Gloria Hunniford calls Kate Garraway’s marriage confession “pathetic”

She didn't hold back!

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway recently admitted making her husband Derek jealous is the secret to their happy marriage.

During Monday's edition of Loose Women, the panellists discussed Kate's confession and Gloria Hunniford didn't seem impressed at all.

Andrea McLean introduced the topic saying: "Our friend at GMB, Kate Garraway, has admitted that the secret to her happy 12-year marriage to Derek isn’t staring into each other’s eyes or romantic date nights, or even rating each other out of ten...

"Controversially, it’s making Derek jealous on purpose from time to time, just to remind him, as she says ‘I’m alive and someone might actually fancy me’.

"Do we think this is a good idea?"

Gloria wasted no time in revealing what she thought of Kate's admission.

She replied: "See, I love Kate, but I think that’s pathetic.

“Because I think to play games, I mean it would be different if you were 18 or 19 to play games like that, but what is Kate? 51?

“To be still playing games making your husband jealous or to make yourself feel good because you think somebody else fancies you.

See, I love Kate, but I think that’s pathetic.

“I mean to me, that’s just the road to nowhere."

Andrea asked: "But what if it's just a little bit of banter?"

Gloria replied: "Oh, I don't know," before asking fellow panellist Strictly Come Dancing star Chizzy Akudolu what she thought.

Chizzy said: "I would have to have a husband to be able to answer this question."

Coleen Nolan then joked: "Oh don't worry about that, I've had two!"

Gloria went on to say that she believes in both good and bad jealously.

She said: "There's good and bad jealously. If I saw a woman engaging with my husband for too long [I'd question it].

"But I have said this in the past and I think if you’re in a nice relationship you do get jealous because you really love that person and you really care."

Gloria added: "But I know a lot of relationships have broken up because of bad jealousy."

Kate made her admission as she opened up about relationships and her sex life in the Mail On Sunday's You magazine.

She said: "Sex now is far more enjoyable than when I was in my 20s. I would approach them as though they were job interviews, trying to wow the man."

Kate, 51, added: "I was putting on a show, doing all sorts of crazy acrobatics trying to be a great lover and look perfect at the same time.

"All my energy was going into the performance, very little into how I was feeling about the whole experience."
