The presenter said: ‘I did bail because I couldn’t see. I know it’s always one of my excuses, I can barely read the autocue at the best of times, but I had an eye infection Friday.

‘Do you remember it was watering a bit when I was on the show, and then it spread to the other eye. So I couldn’t put my contacts in, I couldn’t see anything!’

Kate added that things got worse as she started sending random texts to people and even transferred money to the wrong account, leaving Ranvir in hysterics.

The ITV star continued: ‘I actually was sending random texts to people with the wrong thing, really confusing me. I transferred money into the wrong account and had to ask for it back.

‘It was mortifying! And then I had an ear infection. Nothing serious, just frustrating and annoying!’ 

To which Ranvir quipped: ‘The thing is, you’ve had a quiet year’ as she pointed out Kate’s turbulent past few months, which saw her husband Derek Draper battle coronavirus and return to the family home after a year in hospital.

It comes after Kate’s new emotional memoir about her husband Derek’s, 53, battle with Covid jumped to the top of the book charts in its first week of sales.

The Good Morning Britain presenter’s book The Power Of Hope tells in raw detail about Derek’s ordeal was released on Thursday 29 April. 

Kate’s new memoir also pays tribute to ‘the brilliant team of doctors and specialists’ who have looked after Derek and how what they have learnt has helped the treatment of others.   

As well as topping the UK Official Top 50 book chart, it has also leapt straight into Amazon’s Most Sold: Non-Fiction chart – knocking Maggie O’Farrell’s Hamnet off the top spot and leapfrogging Charlie Mackesy’s The Boy, The Mole, The Fox and The Horse. 

In the emotional memoir, Kate describes how the toughest experience of her life began in March last year when Derek was taken to hospital with very low oxygen levels.

His condition worsened and he became one of the most stricken patients, remaining in intensive care for a year.  

Despite returning home recently, Derek remains seriously ill and doctors say he was the most seriously sick patient to have survived the virus.   

As well as recounting how the illness took hold of their lives, she writes about how she is coping with the uncertainty of their future and how she is supporting their two children – Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11 – through this traumatic time. 

Discussing her path to releasing the book, Kate previously attributed her notes to Piers Morgan saying: ‘It was actually Piers Morgan who very early on said “you’ve got to write this down…”

‘And I didn’t, really, because there didn’t seem time to write things down. But he said to just write words that you’ll remember because he said you won’t remember some of these things.’
