Kate Garraway news: GMB host issues update on her kids
On GMB today (Tuesday, April 5), Kate and her co-host Adil Ray, who is on all this month, chatted with TV’s Bear Grylls.
The daredevil asked Kate how she was doing, in light of Derek’s situation.
He said on the programme: “I think lockdown has been very hard for so many people.
“I look at this year and if have learned anything, it’s that storms come and go. When you’re in them, they can seem intense but they don’t last forever and it will pass.”
He added: “We are all cheering for you… how are your children?”
Kate told him they wouldn’t have enough time to “go into it”.
But she reassured Bear and viewers that her children – Darcey, 15, and William, 11 – were doing as well as could be expected.
So hard that it’s the second we’ve lived through in lockdown/restrictions and of course our second without Derek home.
Kate said: “I don’t think we have enough time to go into that but all is as good as it can be, thank you.”
Kate’s second Easter without Derek at home
On Sunday, Kate posted an uplifting Easter message tinged with sadness.
She shared a photo of her neighbour, Suzy, who had baked them a cake.
In the caption, she wrote: “#happyeaster everyone – so hard that it’s the second we’ve lived through in lockdown/restrictions and of course our second without Derek home with us.
“But he is still here so we have so much to give thanks for and there’s lots to hope for isn’t there. Our day started with sun shining and our wonderful neighbour, who we call ‘Cakesuzy’, bringing round the most amazing #easter cake ever she had made herself!”
