Kate Garraway reveals Christmas Day 'disaster' with the kids after Derek Draper's 'scare'

KATE Garraway has revealed a series of moments that threatened to ruin Derek Draper's first Christmas at home since he was struck with Covid.

The Good Morning Britain presenter told fans about her tough 24 hours, before saying it had the "perfect" ending.

Sharing a rare snap of her husband with their children Darcey, 15, and Billy, 12, Kate said she was feeling "grateful" for family time after Derek suffered a "scare" on Christmas Eve.

The 54-year-old went on to confess she "burnt the parsnips" and bought the "wrong" Lego for her son Billy.

Derek also risked being admitted into hospital and struggled to stay awake throughout Christmas Day.

But the day ended with the family-of-four all together watching a film at home with Derek, insisting "everything feels suddenly perfect".

"So the last 24 hours has been bumpy – a scare that meant Derek might have had to go back into hospital (thankfully sorted by a visit from nurse/carer)," she told fans on Instagram.

"He has also had one of his ultra fatigue days so has been too weak to do much other than sleep.

"I burnt the parsnips ( Darceys favourite ) & got the “wrong” Lego for Billy.

"But now snuggled up around Dad’s bed watching #nativity everything feels suddenly perfect.

"Feel so grateful to have the chance to be together.

"Sending love & hoping you have found some joy today whatever your circumstances – #merrychristmas all!"
