The 53-year-old Good Morning Britain star has struggled since Derek, 52, was hospitalized for COVID-19 symptoms in March.
Speaking in an interview with Piers Morgan on his show today, Kate revealed that although Derek is now free of the coronavirus, he still does not respond.
Kate detailed Derek’s experience of falling ill and how his family fared in an interview that saw viewers reduced to tears as it was revealed that her husband could never recover.
After the interview with Kate aired, friend and TV star Myleene Klass released a video of Kate and Derek dancing together before falling ill.
Myleene captioned the post on Instagram: “Your interview made me cry. You are incredibly brave.
“Until we start again, you and Derek burn the dance floor … me and Sim prepare the drinks.”
The couple are seen dancing, Kate smiles as she and Derek’s chest move towards the suspicious spirits of Elvis Presley.
Kate wears a sparkly sequined dress, while Derek is seen in a classic costume.
They clearly enjoy their time together and look so comfortable next to each other.
Her love for Derek led Kate on her mission to care for and be with her family.
Speaking to Piers and Susanna Reid this morning, Kate revealed that Morgan had helped her clarify how to approach the tragic situation.
She said, “Very early on, I spoke to Piers and he said,” Okay, come on Garraway, you’re a journalist, this is the story of your life. ”
“” Your goal is Derek, you need to get all the information you can. “And it really helped because I thought” I have a job “. “
Kate concluded: “Because we are in free fall. I have a job – my job is to fight for Derek and protect the lives of Darcey and Billy and that forced me to get into this news mode. “
The moving interview showed that Kate was supported by both her colleagues and viewers at home.
The Draper / Garraway family can rest assured that the nation is behind Kate and hope Derek will get better very soon!
