Kate Garraway thrilled to be nicked by BBC for new health series after NTA win

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway is jumping ship from ITV to BBC for a one-off project.

She has agreed to front a new medical show called Doctor Can You See Me Now?

Using augmented reality and 3D visuals, Kate will take viewers on a journey inside the body to see conditions such as heart disease and kidney stones and how they are treated.

The show will be presented by Kate and Dr Guddi Singh.

The ITV star – whose husband Derek Draper is battling long Covid – said: “I am thrilled to be part of this fascinating new series.

“I believe we have all become increasingly curious about our health and well-being since the start of the pandemic, including me personally.”

This news comes just days after it was revealed that Kate is set to make a sequel to Finding Derek, the award-winning documentary about her husband's health battle.

Last Thursday, Kate picked up the National Television Award for Authored Documentary for her work.
