Kate Garraway, 53, revealed she asked for extra sugar in her coffee as she hadn’t slept well as she continues to present Good Morning Britain while husband Derek Draper remains in hospital. Kate has been juggling caring for her children and hosting the ITV morning show while she awaits news on her husband’s condition after he became one of the longest-suffering Covid patients in the UK.
The presenter has been very open about struggling to stay on top of her commitments while Derek remains in hospital.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, she told co-host Ben she needed some “extra sugar” to help her get through the day.
“Good morning to all our viewers, there is a lot in the programme today!” Ben began.
Kate added: “There is a lot going on with my hair this morning as well, Ben.
“I did say to our team please could you put some extra sugar in my coffee this morning, I am going to need it.
“I haven’t had a lot of sleep, the hair has exploded, it’s going to be a fun morning for you, Ben.”
Her comments came after she clashed with guest Dominique Samuels on Tuesday’s episode over vaccine passports.
Kate fumed as she insisted sacrifices must be made to protect those who are vulnerable as Dominique complained it would impact people’s freedom.
Kate explained: “I understand the point you are driving at there are people that are fearful of the vaccine, there are people who don’t want to take the vaccine, but we’re all in a situation where we’re all having to do things we’d rather not do.
“We don’t want to stay at home, we don’t want to be in lockdown, we don’t want to wear masks, a lot of people don’t want to do all sorts of things.
“We’d love to be able to see our loved ones, we can’t, we’d love to be able to visit people in hospital, there are many many sacrifices people are making and the argument would be that if you choose not to have the vaccine that is your choice, but your choice has consequences.”

Kate took some time off earlier in the year after “feeling unwell” as she feared for husband Derek, who she’s been unable to visit.
The latest lockdown restrictions have meant Kate and children, Darcy and Billy, have been unable to see Derek since Christmas.
She explained earlier this month: “A lot of people have been very concerned. I’ve taken some time off.
“On ITV they’ve very kindly given me some time off. I haven’t been feeling very well.
“I think it might be one of those things where chickens come home to roost after a long year that we’ve all had.
“I just took some holiday leave – at home, I know holidays are controversial – within the four walls of my home.
“I had a lot of sleep and a bit of medicine and feeling much better, thank you.”
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays on ITV at 6am.
