“You knew but you didn’t tell me and it was right at the end of the afternoon when I’d completely unravelled. My false eyelashes were coming off.

“I was quite good on the drink, but I’d just generally unravelled.”

However, it was the video that was shown at the awards – and to viewers during the show – that got her colleagues talking.

Throwback from the 1980s

The video showed her throughout her career, starting with her stint as a newsreader on Central in the late-1980s.

It’s safe to say that Kate Garraway looks very different on GMB!

Ben and Susanna couldn’t believe how much Kate, with dark hair, looked like her 15-year-old daughter.

“That is a little bit of Darcey, isn’t it,” Susanna said looking at a freeze-frame of her early days.

“Isn’t that amazing,” Kate responded. “Because I never think we look alike.”

“She’ll be horrified!”
