Kate Garraway spotted for first time since announcing TV break

Kate Garraway has been spotted for the first time since taking a break from TV to care for husband, Derek Draper.

The presenter was last on our screens earlier this month, announcing she will be having some time out as Derek remains in hospital.

On Wednesday, she was spotted popping out with her daughter Darcey in London to run errands.

The pair got in a bit of shopping, heading to Pets At Home.

Kate was dressed casually, in a short denim jacket and a blue floral print dress, carrying her purse in one hand, as she chatted to her teenage daughter.

Appearing alongside co presenter Alex Beresford last week, Kate made the surprise announcement about her break thanking fans for their continued support for her and her family.

‘I’m taking a bit of time off to help [son] Billy get ready for secondary school and my other children, she explained, ‘and also Derek, look after that.

‘I just want to say thank you to all of you at home, for being absolutely brilliant since I’ve come back through troubling times.’

She also thanked her Good Morning Britain colleagues for being there for her.

Kate added: ‘Everyone talks about ITV and television being a brutal business, but it’s not. It’s a family.’

Alex told her: ‘You know we’ve all got your back on the show.’

Derek has been in hospital since March after contracting coronavirus, and while he is now free of the deadly bug he’s battling complications it has caused.

Kate previously shared that she was also ill with COVID-19 shortly before he went into hospital.

The presenter had stepped in for main hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid as they took their summer break in July.
