Kate Garraway's emotional message of thanks to NHS staff on GMB

Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway has paid tribute to NHS staff saying: "I'm not sure any other country could do it as well."

Garraway, 53, was appearing on Friday morning's instalment of the show opposite Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid who will be taking an extended summer break.

Kate, who finished fourth on last year's I'm A Celebrity, will return to work alongside Ben Shephard on Monday after revealing today that doctors were urging her to "get on with life."

In an emotional interview on GMB Piers Morgan asked his colleague to speak about the NHS staff who had helped her husband over for the past 100 days since he was hospitalised with coronavirus - as you can see in the video above.

"Let's talk about the NHS staff again," Piers said.

"How important are they? You've been at the sharp end of NHS treatment, not just the medical and clinical treatment but the emotional support, I know they've given you. Put it into context."

Kate replied: "It is unbelievable and you know, I'm not sure any other country could really do it as well.

"Our NHS is absolutely vital because the coordination that they can have, the ability to talk to other countries and the hospitals are always talking to eachother.

"Daily they're finding out new things, they're having conference calls, on Zoom obviously safely with each other, it is amazing.

"I just think 'gosh, these people are human, they're absolutely human' but they're not human like I am how can they be taking this responsibility?"

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV1.
