Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway was battling with her emotions on Thursday morning as she told Richard Bacon about preparing for her first holiday away without husband Derek Draper, 54.

Kate, also 54, confessed she had barely slept due to worry about preparing for her trip away, and said that her children are worried too.

"I'm actually about to disappear off a little holiday" she revealed.

Kate joked to Richard, 45: "I'm already wearing the deck chair. It's been pointed out by Richard Arnold, don't worry."

She shared how emotional the family is about going away, and how friends are helping them.

"I had a busy day yesterday writing lots of lists and everything, because Derek's family are descending to take care of Derek for a few days while I take the kids away."

She said a lot of preparation has been going on for the trip: "I was writing lists so I was up late thinking, have I remembered everything?"

Richard sympathised with her: "Good for you getting away on on a holiday break!"

Kate explained how much she has had to plan: "I had a very tight window where everybody could come and look after Derek, so I could take the kids away."

"I have got friends to help us because I think we're quite emotional the three of us about going away without him," she explained sadly.

"I wondered whether that would feel too strange to do. It feels like a bit of a moment, my son Billy is a bit is concerned," Kate explained about her children.

"It feels strange but we need to do it, to have a little bit of time come back and be refreshed."

Earlier this week Kate found out she had been nominated for a National Television Award for her documentary Kate Garraway: Finding Derek.

She mentioned her hopes that Derek would be well enough to come to the awards, but Richard asked if it was realistic.

"Yesterday, it certainly wouldn't have been right," admitted Kate.

"I don't know whether it's right. It would just be a lovely thing for him to experience how much what he's been through has touched people"

She sighed: "I don't know if it's going to be possible and sort of taking everything a day at a time. I think the logistics might be quite tricky."

"I think the organisers there certainly may weep at the thought of what we'd have to do to make that possible."
