What did Kate Garraway say?

Earlier today (December 22), Kate tweeted: “Hi @skytv – I really hate to do this but can’t get through to anyone on phone for last 3 days.

“I’m sure you are frantic – but please can someone get in touch.

“We have no TV or WiFi for kids & me not having that in isolation over Xmas feels like final straw.”

What’s the latest with Kate’s husband Derek Draper?

It’s been a tough few months for Kate and her family, as Derek remains in hospital after battling coronavirus.

Last week, the star revealed she was worried her husband may spend Christmas alone following the introduction of new Tier 4 restrictions.

The presenter opened up on her fears whilst replying to a fan on social media.

Tweeting Kate, they wrote: “I truly hope in all of this @kategarraway and her children get to form a bubble and to see Derek. It’s hard for all of us, but harder for her as her situation is unique.”

“Not quite clear at the moment but thank you for thinking of me and the others in the same situation xxx.”

It came days after the star revealed it was her “dream” to visit Derek in hospital on December 25.

Derek, 53, was first taken into hospital in late March.
