Kate Garraway told Good Morning Britain viewers she faced 'another crisis' and had to make a trip to hospital.

Kate said she had to pull out of attending with her father, who she said was really looking forward to it but "unfortunately ended up in the hospital with another crisis".
Kate did not go into detail about who was in hospital but said she was gutted to miss the special event as she really enjoyed it last year.

As we reported this week, Kate shared some festive snaps as the family get into the Christmas spirit. She posted some lovely photos of her children Darcey, 16 and Billy, 13, standing next to a gorgeous Christmas tree.
In another one she shared, Kate can be seen hauling the tree out of her car, with the help from her parents. Kate captioned the snaps: "So they say it takes a village to raise a child, but how many does it take to raise a Christmas tree?
