Kate Garraway documentary: Star thanks fans after positive reaction

Kate Garraway has thanked fans for their “love” after her Finding Derek documentary.

The presenter‘s husband Derek Draper has been in hospital since March last year as he battles the after-effects of COVID-19.

The ITV programme documented Derek’s health battle over the last 12 months as Kate gave viewers a personal insight.

What did Kate Garraway say about reaction to the documentary?

In a message to GMB, which was read out by her co-stars Susanna Reid and Ben Shephard, Kate wanted to thank fans “for all the love”.

Susanna said: “Also we have to say, Kate has been in touch. She wants to say a huge thank you for all of the love this morning.

“There has been a huge response to Finding Derek last night, hasn’t there Ben?

“We know so many of you have been touched by her story.

“We have spoken to Kate and she will be back in tomorrow morning for Thursday’s show.”

She wants to say a huge thank you for all of the love this morning.

The presenter added: “But she says she is reading every single message and she is really grateful for the support.”

It comes after viewers praised Kate for the documentary and some defended the star after trolls made comments about her house.

Kate explained in the documentary that she was renovating her home to ensure it was perfect for Derek when he returns home.

However, some trolls criticised her house and called it ‘messy’.

Many viewers slammed the comments and took to Twitter to defend Kate.

One person said in response to a troll: “Says more about you than Kate when you watched such a heartbreaking programme and that’s what you took from it!”

Another added: “Pathetic! Absolutely pathetic!”

A third wrote in reply to another troll: “Where do you think she gets the time considering she’s under considerable stress?!”

Viewers shower Kate with love

Despite the trolls, Kate received an outpouring of love as the show aired.

Many praised Kate’s “remarkable” strength and branded her an “inspiration”.

One said: “Wow Kate Garraway is quite remarkable… in awe of her strength.”

Another gushed: “@kategarraway What an extraordinarily strong person you are! Just watched #FindingDerek and my god – you and your family are an absolute inspiration. Stay strong.”

Kate Garraway has revealed her husband Derek Draper is in hospital battling coronavirus.

The Good Morning Britain favourite also has symptoms and she is self-isolating at home with the couple’s two children.

Earlier this week, Kate was checked in hospital for coronavirus.

She was tested after speaking to the show’s Dr Hilary Jones after suffering from bloodshot eyes – a symptom of the virus.

Kate tested negative and reassured worried fans it was just an eye infection.

However, she is now exhibiting “mild” symptoms.

A source told The Sun that Derek, however, has been in hospital since Monday (March 30).

Kate is said to be “sick with worry” about Derek, who is thought to be seriously ill.

“This is a desperate situation for Kate who is sick with worry about Derek’s health. He is intensive care battling coronavirus and she is beside herself,” a source said.

“Kate has symptoms herself too but they are mild so she is self-isolating at home with the kids,”

The pair are parents to son William and daughter Darcey.

Intensive care

“She is obviously off TV too. Everyone at GMB is so worried for her,” the source concluded.

Kate’s spokesperson confirmed the news and said Derek remains in intensive care.

“Kate’s husband, Derek Draper, has been taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive care with a confirmed case of COVID-19,” a statement said.

“He was admitted on Monday and has since tested positive for the virus,” it added.

“Kate hasn’t been tested, however, she has also been displaying mild symptoms, also since Monday,” it said.

As a result, Kate has been on “strict isolation with her children at home”.

Mixing with Prince Charles

Last month, Kate shared her fears that she had caught the virus from Prince Charles.

She met him at a Prince’s Trust event just days before he was diagnosed with the virus.

Kate said: “I actually saw him on the 11th of March. It was the first day he’d stopped shaking hands, and we did the namaste greeting at the Prince’s Trust.”

She added at the time: “I don’t have any symptoms, so I’m not blaming him for anything at all, but people are going to be concerned. He’s a man that meets a lot of people.”
