GMB presenter Kate Garraway returns to work after huge health scare

The TV presenter has been missing from the show for two weeks after being rushed to hospital.

Kate made her first appearance on Good Morning Britain on Thursday – two weeks after the 51-year-old’s terrifying ordeal began.

“I came in Friday before last and I couldn’t look at the lights and I had a temperature over 40,” she revealed. “I said ‘I’ll be fine’ but the director said ‘even you can’t make this funny Kate, there is no way you can do the show, we can’t turn the lights off.’”

Kate went straight to hospital amid fears it could have been meningitis.“They were thinking meningitis, fortunately it wasn’t, and they sorted me out and I was fine,” the mum-of-two confessed, before praising the hospital that treated her.

“Can I just say The Wittington Hospital, can I tell you how brilliant they were, they saw me straight away and got me on a drip.”

While Kate’s co-host Ben Shephard joked that her sick leave was more to do with her wanting a “two week lie-in,” fans of the show were thrilled to have her back.

“So glad your back Kate Garraway. Xxx,” one viewer tweeted.
