Kate replied: ‘He’s had a good day today, we did some exercises together before I came out. A day at a time, but today’s a good day. Thank you for asking, that’s really kind of you.’  

Ahead of presenting the award for Best Nurse, Kate, who was also a judge for The Sun’s Who Cares Wins Awards, said: ‘I’m here to talk about nurses. I mean, where do you begin, there is absolutely no doubt that everything nurses do every day is utterly breath-taking. 

‘But sometimes it’s the little moments of thoughtfulness that make all the difference and it’s one of those that’s lead to tonight’s recipient being nominated.’
