KATE Garraway delivered Easter eggs to pals with her two kids today in a loaned car after her family’s Volvo was stolen.
The Good Morning Britain star was devastated in November when her car was pinched by thieves while her husband Derek was seriously ill in hospital with coronavirus complications.

However, she was smiling today after Peugeot lent her a new car for Easter.
Sharing pictures of herself, son Bill, 11, and daughter Darcey, 15, holding chocolate eggs by the vehicle, she wrote: “Then the day got even better – thanks to the fantastic gang @peugeotuk who have loaned me this car after ‘Vickie Volvo’ was pinched we are mobile again!
“It arrived just in the nick of time for us to deliver some #eastereggs to friends. Lovely to be out and about a little bit . The car is super sporty and I promise to be super careful with it so you have it back in mint condition! Hope you have all had a lovely day & are stuffed full of chocolate”

Kate’s missing car, nicknamed Vickie Volvo, was stolen from outside her London home.
At the time, Piers Morgan lashed out at the “disgusting scumbags” who took it.
He fumed on Good Morning Britain: “Let me get this straight. Some little scumbag or scumbags have come to your house and stolen your car when you’re going through what you’re going through.
“It is absolutely disgusting. If you know someone who has this car…It makes me puke that someone has done this.”

Gutted Kate said : “I don’t know but it was such a body blow – particularly to my son Billy.
“That was our family car and it’s just like another thing that’s been grabbed away.
“There are bigger things than a car going on right now, but it’s one of those things.”
Kate’s husband Derek Draper has been in intensive care since March 2020
Earlier today the broadcaster said she’s thankful her husband Derek “is still here” as she marked the second Easter without him at home.
She wrote on Instagram: “#happyeaster everyone – so hard that it’s the second we’ve lived through in Lockdown/restrictions and of course our second without Derek home with us.
“But he is still here so we have so much to give thanks for and there’s lots to hope for isn’t there.”
Kate said there’s lots to hope for
She shared a picture of her neighbour who’d baked the family delicious-looking cake.
Kate added: “Our day started with sun shining and our wonderful neighbour who we call ‘Cakesuzy’ bringing round the most amazing #easter cake ever she had made herself!!”
Derek, 53, remains in intensive care a year after being struck down by Covid-19.
