Kate Garraway’s mum was taken to hospital today, following a fall she had while at the beach.
Kate took to Instagram to share the news with her followers. In the post she said:=“Just when you thought (hoped!) I hadn’t had a new reason to thank the #nhs recently cue an unfortunate tumble from my mum on the way to the beach & and a broken foot and twisted ankle.”
The photo shows Kate’s mum sitting on the edge of the passenger seat of a red Peugeot, with a nurse in full PPE standing near her, as both appeared to be smiling at the camera.
The post racked up over 10,000 likes in an hour, with a flurry of fans and supporters offering their support and admiration for the Good Morning Britain star and her family.
Kate added in the caption: “Thanks to the typically wonderful #nhs team at #bodmin hospital and particularly wonderful Ruth we managed to get her booted and safely home for further treatment.
“You were all so kind – thank you so much. And thanks to @peugeotuk (again) for lending us a car with enough room for her to keep her leg stretched out for the whole journey (although it did mean my Dad was relegated for the first time ever to the back seat , where he really enjoyed defining the expression “back seat driver”!!!).”
Newsreader and GMB colleague Charlotte Hawkins commented, “Oh no, your poor mum! Sending love xx”
