She explained that it wouldn’t be all about her and that some of her friends would also be appearing on the show with her.

However, GMB viewers clearly didn’t get Kate’s memo.

And instead took to Twitter to bemoan “yet another sympathy show for her”.

Fans ‘feel for what Kate Garraway and her husband have been though’ but…

After Kate spoke about the show on Good Morning Britain today, fans took to social media to offer their verdict on the show, which will debut on ITV on Saturday mornings this spring.

One said: “Sorry but Monday to Friday is enough for me Kate.”

A second added: “Don’t get me wrong I like Kate and what her family have been through over the past two years is terrible. But please not another programme. Enough now.”

A third echoed the same sentiments and said: “I know Kate Garraway has medical bills for husband Derek but how many more shows can she have?”

Another said: “Oh Lord. More #KateGarraway on TV? Do the people who make these decisions actually watch her on TV or read social media comments about her presenting?

“Seems like yet another sympathy show for her,” they added cruelly.

However, loyal Kate fans had her back – and actually predicted the social media assault on the presenter.

One said: “I should imagine the timeline is full of Kate Garraway haters right now with no better way to occupy their mornings other than to rant about somebody they don’t even know.”
