Kate Garraway breaks down talking about husband’s Covid recovery
During the show, Kate visited a church with her husband regularly before he contracted Covid.
She then said she had not been to church since “Derek got sick” before crying and taking a moment out to pray.
“We used to go regularly,” she said. “”Derek is a faithful churchgoer, but we haven’t been inside one and it does feel like there’s an incredible sense of peace.
“It makes me feel quite emotional, actually. Well if you’re ever going to pray in your life you’ll pray here.”
Kate explained what she was thinking after she was seen praying.
She said: “I think there’s something very powerful in prayer.
“Whatever form it takes for you. For me, a classic prayer – I believe to God – is a very special thing. You can probably guess what I’m praying for.”
