SUSANNA Reid and Piers Morgan had watery eyes in a tribute to Kate Garraway as they “hope for a miracle” for her ailing husband Derek.
The presenters of Good Morning Britain sent their love to their colleague after she spoke about her husband who is still in a coma following his battle with the coronavirus.
Before delving into the day’s stories, Susanna and Piers took the time to send their love and support to Kate.
Susanna said: “Before we start, I think we both just want to send our love to our colleague and friend Kate Garraway.
“We both watched his interview on Good Morning Britain on Friday. Millions of you have looked as well as she told you and us about the situation about Derek.
“Absolutely heartbreaking for the family and then she did an interview in The Sun over the weekend, more details came out.
“So huge, huge love for Kate, she goes through hell, the family goes through hell. There is still hope, of course.
“And she said they were hoping for ‘this miracle’ – and we all hope with her. Such a huge love for Kate.
Kate’s husband Derek Draper is still in a coma 10 weeks after contracting the virus.
Psychologist Derek was hospitalized at the end of March after becoming a painssome and, due to the hospital’s strict hygiene rules, his family has not seen him in person since.
He tested positive for Covid-19, but although he is now free of the virus, he has caused considerable damage to his main organs and remains seriously ill.

Kate told The Sun exclusively about the devastating impact of Derek’s illness on her and their two children: Darcey, 14, and Billy, 10.
Shortly before being put into an induced coma to try to help his body fight the virus, Derek spoke to Kate on the phone and said, “You saved my life. I don’t mean now, I mean everything. Be married to you, and the children.
“We have to try to live with the uncertainty that we won’t necessarily know he’s okay.”
Three weeks ago, the hospital removed the drugs that had put Derek in an induced coma, but although he sometimes opened his eyes, he has not yet regained consciousness.
