Kate Garraway joined by daughter Darcey, 16, at NTAs as she gives Derek update

Kate Garraway was sweetly joined by her daughter Darcey, 16, on the 2022 National Television Awards red carpet on Thursday night.

The presenter, 55, is nominated for the Authored Documentary award for her powerful ITV documentary Kate Garraway: Caring for Derek.

Exclusively speaking to OK! on the red carpet, Kate said about being nominated and the ceremony: "I have mixed emotions in some ways because obviously we didn't want to be in a position where we had this story to tell but this is focused on Caring For Derek.

"This is for all the wonderful people around the country who are caring for people they love, it feels like it would be nice for them."

Kate also issued an update about husband Derek after she revealed earlier this week that he had been admitted to hospital again following complications caused by contracting sepsis earlier this year.

The 54 year old husband of the Good Morning Britain presenter has been battling health issues since catching Covid-19 in 2020. While he returned home to round-the-clock care in 2021, he's been in and out of the hospital ever since he contracted the virus.

Kate told OK! in an update: "He's had to go back into hospital but we're now on the right side of it so we hope he'll be coming home soon!

It comes after Kate recently shared she feels "depressed" while caring for her husband in a candid Instagram post for World Mental Health Day.

Speaking of her documentary, she told fans: "In the documentary, you saw me frustrated, depressed, emotional. And I've been all of those and more in recent weeks and months and more.

"Because that's the thing with caring, you want it to carry on because you want the person to be surviving and still with you, so that you CAN care for them, but there isn't an endpoint and it doesn't get any easier."

She also captioned the video with thanks for the nomination, adding: "We made the film to highlight the challenges and rewards of being a carer, but since then things haven’t got any easier either for Derek and I, nor for the millions of other carers right across the UK.

"@carersfirst have done some research & the economic crisis has left many feeling suicidal , hundreds of thousands with mental health issues & more than 93 percent say they can’t sleep because they are so terrified about the future.

"On #worldmentalhealthday I have been thinking about what so many are going through. If you haven’t seen #caringforderek it is still on the @itv hub. And if you feel moved to vote, then the link is in my bio – carers and anyone with a long term illness would feel so grateful not to be forgotten."
