Devastating news for Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway

ANXIOUS telly favourite Kate Garraway has pulled out of hosting Good Morning Britain this week to be at her husband Derek’s bedside – after he was taken back to hospital.

Those close to the family said the 54-year-old remains “seriously unwell” – having struggled to overcome major health problems after he contracted Covid in 2020, and he has been rushed back for specialist care.

Derek eventually became the nation’s longest suffering patient after spending 13 months in hospital.

Devoted Kate, 55, is by his side in the hospital where Derek is being monitored by leading consultants.

The popular presenter, who also pulled out of her mid-morning radio show on Smooth FM, told just weeks ago how she had hoped he was improving after another stint on a hospital ward.

A source said: “Derek has been taken back to hospital this morning in a very serious condition.

“The family are very worried about him but Derek is in the best hands.”
