Managing director of ITV Daytime, Emma Gormley said: ‘I’m beyond proud to work alongside this amazing group of women, who both individually and collectively have accrued an incredible array of broadcasting achievements.

‘Their experience and expertise in front of camera is second to none and this year’s International Women’s day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate them all.’

Kate’s documentary Caring For Derek, which follows her family’s life after her husband Derek Draper became seriously ill after contracting coronavirus, was met with high praise from fellow celebrities and viewers at home.

Almost two years later, Derek still has very limited mobility and cannot properly communicate.

While Katie was recently made an OBE for her services to charity and victims of burns and other disfigurement injuries.

When asked how she continues to inspire positivity in people who have experienced life-changing burns and injuries, she said: ‘To be truthful, I don’t always maintain a positive outlook.

‘It’s about surrendering to that as a normal part of life, the highs and the lows, and being able to surrender to the lows make them fewer and farther between.’

ITV Daytime’s female presenters celebrate International Women’s Day. Watch them weekdays from 6am on ITV.
