Kate Garraway ‘s excellent Easter news as she got loaned a car after hers got stolen.
The Good Morning Britain presenter, 52, was delighted to have been given a vehicle to borrow over the Easter weekend after her family car disappeared from outside her home in November last year.
They had a “hard” second Easter with husband and dad Derek Draper still in hospital following his fight with coronavirus.
However, it was a bit of Easter joy for the mother and her two kids, Darcey and Bill, who were able to deliver their easter eggs to their closest friends in the area.
She wrote: “Then the day got even better — thanks to the fantastic gang @peugeotuk who have loaned me this car after “Vickie Volvo” was pinched we are mobile again!
“It arrived just in the nick of time for us to deliver some #eastereggs to friends. Lovely to be out and about a little bit.”
Kate gushed over the “super sporty” car model Peugeot 3008 and promised to be “super careful with it” so it would be returned in “mint condition”.
She added: “The car is super sporty and I promise to be super careful with it so you have it back in mint condition! Hope you have all had a lovely day & are stuffed full of chocolate #easter#hope#nearlythere.” (sic)
Earlier on, Kate revealed it had been a “hard” second Easter without Derek at home.
But the mum was happy to share the kindness she had received from her friend.
She wrote: ” #happyeaster everyone – so hard that it’s the second we’ve lived through in Lockdown/restrictions and ofcourse our second without Derek home with us.
“But he is still here so we have so much to give thanks for and there’s lots to hope for isn’t there.
“Our day started with sun shining and our wonderful neighbour who we call “Cakesuzy” bringing round the most amazing #easter cake ever she had made herself !!”
In November, Kate was devastated when the family car vanished from outside her home.
During Good Morning Britain at the time, she told hosts Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid: “Can you believe it, my car was stolen!”
“It’s disappeared from outside my house,” Kate said.
At first, she believed the car was removed because of an unpaid driving ticket which she wouldn’t have known about because the car was in Derek’s name.
“Because Derek’s been out of action and not been able to manage that kind of thing since March and it’s probably gone through some sort of system and it’s bee impounded,” she said. “So I spent a few days ringing round trying to find out if that was the case.
“The police were very helpful and they did some searches as well but it doesn’t seem to be the case – it’s actually been stolen.”
Piers said: “Let me get this straight, some little scumbag — or scumbags — have come to your house and they’ve stolen your car when you’re going through what you’re going through.
“It’s absolutely disgusting! And I hope that we can appeal to people – if you know anybody who’s got this car… What colour is it?”
