She began her career in Television in 1989, joining ITV News Central as a journalist, before taking her first official presenting gig at ITV News Meridian 7 years later.

She joined the freshman board of presenters for Good Morning Britain in 2014, for which, along with other projects, she reportedly makes £544,000 a year. The show is known for presenters with sharp interviewing styles, and Garraway proved this just this week when she termed Rishi Sunak’s recent £15bn support package ‘a sticking plaster.’
Garraway entered radio presenting in 1994, as a trainee journalist for BBC Radio Oxford. She has since returned to the airwaves, now the host of Mid Mornings with Kate on Smooth Radio.
Outside of the newsroom, she has taken part in TV competitions shows like Strictly Come Dancing, in which she placed 8th with the show’s omen object Anton du Beke. Later, she appeared in the nineteenth series of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!, in which she came fourth.
In 2021, She opened up about her husband Derek Draper’s battle with long-Covid in the documentary Kate Garraway: Finding Derek. Draper, who spent up to a year in hospital battling Coronavirus at the peak of the pandemic, was thought to be one of the worst cases in the country.
The couple have been married since 2005, and have two children together, Darcey (15) and Billy (12). Their North-London family home was a backdrop to the 2021 documentary, where the presenter got candid about the necessary changes throughout their home to support Draper’s recovery, including wheelchair access into their garden.
