Cat Deeley has revealed that she and her husband Patrick Kielty are thinking about leaving the US after Kielty and their son Milo were caught up in a "shooter scare".

The So You Think You Can Dance host left Britain 13 years ago but said returning home could be on the cards after a recent terrifying ordeal.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph's Stella magazine, Deeley described how about a month ago she texted Kielty when he and their three-year-old son Milo had not returned from a "father-and-son lunch".

She said: "I texted Paddy and got a message saying 'I'll text you back'.

"Then, maybe after 20 minutes, I heard from him. They had been in a Shake Shack... and there was a shooter scare.

"Everyone was either told to lie behind the counter or pushed into the loos. People were screaming and crying.

"Then as they were all hiding, the FBI turned up with guns."

She added: "Paddy kept Milo calm - he didn't really know what was going on - and in the end it just turned out to be a suspect package.

"But Milo is three years old - something like that has happened to him."

The 42-year-old television presenter continued: "The gun laws in America are crazy ... there are so many shootings".

Deeley, who also shares one-year-old son James with Northern Irish comedian Kielty, added: "You live in America and then you wake up and one day Donald Trump is your president. And you are a mother, you have children and you are in a country where the NRA [National Rifle Association] has all the power.

"You go to look at schools and the first questions people ask are about security, and there are gun-shooter drills instead of fire drills. Then something happens and you start to live with fear."

The TV star said they are considering a move closer to home, but there are issues there due to Brexit.

"It's something we are thinking about", she said. "It's going to be a tough decision. We are based there, but Paddy mainly works here, so he goes back and forth, but we 
can reverse that… Things change when you have children and when you think Trump may get in for a second term.

She continued: "But then over here we've got Brexit. If we moved to Ireland there’s the border situation. It’s all a bit of a mess right now. We are just trying to figure things out. But 
I know my mum will be very happy if we come back home."

Deeley and Kielty have been married since 2012.
