Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway marked an emotional milestone over the weekend.

Father's Day was on June 16, and this meant Kate and their two children would be enduring their first one without the late Derek Draper.

Posting a selection of old family photos onto Instagram, the broadcaster reflected on "one of those days the kids & I knew would be tough" in the caption.

"We started by visiting Derek's grave early – and talked about all the amazing things we loved about him, the daft things he did to make us laugh and all the things he has given us that we'll never forget," wrote Garraway.

"We have so much to be grateful for. We're also so grateful to still have my amazing dad in our lives and Derek's dad too. Then thanks to my fab @global family we went to the #capitalsummertimeball – an amazing day of music & summer joy."

She then admitted it was "sad coming home" with no Derek there to greet them all, "waiting to hear" about their day as he used to enjoy doing.

"I know for so many yesterday would have been a tough day so here's to getting through and let's celebrate all the wonderful fathers & father figures & what they gift us everyday."
