When asked by hosts of the ITV breakfast show Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid how their children were, Kate sighed: “I don’t know.”

She continued: “I mean, they are fundamentally extraordinary. You know, every child is extraordinary, every parent thinks their child is extraordinary, I think they’ve coped tremendously well.
“I mean, the simple act of talking on a FaceTime to a dad who’s very changed, it’s a huge one. They cope with it in their different ways, they’re amazing.”
Kate then went on to reveal Billy’s hilarious reaction to the documentary and the relief she felt when he announced his main concern about the show.
She said: “They’ve both seen it, the documentary, I wanted to make sure they had felt comfortable with it. I was comforted by the fact that A, obviously they’ve seen a lot of things that will be a shock to people because they’ve been speaking to him on FaceTime.
“And then, Billy’s main comment was, ‘I can’t believe that they showed the bit of me on the trampoline before I could do a backflip, I’ve since learnt to do one’.
“As soon as he said that I was like, okay we’re fine, we’re fine, he’s worried about his backflip. But of course he’s not, he’s worried about his dad and they’re coping everyday.
“I just think actually, you know, it’s a compliment to Derek because he’s filled them with so much love and confidence up until now and hopefully will be able to again, they have that inside of them.”
