Kate Garraway shares joyful playfight with son amid husband Derek's Covid battle


Kate Garraway has shared a sweet insight to home life as she has a playfight with her 11-year-old son Billy, after he tried to dupe her over home schooling.

The cheeky chap spoke into the camera to say that he was telling his mother that he was doing online schooling, when in fact he was watching television.

The 53-year-old Good Morning Britain presenter then walks in on him to catch him red-handed as he balances on the arm of a sofa.

It is a joyous moment in what has been a dark few months for Kate, who has been unable to see her husband Derek, who is still in intensive care fighting the effects of coronavirus.

Fans were loving that for the moments caught on the video, which Kate shared, she was embracing the moment as she reprimanded her son before he chases her from their open plan kitchen and lounge area, with a toy lightsaber.

Billy filmed the clip and after setting up the camera, he says: “Today I’m going to be climbing on this, don’t tell anyone but I’m supposed to be online schooling but I’m watching TV.”

As he climbs on the sofa, Kate can be heard asking: “Bill, are you actually doing any work?”

Billy cheekily replies: “Yes”, but Kate is not convinced and shouts back: “Are you sure?”

She then walks in and catches him red-handed, playfully shouting at him: “You’re not!”

As she throws a couple of balls at him, Billy screams: “What the hell!”

At this point, he reaches for his lightsaber and chases a squealing Kate out of the kitchen.

The TV presenter captioned the adorable clip: “Where have you got to with home schooling in your house ? This is where we are! Think it was me that learnt a lesson here – don’t mess with an 11 yr old with a light sabre!!!

“So glad it’s #friday tomorrow join us on @gmb from 6 for all the latest #covid news, #love in #lockdown with @joeyessex AND a debate on #burntout parents!”

Kate returned to Good Morning Britain on Thursday morning and told viewers that she had been away for a while as she had been struggling to sleep.

Stricter rules due to lockdown had meant that she hasn’t been able to visit Derek for months and it has taken its toll.

She said: “I haven’t been able to see him since Christmas, we’re back into situation of looking at strangers in masks.

“That’s the situation for everybody at the moment. It’s tough. When you’re someone like him, dealing with a consciousness problem and trying to emerge, I can’t help but fear it’s not helpful.

“There’s no end in sight to that. There’s no one to blame or be angry with. It’s tough.”
