Kate Garraway husband: Lorraine Kelly ‘upset’ over COVID-19 rule breakers as Derek remains in hospital

She's so proud of her pal Kate

Kate Garraway has been praised by Lorraine Kelly as her husband Derek Draper remains in hospital.

The ITV presenter, 61, hit out at people breaking coronavirus rules amid what Kate is going through.

Kate’s husband Derek has been hospitalised for almost a year after suffering from coronavirus.

He was rushed to hospital in March of last year and tested positive for COVID-19.

The author and former lobbyist was put into an induced coma for months.

She wrote: “When I interviewed Kate she was able to come to the studios because we’re all in a bubble at work.

“But we were talking about Derek and I just wanted to give her a big cuddle. Because of what happened to her, it brought it home to all of us at work just how serious this is.

Lorraine is ‘so upset’ at rule breakers

“That’s why I get so upset when I see people having raves and not wearing their masks, and all of these crazy theorists who say the pandemic’s not a real thing.”

This is not the first time Lorraine has shared her annoyance at those not sticking to COVID-19 rules or guidelines.

Back in December of last year she told celebrities to ‘[bleep] themselves’ that were enjoying foreign holidays during the pandemic.

Her rant on The Last Leg began with: “Flying to other side of the world to spend two weeks in a five-star hotel with 24 hour room service and stunning views [bleep] yourself stupid.”

She continued: “To all of us that sacrificed so much this year – I wish you a very merry Christmas and prosperous 2021.

“Unless of course you are a celebrity who broke the rules of lockdown in that case you can go [bleep] yourself.”

Lorraine also wrote in her Hello! column of how greatly she admires Kate’s strength.

Here she wrote: “She comes to work at GMB in the early morning. She is always a total professional. And just gets on with trying to make life as normal as possible for her kids.

“Kate has never lost hope and like all of us cannot wait for the day that Derek is well enough to go home.”
