Kate Garraway broke her toe running through intensive care
Good Morning Britain got off to a hysterical start as Kate Garraway and Ben Shephard were in peals of laughter.
The pair were introducing the morning ITV news show when Ben suddenly called out Kate for her less-than-fancy footwear, with the camera panning to her wearing trainers behind the desk.
Kate and Ben are close friends, and the mum-of-two burst into laughter as she accosted the Tipping Point host for embarrassing her, saying she had managed to get away with it for weeks before he was co-presenting with her.
She explained she had suffered a foot injury while in hospital – with Ben pointing out she was ‘in the right place’ to get an injury.
Explaining she was running ‘through intensive care,’ she said: ‘And I whacked my foot on one of those tables.
‘I was in absolute agony,’ she admitted.
‘But everyone around me was so ill, I had to pretend “No, I’m fine!” Because I felt so guilty!’
‘So I said nothing and went to the toilet and cried.’
Despite what sounds like a seriously painful and not all that funny experience, Kate was splitting herself laughing as Ben continued to goad her.
She added that it’s been a fairly long road to recovery, but she expects to be ‘back in court shoes’ by the time Britain gets ‘a new leader of the Conservative party.’
It’s been a difficult time for the Garraway family in recent years as Kate’s husband, Derek Draper, continues to suffer from complications of Covid-19.
Derek requires full-time care at home as he struggles to walk and talk, and has been hospitalised multiple times since contracting the virus in March 2020.
The presenter, 55, has released two documentaries on life with her husband since he became ill, and was recently shortlisted for a National Television Award for second doc Caring For Derek.
It shows the reality of caring for her husband following his battle with Covid-19 and the long-term health issues he was left with.
Derek – known to be Britain’s longest-serving hospital in-patient after contracting the virus – has suffered long-lasting damage to major organs as a result of the virus.
The family have adapted their home to continue to care for their husband and father.
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
