Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway, 54, has sparked fears from her one million Instagram followers, who urged her to look after herself after she shared a painful photo of her inflamed eye.
Kate’s eye could be seen looking swollen and weeping in the snap, which she shared this afternoon.
She was pictured lying down on the sofa in a winter coat, with a face mask hanging just below her chin.
The star explained she almost “didn’t get it checked out”, as she was desperate to return home to do some physiotherapy with her husband Derek Draper, who is recovering from long Covid.
Kate wrote alongside the snap: “Ouch! But thanks to the brilliant @nhs team @moorfieldsuae not permanent.
“Inflamed cornea caused probably by wearing my contacts for too long on some very long days recently.
“Hence the glasses on @gmb on Friday .
“And to think I nearly didn’t get it checked out as was wanting to get back home to do some physio with Derek.
“A further reminder if you are a carer, parent or anyone really you have to sometimes put yourself first otherwise you are no use to anyone you are trying to help.
“48 hours of putting drops in every hour day AND night & I will be back on track. Hope everyone is having a lovely #sunday.”
