Kate Garraway craving marmite, beetroot

TV presenter and expectant mum Kate Garraway shares her pregnancy cravings second time round.
GMTV presenter Kate Garraway has revealed the unusual cravings she is experiencing with her current pregnancy.

The 41-year-old journalist is expecting her second baby with husband of three years, psychotherapist Derek Draper, in July.

"I've been wanting Marmite and beetroot – I'm munching on something all the time," she told Now magazine.

"I don't know whether it's craving or greed, but I put it down to craving. Although you pay for it after when you're the size of a house. Your body puts on weight for a reason and you need those reserves."

Kate is already mum to two-year-old daughter Darcey, who was born in London in March 2006.

After giving birth to Darcey, Kate was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid - a common condition in new mums - as she lost over three stones of baby weight in a relatively short period of time.

She appeared in the fifth series of Strictly Come Dancing at the end of 2007.
