GOOD Morning Britain star Kate Garraway has revealed an update on husband Derek Draper.
Kate, 56, opened up on Derek's progress at last night's National Television Awards -saying "we keep ploughing on".
Derek is one of the UK's longest suffering patients of Covid, yet has since been battling a variety of health problems, after the virus caused brain inflammation, kidney failure, and damage to his liver and pancreas.
Kate exclusively told The Sun: “He's doing alright. There’s been no dramatic progress I’m afraid but we keep ploughing on.
"Derek and the kids are all watching at home but we’ve got it on record too to watch together.
"I’m just glad I didn’t fall over.”
