went all weird, bits of rubbing flying everywhere, I don’t know if it was smoke but it looked like smoke.”

Kate did manage to stop the vehicle without any collisions – but the drama was far from over.

She continued:  “I managed to pull over but it just happened to be on the section of motorway where there wasn’t a hard shoulder.

“There was a feeder road coming off, so I was nervous about people coming in on the insider.”

“And then they kept saying can you go somewhere quieter. to speak and I. said no we’re on the motorway”
