Kate, 54, said Piers’ tough love worked, helping keep her going as stricken Derek Draper struggled on.
She said: “When Piers rang he did what the Piers I’ve known for 20 years always did, and went into Churchillian rallying mode.
“‘Right, Kate, get a grip. You’re a brilliant journalist. Do what you do best . . . get on this. Get to the bottom of the situation.

In her new book, The Power of Hope, Kate added: “It worked, spurring me on.”
