GMB’s Richard Arnold offers Kate Garraway fashion advice ahead of her trip to the Palace

Richard Arnold has teased that he wants to give his Good Morning Britain co-star Kate Garraway some fashion advice before she collects her MBE.

Kate, 54, has been awarded the honour for her services to broadcasting and will head to Buckingham Palace to be presented the award by a member of the Royal Family later this year.

But her GMB co-star Richard, 52, has now said he wants to give her outfit a once over before she heads through the palace gates.

Speaking exclusively to OK! as he celebrates 25 years in showbiz, he said: "I’m going to have to have a strong word with her, though, to make sure she doesn’t turn up in a corsage.

"There was a time in the early 2000s – and I guess Sex And The City is to blame for this – where Kate would be frocked up by wardrobe, then she’d stick on a corsage.

"So as well as feeling enormous pride, I’ll be keeping a close eye on Kate’s clobber.

"I'd like to send her off in style by checking what she’s wearing."

Richard also opened up on the relationship he shares with his Good Morning Britain co-stars, admitting they "belly laugh every day".

He said: "Susanna [Reid], Charlotte [Hawkins], Laura [Tobin] and Ranvir [Singh] and I have all worked together for quite some time.

"Kate, Ben [Shephard] and I just have a larger shared history. Those friendships mean a great deal.

"I always say the greatest pension you can have is shared history.

"To get up and work the hours we do, there’s no room for egos, we just belly laugh every day. It really is a family affair."

Discussing his quarter of a century career, Richard continued: "I often get asked by guests who come on GMB, 'How do you do it every day?' And I reply, 'It’s called a mortgage!'"

Richard laughed as he added: "I’ve always been an early bird. Plus being down the 'tinsel mines', as we jokingly call it at GMB, is a privilege and one I didn’t ever expect to fall into.

"To still be here – even though I joke frequently that I’m clinging on like a cat to a curtain – is a joy. I’m a very lucky boy."
