Cat Deeley supported as she reveals husband Patrick's health struggle live on air

This Morning viewers were quick to show their support for host Cat Deeley as she shared her husband's struggle with shingles.

While presenting alongside Ben Shephard, the conversation veered towards the topic of shingles and its impact on the over-50s. Cat revealed that her husband, RTE Late Late Show presenter Patrick, initially had no clue he was suffering from shingles, mistaking it for an irritation caused by their home renovations.

Cat detailed the ordeal, saying: "He thought he'd touched his face. He'd got this burning, tingling, stinging sensation, so that's what he thought it was."

Doctor Sara Kayat was on hand to outline the warning signs: "Firstly you tend to get this tingly, burning sensation. You may also notice you're feeling more fatigued you've got a headache, you're tired. You might even have a bit of a temperature."

The rash then progresses, which Cat recognised when she added: "A few days later you can start to develop a blotchy rash and then that develops into fluid-filled blisters, which start to crust over and scab away," according to Belfast Live.

One viewer opened up about their own painful shingles incident saying: "I got shingles about 3 months ago, lasted for about 6 weeks, it was bloody horrible!" Another agreeing added: "Shingles is quite possibly the worst pain ever. I had it as a 13 year old on my crotch. Pus filled blisters lasting weeks. Wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy." A fellow viewer sympathised with Cat's husband: "I feel for Cat's husband, shingles is awful!"

However, during the discussion, Dr Saras was hit by a technical mishap when her earpiece unexpectedly popped out. Quick-thinking Ben leapt into action, quipping: "Sara, your earpiece has popped out and it's looking like some sort of alien. You need that so they can tell you where we are!"

Fully appreciative of Ben's assistance, Sara replied with gratitude, while Ben reassured her: "We're all on time at the minute, don't worry!"
