Kate Garraway’s husband Derek Draper has been battling the deadly virus in hospital for seven weeks and the Good Morning Britain host has shared an emotional update on his condition. The I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! star was absent from today’s show, but her co-host Ben Shephard read out her words as he kept viewers informed on how Kate and her family are doing during this tough time. 

He read: “It’s so wonderful to see little green shoots of hope that this dreadful disease is easing and that hopefully soon we might all be able to see each other again and hug our nearest and dearest.

“But the journey for me and my family seems to be far from over as everyday my heart sinks as I learn new & devastating ways this virus has more battles for Derek to fight.

“But he is still HERE & so there is still hope. My heartfelt thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who will be affected by this, not just for the next few weeks but for the foreseeable future.

“That will be the case for many who have suffered from the disease, but also the front line workers who have been helping to treat the worst affected.”
