& # 39; He managed to keep control of the car, but was unable to leave the highway because there was no hard shoulder. When the AA said they couldn't come for an hour, she rang the bell after half an hour to say that maybe an hour was no choice but to call the police.

"They were so brilliant and brought us to safety, and we are now in a taxi on the way home, shaken but sure, tow truck on the way to the car.

MailOnline asked Kate Garraway's representatives for a comment.

The terrible incident happened after Kate told the nurses that her battered husband, Derek Draper, looked "focused and committed" when they put Good Morning Britain on him.

In the breakfast show on Tuesday morning, the moderator gave the promising update about the former Blair lobbyist, who was hospitalized in March after being diagnosed with a corona virus and is still seriously ill.

The television host recently returned to GMB after taking a break from her husband's intensive care unit, and had told viewers that nurses had set up the show for him to try to stimulate a response.

During the program, Kate said: "It is stable and in fact I spoke to the nurses yesterday and they said they put on Good Morning Britain.

"And they felt that he was looking because his eyes were open, he looked focused … He looked focused and committed."

The presenter joked with co-presenter Ben Shephard: "You didn't say whether it was me or you" and admitted that she found the news "very emotional".

She said, "We don't know if it's the movement of light or if it's the familiar voice. So, good morning, Derek, if you're watching.

"We all send you a lot of love, everyone here sends you a lot of love. So go ahead, your personal Good Morning Britain. & # 39;

Kate said Derek, whom she married in 2005 and with whom she shares 14-year-old daughter Darcey and 10-year-old Billy, had a "hard week" after his blood pressure dropped and his legs were swollen.

Hours before the show hit the screens, Kate teased the update when she admitted that she had a few "emotional days" when she went on Instagram for photos of herself and co-host Ben hanging around on the set, to share again.

Before her last working week, Kate thanked friends Myleene Klass (42) and Roman Kemp (27) for helping organize their son Billy's 11th birthday after admitting that she didn't want to let him down.

Kate recently announced that she could see her longtime partner in person for the first time in four months.
