Kate Garraway gives Derek update

Kate recently updated viewers on her husband Derek Draper’s condition after he returned home from hospital.

Her husband was struck down severely with coronavirus, and has been suffering since last year. He has spent a year in hospital battling COVID-19 and the after-effects of the virus.

She revealed on the show this week that Derek had sweetly reacted to her new dress.

The star said: “It’s been wonderful having Derek at home and lots of little positives, I think.

“And whether those are positives because it is genuinely helping his cognition being at home or whether it’s just because I’m there to see the little things – whereas I couldn’t go in [to hospital] before and we were on FaceTime and stuff, I don’t know.

“But it feels positive, so little moments of reaction.”

She added: “I walked in the other morning just before I left to go to Smooth [radio] to say, ‘I’m off to Smooth now,’ and he said, ‘New dress?’ which was just amazing. And it was, actually!

“And I thought that was amazing on so many levels because he recognised it, second, he realised to remember that I need a lot of flattery.”
