Kate Garraway has revealed that her husband Derek Draper can smell after being unsure if he had lost the sense.

Derek, 53, spent over a year in hospital battling coronavirus and subsequent complications from the illness, but was allowed home to his Good Morning Britain host wife and two children last month.

The 54 year old joined Lorraine Kelly on her eponymous morning show on her birthday to discuss how Derek had wished her happy returns before she left for the studio.

She also detailed how they had hilariously discovered Derek can smell after he complained about the stench of their 11 year old son, Billy.

Kate said: "One of the nurses, I was racing back a couple of days ago, and one of the nurses texted me and said, 'Oh my goodness, I've just heard Derek speak for the first time.

"I said, 'Oh my God, what did he say?' and she said, 'He said, Bill, you smell of Monster Munch'."

As the pair fell into fits of giggles, Kate continued: "It's not the quite profound thing that you hope, like 'I've seen God, I love you all', but she said he did smell of Monster Munch, he'd just had two packets of massive Monster Munch which, as you know are very pungent, and he'd come over and he was hugging him.

"He seemed to smile, she said he was laughing but I think laughing may be strong. He seemed to be laughing and Billy was laughing as well, which is a lovely normal moment.

"But also, it shows us he can smell. So every little thing is like putting little jigsaw pieces in to make a hopeful picture of the future."
