Elsewhere on the show, Garraway and co-host Ben Shephard chatted about the fact that they were recently at an awards show also attended by Prince Charles, who has since been diagnosed with the coronavirus.
Shephard told royal commentator Emily Andrew that they were at the Prince's Trust Awards alongside the royal on March 11, and that Garraway actually met him.
“We didn't shake hands, Emily, but we were very close,” Garraway chimed in.
