KATE Garraway’s mum was rushed to hospital on their family holiday after breaking her foot.
The Good Morning Britain presenter, whose husband Derek Draper battled Covid last year, opened up about her fresh heath scare on Instagram today.
She praised the NHS in a post to fans, saying her mum recieved treatment after a tumble on her way to the beach.
Kate, 54, shared: “Just when you thought (hoped!) I hadn’t had a new reason to thank the #nhs recently cue an unfortunate tumble from my mum on the way to the beach & and a broken foot and twisted ankle.
“Thanks to the typically wonderful #nhs team at #bodmin hospital and particularly wonderful Ruth we managed to get her booted and safely home for further treatment.
“You were all so kind – thank you so much. And thanks to @peugeotuk (again) for lending us a car with enough room for her to keep her leg stretched out for the whole journey (although it did mean my Dad was relegated for the first time ever to the back seat , where he really enjoyed defining the expression “back seat driver”!!! )”
