Kate Garraway has announced that she will return as a presenter on Good Morning Britain on Monday.

The host has been absent from the breakfast show since March, when her husband Derek Draper was admitted to intensive care with coronavirus.

As he begins a long road to recovery, Garraway has taken advice from doctors to return to work - and, speaking on GMB today, she confirmed her return alongside Ben Shephard next week.

"The doctors are saying to me you've got to get on with life," she told Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid, who are about to go on a lengthy summer break from the show. "I can't go into a box and hide.

"It feels very strange to be back. I feel like I've got to get on. I'm going to come back on Monday with Ben Shephard.

"The doctors have said you've got to get on and do that because they're a bit worried about me. I've got to get back and going - everyone's having to do that, I'm no different.

"Derek would not just be saying for me to come back, he'd be saying 'why haven't you done it before?'"

Garraway has hosted GMB and its predecessors on ITV for the last 20 years.
