Kate Garraway, 53, has been through hell and back over the past year and a half, after her husband Derek Draper contracted coronavirus in March 2020. The Good Morning Britain presenter and the couple’s two children Darcey and Billy, have had to come to terms with a new way of life, as Derek continues to fight the long-term effects of the virus.
Throughout it all, Kate has been a pillar of strength and one that the whole country has got behind and offered their full support to.
She has kept it together through various interviews and the award-winning ITV documentary Finding Derek, but she confessed she hasn’t really let herself cry properly about it all.
In a new interview with Piers Morgan‘s wife Celia Walden for Stella Magazine, the mum-of-two admitted she’s not ready to see a therapist for fear of “opening the floodgates”.
“I mean I still haven’t really cried,” she shrugged.
“I still feel acutely sorry for the friends whose businesses have gone under, for example.
“I also get why people feel they should be allowed to make decisions about their own bodies.”
Pausing, she wondered if people would see it differently if they were on the other side.
“But all I would say to those people is, ‘Come and spend an hour in our house,'” she said.
