Kate said working with Mia was 'extraordinary' and that she was 'blown away' by her performance.

Speaking to Sunday with Laura Kuenssberg, Kate said: ''It was extraordinary, and she would have days where she'd say "I can't think of anything, I don't know what to say, I don't know what I'm going to do."
