Kate Garraway is all smiles as she left radio job after emotional GMB appearance

KATE Garraway was all smiles as she left Smooth radio after her emotional Good Morning Britain appearance.

The TV star put on a brave face ahead of the emotional fly-on-the-wall documentary Finding Derek, which airs tonight.

Kate's husband Derek Draper, 53, is still in hospital after catchingcoronavirus a year ago and suffering heart failure.

The mum-of-two looked cheerful as she arrived for her mid-morning shift on Smooth radio and acknowledged fans as she climbed into a waiting car. 

Kate looked incredibly stylish in a mid-length blue plaid coat and bootcut jeans.

The GMB host ensured sure she stayed warm completing her look with a white scarf and matching boots. 

Kate appeared on GMB earlier today to discuss her heartbreaking new documentary about her husband's illness.

She revealed her husband Derek will need "specialist care" when he leaves hospital, but insisted that she won't quit her role on GMB.

Chatting to co-hosts Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid on her future plans, Kate, 53, said: "You can’t get rid of me that easily Shephard – I'm not going nowhere!

"I don’t think I ever really saw it as ever giving up work. I thought, right, I need to change my future as anyone who faces a long-term illness will do.

"To be honest being here has kept me sane – not just because you’re all amazing and supportive but everyone at home has been supportive – but because it's a slice of normal, it's a slice of life before."

As she reflected on the type of care her husband will need when he leaves hospital, Kate added: "The truth is as much as I may think I have the answers all the time, Derek doesn’t need me. I'm not the person to care for him.

"I obviously will be there 100 per cent completely if Derek needs me, but what he needs is specialist, professional, medical support ongoing – because there is a good chance that he can improve but we need to make sure the support is there now.

"I will sit there and hold his hands but people in his situation need expertise and I'm not an expert."

She will be seen tonight in her one-off TV documentary Finding Derek, discussing his fight for life with their children, Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11.

The couple married in 2005 after meeting just a year before, after being introduced by GMTV's then-political editor, Gloria De Piero.

Kate has been regularly updating people with Derek's progress since he caught Covid last year.

He was in a coma as the disease ravaged his liver, kidneys and heart.
