She’s had a tough year after her husband Derek’s battle with coronavirus.

But Kate Garraway looked in high spirits as she headed back to Smooth Radio in central London for the first time since her family drama on Monday morning.

The presenter, 53, looked like a ray of sunshine in a pink suit as she strutted into Global Studios.

The Good Morning Britain presenter caught the eye in the salmon flared trousers and jacket from Next which she teamed with a pink and white tie-collar blouse from LK Bennett. 

Kate completed the look with nude heels and green hoop earrings as she beamed and waved for the camera.

She wore her blonde tresses in a chic bob and looked radiant in a natural covering of makeup.

Kate took a break from work to spend time with her children and husband, Derek Draper, who remains in intensive care as he continues to recover from COVID-19.

But last week she announced she would be returning to her Smooth Radio show so that Derek ‘can hear my voice as well as many of the songs we both love.’ 

She will record her show from 10am to 1pm everyday this week, after her friend Myleene Klass filled in for her during her break.

Derek, 53, was hospitalised back in March after suffering complications from contracting COVID-19, and has remained there since.   

Last Thursday the TV star revealed how she celebrated her 15th wedding anniversary with Derek after being unable to visit him in hospital. 

Speaking on last Friday’s Good Morning Britain, she revealed she was able see him later in the day, but admitted it felt ‘strange’ as Derek is in a limited consciousness state.

Kate revealed: ‘We did our best to make it special. We had him on FaceTime. We raised a glass to say happy anniversary.

‘I have a card to take to read to him. He was a prolific card writer for birthdays. He’d always remember. And hopefully he’ll do it again.

‘It will be strange reading to him, but this time I have made a bit more of an effort.’

Derek is now in a limited consciousness and is unable to talk – but can hear things. His carers have been playing GMB on TV for him, while Kate is on. 

Kate returned to the studio having taken time out to settle her children into school, after what has been a challenging six months for the family.

She shares Darcey, 14, and William, 11, with Derek.

Derek is one of an estimated just five people in the world whose bodies have been damaged so much by Covid. 

He has survived but for how long – or even if he can recover – the doctors can’t say as his condition constantly fluctuates. 

Kate contracted coronavirus herself at the same time as Derek, but made a full recovery.
