Viewer Valerie took to twitter to write: "I’m worried she might lose or damage those beautiful rings. Am I the only person who takes off my engagement ring when cooking or gardening? #loveyourgarden"

And Kate, whose husband Derek Draper is still battling the devastating effects of his Covid battle, responded directly, explaining she fears it would be bad luck to remove the ring.
