This Morning’s Cat Deeley reveals her husband Patrick Kielty’s ‘mystery’ health woes as she reveals he thought he had ‘fibreglass’ in his face

Cat Deeley has opened up about her husband Patrick Kielty’s current health woes on This Morning on Monday.

The presenter, 47, was speaking about shingles with Dr Sara Kayat and her co-host Ben Shephard, who revealed one in three adults will get shingles in their lifetime.

While the trio discussed the symptoms of shingles, which most people struggle to identify, Cat revealed Patrick, 53, currently has the disease. 

Cat explained: ‘So, my husband’s got it, at the moment, and one of the things was…he didn’t know what the symptoms were. Or, he didn’t spot them. He actually thought he’d got fibreglass in his face.’

Fibreglass is a type of fibre-reinforced plastic made from glass fibre. For this reason, it is also known as glass-reinforced plastic or glass fibre-reinforced plastic.

Cat continued: ‘Because he’d been shifting things at the house that’s under construction at the moment. And then, he thought he’d touched his face.

‘So, he’d got like this burning, tingling, stinging sensation, but that’s what he thought it was.’ 

Shingles is a painful condition affecting mainly the skin, but sometimes the eyes, and caused by the same virus behind chicken pox. 

The illness manifests in a rash and can be caught by anyone.

At Cat’s request, Sara told viewers the symptoms of shingles. She said: ‘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.’

‘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.’

Cat added: ‘They can be on the trunk of your body. [Patrick] has got them on his face, actually!’

Sara confirmed they can be ‘anywhere’ – including the genitals and around the eyes. 

Cat married Patrick, who hosts RTÉ One’s The Late Late Show and presented the original series of Love Island, in 2012.

They have two children together, both of them boys: Miles Kielty, eight, and James Patrick Kielty, six.

From 2002 to 2003, Cat and Patrick co-hosted Fame Academy, and they lived in the US for several years while Cat presented So You Think You Can Dance.

In May, Cat made a shock bedroom confession while she and Ben were discussing whether or not separate bedrooms are the key to a happy marriage.

To aid their discussion, Cat and Ben were joined by Linda Lusardi and married couple Emma and Kevin – who choose to sleep in separate bedrooms.

Speaking about her own bedroom arrangements, Cat revealed she and Patrick sleep in separate rooms for most of the week.

She explained: ‘It’s one of those things that because of our schedule here [This Morning], from Monday to Thursday I sleep in the guest bedroom and the rest of the time I’m back. Because otherwise I get up at 5am and I want to fall asleep earlier.’
