TV presenter, Cat Deeley has revealed why she and husband, Patrick Kielty made the move back to the UK.
Cat married the Irish comedian in 2012 and they share two children together, Milo who is 4 and James, 2.
In a recent interview with Lorraine on ITV she shared the terrifying reason they made this big decision after living in LA for 14 years.
The terrifying incident was a mall shooting in the city whilst Patrick and their eldest son Milo were shopping; “The catalyst for it was definitely a moment when Paddy called me and him and Milo were stuck in a shopping mall.”
“I had to go and pick them up and I didn’t know quite where they were. There were helicopters and police vans and news crews, it was terrifying for me.”
“Everybody was safe and fine, it was completely ok, but it was terrifying for me.”
This isn’t the first time Cat has spoken about this ordeal. In an interview with YOU Magazine she shared that Patrick and Milo had to hide in a Shake Shack kitchen during the shooting.
“That danger became even more real last summer when Milo and his father went to the Century City Mall in LA after morning nursery.”
“The FBI turned up with guns and ordered everyone to take cover under counters or hide because a shooter was on the loose.”
“They shut down the centre. I got a call from Paddy, saying, ‘They’re taking us out through the fire exits but nobody can get to their car. If we walk to a junction, can you come and get us?’”
“It was terrifying. Paddy was shaken by it, more than Milo, who was hot and cranky but didn’t properly understand.”
