On Sunday, Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway had a close shave as her tyre blew out on the motorway during a family trip.
The star was left shaken after the she had headed out on her first family trip away without husband Derek Draper, who is currently in hospital, and her tire was severely damaged and in shreds.
The 53 year old star was also with her children Darcey, 14, and Billy, 11 when the near miss happened.
Kate took to Instagram to thank the police for coming to the rescue and sharing with her 916k followers what actually happened with photographs of the damage.
The former X Factor contestant 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.
“They were so brilliant and got us to safety and we are now on way home in taxi, shaken but safe, tow truck on way to car.
“It’s first time have taken kids out without Derek too, but we are safe and will update you fully on @gmb with @benshephardofficial tomorrow from 6 a.m.”
The scary incident comes after Kate’s husband Derek has been in hospital since March when he contracted coronavirus.
He still remains very ill, however on Tuesday morning the star shared a hopeful update with Good Morning Britain viewers.
She said: “He is stable and actually yesterday I spoke to the nurses and they said they had put Good Morning Britain on.
“And they felt he looked, because his eyes are open, he looked focused… He looked focused and engaged on it.”
The presenter then jokingly said to co-host Ben Shephard: “They didn’t say whether it was me or you’, and but then admitted that she found the update “very emotional”.
She continued: “We don’t know whether it’s the movement of the light, or whether it’s the familiar voice. So, good morning, Derek, if you are watching.
“We’re all sending you lots of love, everyone here is sending you lots of love. So there you go, your own personal Good Morning Britain.”
