Kate Garraway stuns on return to work at Smooth FM as she thanks fans for support


Kate Garraway put on a brave face as she returned to work on Smooth FM on Monday Morning for the first time since March.

With husband Derek Draper slowly recovering from his serious illness from Covid-19, Kate looked happier than ever to return to Smooth Radio Studios as she strutted her stuff in a colourful two-piece suit.

The former I’m A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! Finalist turned heads before she got back to business in a striking salmon co-ord which did wonders to showcase her amazing figure.

Kate paired the pink suit with a daring stripped blouse which featured billowing sleeves and an elegant neck-tie.

The much-loved telly star beamed as she smiled ear-to-ear while posing up a storm for the cameras.

Upon her long-awaited return to the radio show, Kate thanked her supporters for always being there.

She gushed: “It's so nice not just to hear your support for me personally but how much you love the show.”

It’s been an incredibly tough few months for Kate as her beloved husband Derek Draper continues to recover from Covid-19, which he contracted earlier this year.

Derek, 53, still remains in hospital but has awoken from his coma and is recovering from the extensive damage the virus has done.

The pair recently celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary, but sadly, Kate was unable to go see her sick husband on their special day.

Kate was left Good Morning Britain viewers heartbroken when she told hosts Susanna Reid and Adil Ray: "It's actually Derek and I's wedding anniversary today, unbelievably.

“15 years today - Richard and Hilary were there on the day, I think. But yeah, what an extraordinary thing.

"I won't be able to see him today. I kind of hoped he would but it hasn't worked out that way for the visits. But maybe it would be a bit strange anyway.

"So yeah, it's a tough day but he's still here. There's not a huge amount that's changed."

The TV star recently revealed that she would be taking some time out to help son Billy and daughter Darcey return to school.
