Kate’s spokesperson told MailOnline: “Kate’s husband Derek Draper has been taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive care with a confirmed case of COVID-19.

He was admitted on Monday and has since tested positive for the virus.

“Kate has not been tested, but she also has mild symptoms, also since Monday, and has therefore been in strict isolation with her children at home. “

A source added to The Sun: “It is a desperate situation for Kate, who is worried about Derek’s health.

“She is obviously also on TV. Everyone at GMB is so worried about her.

Kate and Derek have been married for fourteen years, the former lobbyist applauding his wife during his stint in I’m A Celebrity last year, he flew to Australia with their two children to meet her.

The couple, who married in September 2005, have already discussed their union, Derek admitting he feared it was “a high maintenance TV bimbo”.

Kate, who was married to Ian Rumsey from 1998 to 2002, met Derek when they were created by a mutual friend, then GMTV political editor Gloria De Piero.

The star of I’m A Celeb told The Times, “One day, when the sun was rising, she said,” I have a revelation. You and Derek Draper. I was, like, ‘Who?’

“Derek had just returned from America, having left politics and trained as a psychotherapist, and she thought we would be perfect for each other …

“She made a drink with a group of people at Claridge. Derek came in thinking it was a date and I was incredibly cool ignoring it.

Derek then admitted that he was relieved that he had gone on date as Kate dispelled all the myths he believed to be dating a television personality.

Piers Morgan, Kate’s co-star at GMB, previously talked about Derek when they were fighting their heads when he was press chief for Labor and Piers was editor of the Daily Mirror.
