Kate Garraway has revealed the cause of her mystery eye illness.
The Good Morning Britain host has been struggling the last few days with soreness in her eye and had to start wearing glasses.
Speaking on GMB to her co-hosts on Friday (September 25), she revealed the gruesome truth about what caused the issue.
"A team of eye nurses were baffled, absolutely baffled," she said.
"Then eventually, after having drops, they found it was actually a contact lens stuck in my eye that's been in there for about six days.
"I felt embarrassed – I thought I had taken it out, but there was bit still in there – just by root cause untidiness."
Kate previously said on social media: "I always think that when I've got my glasses on I look a bit more brainy. But if you're listening to me on Smooth Radio you'll know that nothing has actually changed.
"I've got a really sore eye. It's really hurting and I don't know what I've done to it. I can't put my contacts in and I'm wearing my glasses."
Kate recently returned to work after taking time off when her husband Derek Draper fell ill.
Derek has been in hospital for six months after contracting COVID-19. He suffered severe complications and was put in a medically-induced coma.
"When I finally got to FaceTime him, seeing him unconscious was a big shock," she shared in an interview with You magazine. "He's lost nearly eight stone in weight, a lot of it muscle throughout his body.
"He looked worn-out, thin and pale with dark circles under his eyes and there were lots of tubes."
Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
