Kate Garraway has shared an emotional update on her husband Derek Draper as he continues to recover at home.

Derek, 53, was hospitalised after contracting coronavirus last March, staying there for over a year due to complications from the illness.

He has now been discharged, with his Good Morning Britain host wife Kate, also 53, now giving a touching update on his progress as he noticed she was wearing a new dress as she left for work.

Kate joined Susanna Reid and Adil Ray on the hit ITV breakfast show on Thursday as she discussed the heartwarming moment with viewers.

She told her co-stars: "It's a whirly gig, it's a whirly gig. No, it's been wonderful having Derek at home, and lots of little positives, I think.

"Whether those are positives because it is genuinely helping his cognition being at home or just because I'm there to see the little things, you know, whereas I couldn't go in before and we were on FaceTime and stuff, I don't know."

Revealing the moment, she continued: "But it feels positive, little moments of reaction. He actually said something the other day, I walked in the other morning just before I left to go to Smooth [Radio] to say, 'I'm off to Smooth now,' and he said, 'New dress?,' which was just amazing because it was actually."


Adil, 46, joked: "You should have turned round and said, 'No, actually I've worn this many times before', to which Kate replied: "Yeah, I had a go at him.

"No, I thought that was amazing on so many levels because he recognised it and, secondly, he realised and remembered that I need a lot of flattery, so there was some emotional connection there, and some basis of what our relationship has always been based on and it was just a little moment.

"And then, of course, there was nothing and we're back to the sort of bits in between, so lots of little moments. Also, a very busy home now with lots of experts and teams of people coming in and out."

Susanna, 50, chimed: "What a relief to have him there back in the house again and not having to deal with everything over FaceTime.

"Just communicating with Derek on FaceTime, he must benefit so much from just having your presence.

"And also, like you say, the experts. Actually being able to talk to the people are caring for him."

Kate finished: "Yeah, we're always sharing things between us and they're all just an extraordinary bunch of people.

"We all know, don't we, that carers are incredible people, we've said it so much this year.

"For them, it's learning about him, they don't know the details, learning about us, learning about me — big learning curve there, so far, so good, but I don't want to tempt fate."
