Kate Garaway described her worries about Christmas Day, as her poor husband Derek Draper was unable to stay home with her and the children.
Good Morning Britain host and his kids Darcey and Billy can spend Christmas alone if restrictions persist.
She shared her dispute over whether families should be able to mingle, as she was unsure of how to bridge the “emotional gap” left by Derek’s absence.
Becoming emotional, Kate shared her concerns after her boyfriend, Lauren Kelly, called for a five-day softening of the government’s plans. Corona Virus Restrictions must be stopped.
Kate explained that she was alarmed at the idea that her children not only have to miss seeing the bad Derek, who is still in the hospital, but also of not seeing their grandparents.
Derek contracted the Covid-19 virus in March and was left in a coma – telling Kate on numerous occasions that her husband would not succeed.
She has updated fans regularly, as he spent good days and bad days on his recovery.
The virus seriously affected his body and left him with complications as he is still struggling in hospital.
Months have passed and he still can’t go home, which means he probably won’t be there at Christmas for the first time since the babies were born – while they might not be able to visit him either.
Kate said this would leave her an “emotional gap” to fill – and that the limitations may make her even more anxious for her.
Kate, while raising the possibility of restrictions over Christmas, explained: “I actually feel physically sick and can feel tight in my chest when thinking about it.
“I’m totally terrified about the idea that Darcy and Billy are alone this Christmas, unable to visit Derek due to potential limitations.
“That huge emotional gap, and I don’t know how to fill it, without grandparents and without friends to help fill it.
“I feel like it is an important moment like all festivals. I feel terrified about it, but we are in this situation because of a disease that has no cure at the moment.”
