Kate gave an update on Derek's condition as she thanked the NHS for their war on coronavirus on Thursday evening (April 23).

She wrote on Instagram: "He is still critically ill in intensive care, but where there is life there is hope.

How is Kate Garraway?

Kate first broke her silence on Derek's health when she wrote a message earlier this month which was read out by Ben on Good Morning Britain.

She said: "The NHS team who have been working on him have all been extraordinary and I know that it’s only their professionalism, dedication and bravery that has kept Derek with us so far.

"I also know that they’re working just as hard on all the patients in their care.

"It’s hard to find the right words because thank you alone isn’t enough but I do thank them because I know Derek would if he could.

"I also want to say thank you so much to everyone who has sent messages of support. I’m sorry that I’ve not been able to respond to them but I hope you will understand I’m focusing on Derek and my family right now."
