Caught cold with real shivers (8)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

collared

'caught' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'cold with real shivers' is the wordplay.
'with' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'shivers' indicates anagramming the letters (I've seen 'shivering' mean this).
'real' with letters rearranged gives 'lare'.
'cold' enclosing 'lare' is 'COLLARED'.

(Other definitions for collared that I've seen before include "Captured" , "Apprehended (colloq.)" , "like some doves and peccaries" , "Arrested" , "like certain doves" .)
