Kate Garraway admits to ‘tough week’ on GMB as husband Derek remains in hospital

Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway has revealed that husband Derek Draper has had a "tough old week" as he remains in hospital.

The 53-year-old presenter was back on the ITV breakfast show on Friday alongside co-star and close friend Ben Shephard.

Kate's beloved family car was stolen recently and pal Ben addressed the heartbreaking ordeal during the latest edition of GMB.

Kate said she's been "blown away" by the amount of support she's received from viewers, but hasn't had time to reply to everyone after Derek's "tough old week".

"It's been a tough old week for Derek so I haven't been able to get back to everyone," she explained.

"I have honestly been blown away by the amount of messages and support."

Ben, 45, went on to reveal that fans have even offered to give their car to Kate in a bid to help her family through their difficult time.

The Tipping Point presenter said: "The car was stolen. We're furious and frustrated and angry about it.

"Viewers have offered to lend you their car."

However, cheeky Ben joked that it was a "good gesture but don't do it" as Kate is not the best driver.

Mother-of-two Kate welcomed a breakthrough moment in October after husband Derek, 53, spoke his first words since falling gravely ill with Covid-19 as the pandemic swept across Britain.

However the ITV star is said to be in a state of uncertainty over whether or not he will be discharged from hospital after spending 214 days in intensive care with the potentially life-threatening virus.

Last month, Kate revealed Derek mouthed the word "pain" – his first word since falling ill – when asked by nurses if he was in any discomfort.

While Kate said it was "heartbreaking'" he was suffering, it marked progress in his recovery since being struck down with coronavirus in March.

Kate and Derek are parents to two children Darcy, 14 and 11-year-old Billy.
