Kate Garraway was presented with a heartfelt message by children Darcey and Billy as she collected the special award at the TRIC Awards on Wednesday.

The Good Morning Britain host has had a tough 18 months, with husband Derek Draper spending more than a year in hospital fighting for his life, after being diagnosed with coronavirus last March.

She was thanked by her children in a poignant message after collecting a trophy at the ceremony, in London.

Following a emotional speech of her own, she returned to the audience as Roman Kemp revealed there were two others who wanted to congratulate her on the win.

Darcey, 15, then appeared on screen with her younger brother, 12, beginning: ’Hi mum! I just want to say thank you so much for everything you do for me and Bill.

‘We’re so proud of you!’

‘I’m completely swept away by that, thank you so much,’ she began. ‘It’s been tough for everybody and so many people have said today how amazing it is that television stayed on air, radio kept going, all the production teams and all those people involved and it’s so true.

‘But, it’s not just those, it’s all the rest of you in the room. It’s the people that make the TVs, lay the cables, the people that sponsor the events – all of you keep going.

‘We’re all in this amazing industry which I’ve always considered to be a huge honour to be part of, to be able tell people’s stories, help them to tell theirs, hold people to account and just generally be part of something extraordinary.’

Kate’s win comes just a week after she was honoured with a gong at the National Television Awards, for her documentary on Derek’s illness, and his return to their family home.

And, chatting to the Sun at the bash, she revealed they would be fronting another programme on his health.

‘We are going to make another documentary – there are plans for more,’ she confirmed.

‘Derek has a very short window of energy, but we are trying. He has been home for four months now and it was enough for him being home.

‘Now we are really hoping we can have more and more people in to see him.’
