Kate Garraway has spoken about not being able to see husband Derek Draper on their wedding anniversary. 

GMB host Kate and husband Derek, from Chorley, have been married for 15 years today. 

Derek, 53, remains seriously ill in hospital after being admitted in March with Covid-19.

Speaking on Good Morning Britain this morning, Kate said: “What an extraordinary thing. I won’t be able to see him today.

“I kind of hoped I would but it hasn’t worked out that way for the visit… But maybe it would be a bit strange anyway. So it’s a tough day.”

She told her co-hosts: “He’s still here. There’s not a huge amount of change…

“There are so many seeming positives and then plungings…

“So, you have to think at least he’s here with you. You have a flicker and then a bad day but you just have to keep going,” the mother-of-two said.

While former lobbyist and political adviser Derek no longer has Covid-19, he still remains seriously ill in an induced coma.
