I’m a Celeb Kate Garraway’s husband initially snubbed her as a ‘bimbo’

Kate Garraway's husband Derek Draper has been shouting from the rooftops how proud he is of his glamorous wife during her stint on I'm a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!.

From talking about how "selfless" she was during an appearance on Good Morning Britain, to admitted the ageless TV host "looks better in the morning" without makeup, Derek has been every inch the adoring husband.

He even admitted to getting pangs of jealousy when Rak-Su's Myles Stephenson, 28, revealed he thought Kate, 52, was his "telly crush".

But in an historic interview doting Derek, 52, admitted he wasn't sure about TV favourite Kate at first.

Former Labour aide Derek, was set-up with Kate by Gloria De Piero, who was is now a Labour politician, but was working as political editor on GMTV back in 2004 alongside presenter Kate.

Derek revealed he told Gloria he wasn't too sure about the potential match.

In a recent interview with The Times, he recalled: "I said I didn’t want to go out with a high-maintenance TV bimbo, but she said Kate was not like that."

He added that he soon realised Kate is "fiercely intelligent".

The pair were introduced over drinks at posh London hotel Claridge's, but it it didn't get off to the best start.

Kate initially ignored Derek, while he asked her out for a date but then abruptly cancelled.

But despite things not being smooth sailing at first, love quickly blossomed between the pair, and they tied the knot in 2005.

They share two children – Darcey, 13, and Billy, 10.
