BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker, 43, welcomed back Kate Garraway, 53, to Good Morning Britain yesterday for the first time since her husband Derek Draper was admitted to hospital after contracting coronavirus in March. However, despite his kind message, one Twitter user questioned his context.
It comes after Piers Morgan, 55, shared his delight over his reunion with Kate back in the studio for the first time in four months yesterday.
After he and his co-presenter Susanna Reid, 49, conducted their exclusive interview with their ITV colleague, Piers proceeded to share a smiling selfie with Kate, in view of his 7.6 million Twitter followers.
The TV host wrote: “So lovely to have Kate back in the studio today & to see that fabulous smile again.”
Once Dan noticed Piers’ sweet tribute online, he soon replied to the broadcaster: “Great to see. Enjoy your break.”

During the chat, Kate said: “Wonderfully his eyes are opening. It’s a desperate situation but there’s fantastic hope he’s still alive.”
They wrote: “Kate Garraway joins us in the studio to update us on how her husband Derek is fighting against the devastating effects of coronavirus.”
After GMB shared their update, Dan retweeted their interview and penned: “Just catching up but lovely to see @kategarraway back on the television today.
“Kate… everyone at BBC Breakfast wishes you, Derek, and the family the very best. See you soon.”
