Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan has spoken about Kate Garraway’s husband Derek Draper’s battle with coronavirus.
Piers has now discussed the “living hell” Kate’s family has been going through, and continued to pass on all his support and best wishes.
Speaking on today’s (May 18) show about Derek’s condition, Piers noted: “We haven’t talked about it much because Kate Garraway is going through a living hell like many people.
“Her husband has been in a very serious condition for many, many weeks.”
He continued: “We can all just hope and pray he comes through it, but it’s been very, very difficult for Kate and her family. We miss her here at the show, but obviously we stay in touch with her a lot.
“We send her and the kids all our love and we just wish Derek all the very best.”
Fellow presenter Susanna Reid also shared a few words on the subject, adding that the GMB staff don’t tend to address Kate and Derek’s situation as it’s private.
“We haven’t said much,” she explained. “We leave it up to Kate, because she updates fans on Thursdays after the Clap for Carers and then Ben Shephard updates viewers the next day.”
