Kate Garraway has revealed her heartache at not being able to see husband Derek Draper on their 15th wedding anniversary.

Derek, 53, has been in hospital since March after a battle with coronavirus, with doctors unsure he will be able to recover from damages caused by the bug.

Good Morning Britain host Kate, also 53, took to the ITV breakfast show to reveal it was her and Derek's anniversary, but that she is not able to visit him.

Hosting the show alongside Susanna Reid and Adil Ray, she said: "It's actually Derek and I's wedding anniversary today, unbelievably."

Speaking to co-stars Richard Arnold and Dr Hilary Jones, she continued: "15 years today, Richard and, I think, Hilary were there on the day weren't you both.

"Yeah, what an extraordinary thing. I won't be able to see him today, I kind of hoped I would, but it hasn't worked out that way for the visit, but maybe it would be a bit strange anyway.

"It's a tough day, but he's still here. There's not a huge amount that's changed, it's very strange, when I haven't seen you [Susanna] for ages and Adil I haven't seen you for a couple of weeks either, and so much happens in that couple of weeks.


"There's so many, sort of, seeming positives and then plungings, but actually when I see people again it's just the same, but you have to think well at least he's here with you.

"You have a flicker and then a bad day, but just got to keep going really," she added.

I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star Kate recently revealed Derek has lost eight stone in the six months since he's been in hospital.

She told YOU magazine at the weekend: "When I finally got to FaceTime him, seeing him unconscious was a big shock.

"He's lost nearly eight stone in weight, a lot of it muscle throughout his body. I see him quite infrequently, not as often as I'd wish."

Kate heartbreakingly added: "We hope and believe he will come out of it, but we just don’t know.

"The heart of the family has been ripped out and we don’t know if we will ever get it back.

"If they say this has improved today you don’t feel the euphoria you’d like because you have this feeling the next day something else will have gone wrong.

“At first it was all about Derek’s lungs, but then his kidneys started failing and he was on dialysis. Now they've realised Covid can affect every cell of the body."

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays at 6am on ITV.
