Kate Garraway says she feels ‘physically sick’ about Christmas
Roman Kemp, 27, has admitted he hopes his future partner or daughter will share the same qualities as his I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! co-star Kate Garraway, 53, due to her strength and “loyalty” during her husband Derek Draper’s health battle. The Capital FM host shared his thoughts in an exclusive interview with Express.co.uk, in which he branded the Good Morning Britain presenter “an absolute warrior”.
It comes after Kate’s other half was rushed to intensive care with coronavirus earlier this year.
Derek is still in hospital as the virus caused significant damage to his internal organs.
While discussing Kate’s resilience during a tough time for her family, Roman said: “It’s incredibly hard watching anyone go through what Kate’s had to go through and it was amazing to see her recognised during Pride of Britain, that was an amazing thing.
“But Kate is an absolute warrior and she’s someone that I would love it if I had a daughter and they turned out to be like Kate Garraway and to have a partner that is as loyal and has got as much fight as Kate does.

“She’s an incredible woman and of course she’s someone who I’ll always check in on from time to time but at the same time, she understands this as well, there are so many people that are going through a horrible, horrible moment in their life.
“And it’s a time for us who aren’t necessarily going through that to look at ourselves in terms of reflection and have a sense of gratitude for what we do have.”
Roman, who became good friends with Kate during their time in camp together on I’m A Celebrity last year, also opened up about joining Kate in celebrating her son Billy’s 11th birthday, just four months after his dad Derek was hospitalised.
The star dressed up in his I’m A Celebrity clothes and took part in a water fight in the back garden, and was pictured running around with Kate’s 14-year-old daughter Darcey as they soaked Billy and his friends.
Recalling the occasion, the presenter, who took part in the ITV reality show with Kate last year, said: “It was a really nice day, it was a really lovely day.
“Kate’s got a beautiful family and I was grateful enough to be able to share a little moment with them.”
Kate recently opened up on “loneliness” as she reflected on her “horrendous” year.
Kate and her colleague Ben Shephard are set to honour those who dedicated their time to others in 2020 with GMB’s 1 Million Minutes Awards.

The mum-of-two explained: “It has been so incredible to see people give their valuable free time to help others in need, especially during what has been a horrendous and difficult year.
“We have seen more loneliness and isolation than ever before.
“It’s been a real mixture of seeing wonderful communities and people helping each other in amazing ways coupled with that loneliness at the core of it.”
Kate’s longtime colleague and friend Ben also shared that his admiration towards her only grows as she continues to work during this difficult time for her family.
“There is not a moment when I’m working with her where that admiration tarnishes,” said Ben.
“Kate is so brilliant and professional and we have fun so you sometimes forget the relentless journey that they are on at the moment.
“We all want to know what the outcome is going to be and that is the hardest thing, not knowing.
“In 2021, I will undoubtedly be more optimistic and positive, because of my friendship with Kate and how much I admire her.”
