Kate Garraway reveals financial nightmare she faces while Derek Draper remains in hospital
KATE Garraway revealed the financial nightmare she faces while Derek Draper remains in the hospital.
The Good Morning Britain star, 53, has been looking after her 14-year-old daughter Darcey and 11-year-old son Billy since her husband went into hospital in March to be treated for Covid.
Kate has been open about her heartbreak but has now shined a light on a side people may not think about: the practical implications.
Speaking on Good Morning Britain, the journalist said: "One of the practical problems – which a lot of people would've experienced if they've got the absence of someone in their life – like many things the car is entirely in Derek's name, the insurance is in Derek's name, a lot of our bank accounts.
"There are a lot of financial goings that I've talked to you both about going on, which is making life very complicated because I can't get access to things.
"Because legally I haven't got power of attorney. And all this other stuff that goes on when you're dealing with a situation where someone's been sick for a long time."
She spoke about this after revealing her family's car has been stolen from outside her family's home.
Host Piers Morgan this morning lashed out at the "disgusting scumbags" as Kate revealed thieves nicked the 20-year-old vehicle nicknamed "Vicky Volvo" that she shared with Derek Draper.
Kate said: "Initially I thought it's bound to be an unpaid parking ticket that Derek hasn't been able to sort out while out of action since March and it's probably gone through a system and it's been impounded – but it's actually been stolen."
Angry Piers fumed: "Let me get this straight. Some little scumbag or scumbags have come to your house and stolen your car when you're going through what you're going through.
"It is absolutely disgusting. If you know someone who has this car…It makes me puke that someone has done this."
Piers added: "We'll get your car situation fixed today." He then turned to the criminals who stole it and made a direct plea.
Staring down the camera lens, Piers said: "Honestly if you took that car look at your humanity for a moment please and give the damn car back.
"It's got sentimental value. It is the family car and it's the only one the two kids have known, it's part of the family life.
"This family needs that car."
