Kate Garraway was overcome with emotion on Thursday as she admitted she's unsure if she'll attend the National Television Awards ceremony this evening (September 9).

The 54-year-old presenter woke up the nation with the latest news headlines and co-stars Susanna Reid and Martin Lewis couldn't help but bring up Kate's award nomination.

However, the ITV star admitted that attending the glitzy bash "feels wrong" as her husband Derek Draper battles the effects of coronavirus at home.

She went on to share that she considered not attending the ceremony until a woman stopped her in the street and told how her much the programme meant to her.

Susanna and Martin insisted that Kate went to the awards show because everyone, including Derek, is so proud of her.

Kate's documentary Finding Derek has been nominated in the Authored Documentary category.

Sharing an image from the documentary that showed herself and Derek on their wedding day on social media on Wednesday, Kate penned she is 'very proud' of the show.

The mother of two wrote: 'Have been feeling very torn about asking you to vote for our documentary #FindingDerek's nomination for @officialntas tomorrow.

'I am very proud of it but felt I shouldn't be asking for more from you. I have even wondered if I shouldn't go to such a sparkling event and take time away from the family who need me now more than ever. But a stranger just changed my mind!

'She was walking past our house & called out "hope you win". I thanked her but said didn't think we would as so many good ones in the category & I hadn't been campaigning for votes as others have. She looked horrified.

'"But you must" she said "my sister died from Covid damage two weeks ago. Her heart had been ruined by the virus last summer. She watched your documentary and it gave her so much hope." 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.

'Also for the millions of others who are facing terrible diagnoses of any illness , the tortuous wait for treatment as our NHS strains to cope.

'It would be wonderful if your vote meant they felt less forgotten and helped me to fight on for them.'
