Kate Garraway struggling to ‘stay strong’ as she calls husband Derek ‘every night’

Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway was spotted wiping away tears as she took part in the Clap for Carers yesterday evening with her children Darcey and Billy. Kate’s husband Derek has been in intensive care for two months after he was struck down with coronavirus and Lorraine Kelly revealed today she calls him every night as doctors hold a phone to his ear.

Speaking on her show this morning, Lorraine told viewers: “We should mention our Kate, our Kate Garraway who was out there clapping last night as usual with her children Darcey and Billy.

“She has been quite remarkable throughout all this is. As I’m sure you know her husband Derek is still in intensive care.

“He’s still with us, there’s still hope, but it’s very very emotional for her.

“She said last night she’s trying to find new ways to stay strong.”

“But even if we don’t clap next Thursday it won’t diminish my eternal thanks to all in the #NHS. They are keeping Derek alive & every one of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited.

“Hope has to keep us all going doesn’t it? I am having to find new ways of staying strong everyday for Darcey & Billy, as I know Derek would want me to.

“It’s not easy but when I think of how hard Derek is fighting & the bravery of all in the #NHS it helps.

“Thanks so much for all your messages… Standing together & learning from each other has to get us all through. #hope #love #clapthecarers.”
