The Good Morning Britain (GMB) star has been a fixture on ITV for more than 20 years. She has starred on GMTV, Daybreak, Lorraine and even I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!. Over the past year, Garraway has documented the struggles of her husband Derek Draper and their family since he contracted coronavirus.
The 53-year-old, whose memoir The Power Of Hope is released today, experienced the heartache faced by many families around the world.
Since the pandemic began more than 127,000 people in the UK have died out of 3.14 million worldwide.
During that time, Garraway has also been outspoken about the Sussexes and their departure from senior royal roles.
After the death of Prince Philip on April 9, the star analysed a statement released by Prince William about his grandfather.

In the touching tribute, William wrote: “Catherine and I will continue to do what he would have wanted and will support The Queen in the years ahead.
“I will miss my Grandpa, but I know he would want us to get on with the job.”
Garraway questioned whether the remarks “might be a bit of a dig… at his brother for seeming to have stepped back” during a debate on GMB.
The ITV star has been a fan of Harry’s for many years and in a 2015 episode of the show joked about having a crush on him.

She cited former GMB correspondent Derek King’s quote about the Duke of Sussex in a tweet.

Garraway branded the quote “cheeky!” but after the royal wedding, many speculated about a romance between the pair.
The day after William and Kate’s engagement was announced – November 17th, 2010 – the ITV tweeted again.
In an unusual response, Garraway wrote: “Ok sum luv sum (sic) hate royal wedding news.”

She explained: “He’s decided to quit and as he put it himself, fall on the sword of free speech.”
Garraway described Piers as “very passionate” and hinted at his argumentative nature.
She said: “That’s the thing about Piers, isn’t it, he’s very passionate, he does fly kites and have debates but it always comes from a place of authenticity
“He always believes in what he says and he’s left.”
