Derek was admitted to hospital on on March 30th and is understood to be in an unresponsive critical condition as he remains in a critical care unit.
Talking on talkRADIO, Piers talked about how many people he know’s who have lost people to COVID-19 as he said:
‘I have a cousin whose father died of coronavirus. Had another friend of mine – a TV producer who I’ve worked on foreign assignments – whose mum died in a care home last week.
Hen then continued to talk about Kate’s husband as he continued to say:
‘I’ve had Kate Garraway, who’s the Good Morning Britain co-presenter of mine – her husband Derek Draper is fighting for his life as we speak and has been for many weeks in an ICU unit.
He also said:
‘So yeah, I do feel a personal attachment to this story. But I think most people, if they have a conscience, should.’
It so so awful at the moment for poor Kate and her family.
We really hope that he starts to improve soon.
