Kate Garraway makes passionate speech about Covid sacrifices during GMB debate

Kate Garraway made a heartfelt speech about Covid sacrifices during a heated debate on Tuesday's edition of Good Morning Britain.

The 53-year-old presenter was back on our screens with co-star Ben Shephard and the pair chatted to guests about the potential plan for vaccine passports.

Things got heated between Kate and political commentator Dominque Samuels as they clashed on whether or not the said passports will work.

The passports could potentially prevent people who have refused the vaccine from entering certain public places such as pubs and cinemas.

Dominque argued that younger people were less affected by coronavirus so they should be allowed out and not be forced to have the vaccine.

Kate replied: "You say young people aren't so badly affected but they can still carry it, so they would make the choice that they would rather not be vaccinated and potentially help to protect those around them, that would mean they weren't safe to go into the pub.

"That would be their choice, no one is forcing them to make a decision, they would be choosing to make a decision from their own opinions, which would mean they couldn't do those things, why is that unfair compared with risking someone's life?"

Dominque fired back: "That's based on your idea of freedom, not being forced to do something is, but you are inadvertently being forced to take a vaccine."

Mother-of-two Kate responded: "No, you are only being asked to take it if you want to undertake that activity, I understand the point you are driving at, there are people who are fearful or don't want to take the vaccine.

"But we are all doing things we don't want to do, we don't want to stay at home, we don't want to be in lockdown, there are people who don't want to wear masks, a lot of people who don't want to do all sorts of things.

"We would like to go and see our loved ones, we can't, we would like to visit them in hospital, there are many sacrifices that people are making."

"The argument would be, if you choose not to have the vaccine, that is your choice, but it has consequences."

Ms Samuels replied: "No there shouldn't be any consequences because that is a decision that someone has made," and argued that instead of vaccines being required, people should be able to have their temperature taken on entry to venues.

Former I'm A Celeb contestant Kate went on to correctly point out not everyone with Covid has a temperature.

The presenter's passionate speech comes as her husband Derek Draper, 53, remains in hospital after contracting coronavirus in March last year.

Kate and Derek are parents to two young children, Darcey and Billy.
