Kate Garraway has revealed the sweet way TV presenter Jeremy Kyle helped her children get to their grandparents house.

The 53 year old, who recently revealed her tyre exploded in a "terrifying" accident, has been juggling looking after her kids Darcey, 14, and Billy, 11, visiting her husband Derek Draper, 52, in hospital, and going back to work at ITV's Good Morning Britain.

In an attempt to bring a sense of normality back into her children's lives, Kate arranged for them to stay at their grandparents house for a few days.

However, the TV host was incredibly cautious about ensuring her kids didn't have the coronavirus before leaving.

Speaking to her co-host Ben Shephard on GMB, she explained: "My children have gone for the first time to stay away from home – they've gone to stay with Derek's mum and dad.

"Derek's mum and dad have been shielding since the beginning of March because they both feel vulnerable.

"So this was a very big deal for them to have the children to stay, and also very important because they haven't seen their grandchildren in a while.

"Very important for Billie and Darcey because they haven't seen their grandparents as well.

"So one of the thing we did was to plan over several weeks what to do.

"So I thought, right, we have to be very clear – we have to isolate in the days before they leave to travel.

"I actually washed and packed Billy and Darcey's clothes to seal them for quite a few days just in case there was anything problematic there."

Kate, who recently gave an update on her husband's health condition, went on to explain that she didn't take her kids as the grandparents hadn't even been in contact with Derek's sister so she didn't want to be an extra person from them to be in contact with.

"Very, very kind of him, thank you very much Jeremy."
