Kate Garraway has spoken out about her fears over spending Christmas without her husband Derek Draper as he remains in hospital following his battle with coronavirus.

The 53 year old, whose family car was recently stolen from outside her house, opened up about the festive season while on Good Morning Britain on Friday morning as she explained feeling "physically sick" by the thought of it.

Referring to her co-star and pal Lorraine Kelly, 60, after she demanded the government to cancel Christmas, Kate said: "We saw Lorraine yesterday on the show saying, 'It's such a muddle, will somebody make a decision?' and I think part of the problem is people are trying to arm themselves with information to stay safe."

The TV presenter went on to share her own worries over the special day as it will be the first Christmas she and her children Darcey, 14, and Billy, 11, will have spent without Derek, 53.

Kate continued: "I'm very conflicted about Christmas, I've got to be honest with you.

"I feel physically sick actually and I can sort of feel my chest tightening up at the thought of it, in a total panic about the idea of Darcey, Billy and myself on our own at Christmas, unable to visit Derek because of potentially restrictions and that huge emotional hole. I don't know how to fill it."

"She’s incredibly resilient. Some people would've crumbled by now, but this is going to make her stronger.

"The uncertainty eats her alive, but she doesn't want that to transition to them [the kids]. She's doing an amazing job of keeping them buoyant and positive.

"They're doing amazingly well – they all have that inner Garraway strength, which has sustained Kate over so many months."
