Kate Garraway has taken to social media to share a sweet video of her family spending time together on holiday, her husband Derek is still recovering from long-covid after being hospitalised for nearly a year during the pandemic.

Kate Garraway has shared an adorable post on her social media of her family enjoying time away as they holiday in Cornwall. The star got some respite from caring from her husband as she took her children on a Cornish holiday with their grandparents.
