Kate Garraway shares update on husband Derek Draper

Derek Draper, 53, fell ill in March 2020 after contracting coronavirus and has required a long recovery in intensive care, during which he was placed in a coma.

After more than a year in hospital, he was considered well enough to return to his North London home in April.

The Good Morning Britain presenter and former I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here contestant has been open about how her family has coped since her husband's diagnosis.

She recently updated fans:  "So Derek has been in and out of hospital a lot recently - hopefully the wonderful health teams will help him improve but I woke up early feeling exhausted & very fretful."

She added: 

 "As you know my garden is my #happyplace so came out for some #calm and to get stuck in to some weeding & planting.

"It's been ages since have been able to & I really missed it but nature hasn't me. The flowers are blooming, fruits growing, leaves dancing in the breeze.

"Am sure there's a message in there somewhere for how life finds a way, and I certainly feel better for being in amongst it."
