Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway set off to the annual National Television Awards 2021 with Ben Shephard 46. The 54-year-old put on a glamorous display in a figure-hugging black dress emblazoned with sequins. The mother-of-two completed her look with a full face of make-up, which included pink lipgloss.

Ben opted for a velvet grey suit jacket and a matching tie, which gathered Kate’s attention.

Taking to his Twitter, the presenter wrote: “On the way to the #NTAs with @kategarraway.

“Full sparkle for her and pussy willow blazer for me (her description not mine!?!?).”

Many of his 778,000 followers flocked to his post to comment.

One wrote: “Look at your two. Good luck tonight Kate, I’ve voted for you x x.”

“Looking lovely,” a second commented.

A third added: “Gorgeous.”

Kate gave fans a further glimpse of her floor-length gown on the red carpet.

The presenter is up for her first award this evening for Authored Documentary Finding Derek.

The ITV film gave viewers an insight into her husband Derek Draper’s year-long health battle with coronavirus.

The 53-year-old was first hospitalised in March 2020 after catching the virus, which led to further health complications.

Back in April this year, he was finally allowed back home, but remains under around-the-clock care.

Kate expressed her hopes at Derek possibly attending tonight’s event last month.

Speaking on the show after finding out she had been nominated, she said: “I was just thinking, I was just looking the ceremony is the 9th September it says there.

“I think it is. Wouldn’t it be wonderful, if Derek is well enough to come? Wouldn’t it be wonderful?”

“I was trying to work out the dates and see the logistics of how that might work. There’s some brilliant people in the category and I don’t think for a moment we’d win.

“It would just be lovely for him to be there.”

Taking to her Instagram yesterday, she issued an emotional plea about her National Television Award.

As part of a lengthy post, she wrote: “Have been feeling very torn about asking you to vote for our documentary #FindingDerek‘s nomination for @officialntas tomorrow.”

Kate went on to say a stranger had kindly expressed their hope of her winning the award after also having a loved one struck by coronavirus, which made her reconsider her chances.

She added: “It broke my heart. So now I am asking you to vote please – not for me but to highlight the thousands that have lost lives and livelihoods to covid, and to the thousands more that battle on devastated by it.”

Kate is up for the award against; Katie Price: Harvey and Me, Marcus Rashford: Feeding Britain’s Children, Rob Burrow: My Year with MND and Roman Kemp: Our Silent Emergency.
