has been comforted by her kids when she’s “wobbling” while her husband Derek Draper fights for his life in hospital.

She’s been unable to visit him during the ordeal, and Kate has confessed she’s had moments where she’s gone through dark times.

However, she credits her children, Billy, 10, and Darcey, 14, with keeping her spirits up.

In a post on her Instagram page, she wrote: “I couldn’t be prouder of how she & Billy have coped with these past 2 horrific months for our family…

“The journey for me and my family seems to be far from over as everyday my heart sinks as I learn new & devastating ways this virus has more battles for Derek to fight.

“But he is still HERE & so there is still hope.”
