‘Am I fired?’ Kate Garraway questions GMB boss during speech at TRIC Awards
Kate Garraway was among those honoured at this year’s TRIC Awards which was held in London. The Good Morning Britain presenter was among the winners at today’s ceremony.
The 54-year-old scooped TRIC’s Special Award for her emotional journey following her husband Derek Draper’s battle with Covid.
The GMB presenter picked up the prize after she gave a raw insight into her family’s new way of life in the ITV film, Finding Derek following her husband’s battle with coronavirus.
Before heading to the stage, the audience was shown footage from Kate’s time working on GMB throughout the past 21 years.
The mum-of-two cheekily questioned if her show bosses had put together a farewell message that she was unaware of.

“We are very clear now that he does understand everything really,” Kate said.
“He understands everything that I tell him and talk to him about but he can’t respond to it as he’d want to.”
She went on: “He can’t communicate still and that must be a desperate battle for him as it is for so many people that can’t get out their thoughts.”
Kate added: “Derek’s been having lots more tests for things and one of the first times he’s been back to the hospital was a couple of weeks ago, it was the first time he’s seen medics outside of the home.”
Meanwhile, Kate reunited with her former co-host Piers Morgan who was also in attendance at the ceremony.
He also took to the red carpet and posed for pictures alongside Susanna Reid.
The TRIC Awards is the first time they’ve been publicly together since he left in March.
The former presenting duo hosted the ITV show for five years.
Piers’ departure was announced after he refused to apologise for comments he said about Meghan Markle.
The broadcaster scooped the trophy for Best News Presenter beating Susanna and BBC’s Huw Edwards for the coveted prize.
The BBC News at Ten presenter joked that he had “stormed out” of the TRIC awards following Piers’ win.
The annual ceremony, hosted by the Television and Radio Industries Club, celebrates the biggest and best stars of the screen and airwaves in the UK.
