    KATE Garrway was left horrified today when Laura Tobin revealed her three-year-old daughter Charlotte fell off a paddleboard when she wasn’t looking.

    Presenter Adil Ray, 46, who hosted GMB with Kate, 53, said he had watched Laura live stream the moment on Instagram, when she and her husband Dean Brown had taken the little girl out with them on the board.
    He spotted Charlotte slipping into the water as he teased Laura, saying: “She was out paddleboarding again this weekend. But while she was busy Instagram living she hadn’t realised her daughter had fallen in!”
    And Laura explained: “The deal was one of us could stand up and have a go at stand up paddleboarding, and the other one had Charlotte sat at the front of the paddleboard while safely paddleboarding. Then my husband tried to move and she fell in. But only briefly she was fine, she had a life jacket on.”
    The presenters continued to give Laura a hard time as she defended herself, but Kate joked: “You can’t talk your three year old daughter fell off a paddleboard!”

    Kate spoke about the challenges Derek still faces and said she desperately wants him to wake up.
    She said: “He’s very much still with us. There seem to be different challenges every week.
    “I know everyone has been so lovely and are concerned, but then you don’t want to talk about it on GMB every time because it’s not cheering up everyone that’s trying to cope with Covid.
    “Then on the other hand, last week when we were having fun and games, you feel almost bad because you think, ‘Oh, I’m laughing and he’s still there in a kind of minimal conscious state and it’s a difficult balance.

    “It was worrying me last week, he’s still got lots of challenges, challenges with his food and with his lungs… it’s a waiting game really.
    “I’m lucky I’ve got the chance to wait and he’s still with us and lots of people don’t have that.”
