Good Morning Britain: Kate Garraway in frantic dash to studio after oversleeping

She had to make a quick dash to the studio this morning.

Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway had to make a quick dash to work this morning after sleeping through her alarm.

The GMB presenter woke up two hours later than planned this morning when she didn’t get up at her usual time to make it in to present the show.

Kate told co-host Richard Bacon: “You almost didn’t see me this morning, I overslept dramatically by two hours.

“Quarter past two I normally set my alarm because I like to come in, have a cup of tea and go through everything.”

However, after not getting up when her alarm went off, she had to rush to avoid missing her presenting slot.

“But I got in the car at about twenty past four. There are a lot of nervous producers around this morning.”

She said: “Derek’s family are descending to take care of Derek for a few days while I take the kids away.

“I was just thinking, wouldn’t it be wonderful if Derek was well enough to come. Wouldn’t it be wonderful.”
