Kate Garraway took to her Instagram page to share that her house had flooded in the lead-up to Christmas.

Kate, 53, also reflected on being without her husband Derek Draper for the festive season, as he continues to fight for his life in hospital after his coronavirus battle.

Addressing her 968,000 followers, the Good Morning Britain presenter admitted that "Christmas has been a challenge".

She shared: "Well here we are folks – #newyearseve – the last day of a year few will be sorry to see the back of. Have been quiet for a while – getting through Christmas has been a challenge hasn’t it with all the emotions it stirs in our strange world & no where really to put them – except in hope.

"And there is still so much real hope out there. Not just in the extraordinary health care workers & researchers who definitely hold a bright light for the future. But in all the little kindnesses."

Kate then thanked everyone who had helped when her house flooded in what she described as a "calamitous few days".

"We had a calamitous few days in the run up to Christmas – but we got through thanks to some wonderful people. The guys from @bondconstruction who literally got on their hands & knees with me to bucket out water after we had 2 pipe leaks that flooded our home.

"@emmawillisofficial & @marksandspencer who made sure we had #gorgeousfood for our Christmas dinner when I couldn’t get a delivery slot anywhere & the guys from @britishgas who spent hours on the phone helping me to get a fridge & freezer to put the food in .

"The guys from @skyhelp who talked me through getting our WiFi & tv working on Xmas eve. Your kindness & spirit is overwhelming . And all @itv & @global for their constant support. "

She concluded her post by sending love to all her supporters.

Kate said: "Sending love & virtual hugs to all of you who have sent messages – spreading the love is what will give us all a truly happy new year."
