Kate Garraway 'doesn't know what's round the corner' with ill husband Derek's 'horrific' ordeal, says Charlotte Hawkins

KATE Garraway's GMB co-star says she "doesn't know what's round the corner" with her ill husband.

Charlotte Hawkins opened up about brave Kate's struggle behind the scenes since Derek Draper's coronavirus battle.

"It’s been horrific for her and her family," Charlotte told OK! Magazine.

"She's been going through such a tough time and she's continuing to go through a tough time.

"We don't know what's around the corner.

"Everybody at GMB is there for her in whatever way she needs."

Kate is currently on a break from presenting duties on Good Morning Britain.

In an emotional sign-off to viewers ten days ago, the 53-year-old presenter thanked viewers and her ITV colleagues for their support during this "challenging" time.

"I'm actually not here next week," Kate revealed.

"I'm taking a little bit of time off to help Billy get sorted for secondary school and Darcey as well to get into school and also – Derek, to look after things on that.

"I just want to say thank you all of you for being absolutely brilliant since I've come back through challenging times.

"To everyone here, all the people on-screen and off-screen, you've been amazing.

"One of the nice things is that everybody talks about ITV and television being a brutal business – but it's not.

"It's a proper family. You've all been amazing."
