The heartwarming smile from husband Derek that Kate Garraway feared she might never witness again
This morning, viewers were stunned to see Kate Garraway overcome with emotion on Good Morning Britain as her husband, Derek Draper, made a surprise appearance on the ITV show. The presenter, 52, looked delighted as her husband of 15 years, 51, walked into the studio at the end of the show to present her with a bunch of flowers. But viewers were left in tears as they saw Derek then break down in an emotional embrace with his wife. Kate had been discussing the news that she had just become a grandmother the day before, when the camera cut to a photo of her with Derek at their wedding.
Kate Garraway has revealed how her husband Derek’s battle with a ‘devastating’ stroke left the TV presenter fearing she may never see his ‘heartbreakingly familiar’ smile again. The 47-year-old This Morning star has told how she struggled to cope with the aftermath of her husband’s stroke just months after the couple had celebrated the birth of their third child. And in an emotional interview with Grazia magazine, Kate revealed how she feared she might never see her husband’s trademark smile again. The broadcaster, who married Derek in 1997, told the magazine: ‘I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to it. I still have my happy-go-lucky husband back but I don’t have the Derek I married, the one I fell in love with. He’s still there but I miss him so much.’
Kate Garraway feared she would never see her husband Derek smile again after he was left unable to talk or walk following a cycling accident. The Good Morning Britain presenter, 53, had to look on in horror as her husband was rushed to hospital with a suspected broken neck after being hit by a car while cycling in Richmond Park, London.
