The nation was glued to their screens on Wednesday night to watch the semi-finals of the European Championships – and that included Kate Garraway and her family. The GMB star took to Instagram shortly after England's 2-1 win over Denmark with a fun video of her son Billy.

Kate, 54, is a proud mum to two children with husband Derek Draper – Billy and his big sister, 15-year-old Darcey. But it was her son who took centre stage in her sweet clip.

Billy, 11, can be seen running into the house from the garden, cheering and wearing his England football shirt with a flag around his shoulders. He then suffers a slight mishap – but it's not enough to dampen his spirits.

It comes after Kate also sat down to watch England take on Germany just last week – a match they won 2-0. She shared a fun photo showing her wearing a comical red and white wig and a matching red dress, writing: "Yeeeeeeeessss!!! Thank god!! Goooooaaaaallll! You can do it boys! #euros #englandfootball."

The family are no doubt now gearing up for the final on Sunday. It's unlikely that husband Derek has been able to join in on the celebrations; he returned home in April after being hospitalised for more than a year because of COVID-19 and Kate previously described his communication was "minimal".

"He came home on April 7 so we're a few weeks into it now. How is he? Look, he's devastated by COVID. He can't really move, his communication is very minimal," she confirmed on The Andrew Marr Show. "There are moments where there's up, you feel you know he's in there. He has a lot of memory. But the accessing of it is very limited."
