She’s currently going though the toughest time of her life with her husband Derek Draper in intensive care with coronavirus.

But now Kate Garraway has given an update on her husband and admitted that he still is ‘in a deeply critical condition and is very ill’.

The Good Morning Britain presenter gave a heartbreaking update with fans on her Club Garraway Wellbeing website, as she thanked them for their messages of support.

Kate continued to say that Derek is in a ‘deeply critical condition” but she thanked the support for the NHS staff.

Kate wrote:

‘You may have seen over the last few week that my husband Derek has been seriously ill in hospital with COVID-19.

‘I am afraid that he remains in a deeply critical condition and is very ill, but he’s still alive so there is hope.

‘It remains an extremely worrying time for us all and the last couple of weeks have been the hardest of my life.

She then continued to write:

‘From the bottom of my heart a billion thank yous to the extraordinary NHS workers whose skills, dedication and downright guts in the face of so much personal risk, are keeping my Derek alive, just as they are for thousands of other COVID patients

‘Sending so much love and support to the thousands who have had that hope for their loved ones stolen by this hideous disease. You are not alone and I hope that helps give you strength to withstand the torture of grief.

Then Kate went on to say a big thank you to all the NHS staff who are being so supportive to Kate, her family and of course to Derek as she wrote:
