Kate Garraway has left her fans stuns after sharing a new family photo featuring her husband of 17 years, Derek Draper.

Over the weekend, to mark Earth Day, the Good Morning Britain presenter shared several photos of her planting a tree with her father-in-law and wrote: "Funny how it was just grandad & I for the digging & planting & then suddenly everyone appears when up!!"

She added: "Crowning a very special weekend with the Drapers ( Aunty Sue & grandma you are here in spirit) by planting a magnolia tree for #earthday. Happy Sunday everyone xxx Xxx."

Whilst the first two photos show her and her father-in-law hard at work on the front garden of her London home, the third snap features her alongside her husband Derek, who is smiling at the camera. Behind them, their two children, Darcey, 17, and 13-year-old Billy, can be see posing alongside their grandparents.

Friends and fans were quick to react to the rare photo, with GMB co-star Susanna Reid writing: "Everything about these is gorgeous."

Vicky Pattison added: "Derek looks amazing," whilst Laura Tobin added a love eye emoji.

Her fans were just as supportive, with one writing: "Derek is looking well so good to see." A second remarked: "How absolutely wonderful to see a pic of Derek, and looking so well too. Has made my weekend this post."

Kate's new photo comes after the presenter explained why she avoids talking about Derek, as you can see in the video below. It also comes days after the mother-of-two opened up about "her joyous tears" as she attended the Elton John concert with Derek.

The 57-year-old was in for a surprise when Elton John dedicated a song to her family during his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour at the O2 Arena.

Sharing a clip of Elton dedicating Don't Let the Sun Go Down On Me to Kate and Derek on Instagram, Kate wrote: "So this was a moment. Finally found someone who had actually filmed it rather than just burst into joyous tears as we did!!! 

"Still can't quite believe we were there at all - even hours before we feared Derek would be too weak - but he was determined. Yes Derek has been back in hospital this week & yes there's such a long road ahead but #eltonjohn & @davidfurnish you gave the kids & Derek a moment that we will never forget and has lifted their spirits again to feel anything is possible."
