Kate went on to explain that while her husband can’t yet talk as much as he could before his illness, he is “aware” of where he is.
The presenter also spoke of her children’s excitement at welcoming their dad home, saying: “I could see two little faces looking out the window.”
Kate also told colleagues about how she laid the table for four for the first time in a year which saw her shed a tear.
She said: “We managed to sort of do that and as I was laying out the plates, I realised I was laying out four.
“It makes me cry now,” she added.
