Speaking on ITV breakfast show GMB, Kate said: "It was that moment when you suddenly think, 'I can't control the car'."

Posting about the moment to her 918,000 Instagram followers, Kate wrote: "Thanks to our amazing saviours Liz & Mark from @kentpoliceuk who rescued me after a full tyre blow out on the motorway!!!

"Never had one before – utterly terrifying. Managed to keep control of car but couldn't get off motorway as no hard shoulder & when the AA said they couldn't come for an hour, then rang after half an hour to say might still be an hour had no choice but to call the police.
