The GMB star, 54, picked up the National Television Award for Authored Documentary on Thursday night at the O2 Arena in London for Finding Derek – her televised account of her husband Derek’s ongoing battle against COVID-19.
The following morning – her and Derek’s wedding anniversary – she shared a rare snap of her husband and thanked her supporters, while also giving a heartbreaking insight into data protection reform restricting her seeing his records.
Kate, who shares Darcey, 15, and William, 12, with Derek, 54, said: ‘I was going to say thank you to everyone for voting. Everyone has a Derek in their life, or a Billy or a Darcey. Hopefully this is for the pandemic and is to tell people to keep going.’

She added the caption: ‘Wow. Thank you so so much. Have been in such an emotional daze all night I failed to get a single photo of me or the brilliant @flickerproductions team who made #findingderek @theofficalntas!!…
