Derek Draper expects a touching visit from his parents this weekend as he prepares to see them for the first time in over a year.
The political lobbyist was the UK’s longest-serving hospital patient for Covid-19 after falling ill with the coronavirus last year.

His wife Kate Garraway is delighted that her husband has finally returned home this week after 12 devastating months.

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate, 53, was pictured as she was pictured outside her home in London on Friday.

Now his in-laws will have a reunion with their son in the days to come, it has been reported.

Her elderly parents, the grandparents of the couple’s children Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11, have kept in touch on Zoom and facetime.

Now they will see him for the first time in person since he fell into a coma last March.

A source told The Sun: “Poor Derek has had virtually no human interaction in the past 12 months, the only real physical contact he has had is with doctors and nurses.

“Her parents live in Lancashire and have suffered terribly throughout her illness.

“At the height of the lockdown, and after the introduction of the Tier system, they weren’t allowed to visit Derek – even after he became more responsive.

“Like all of Derek’s friends and family, they are delighted that their son is back home surrounded by those he loves.

The brave Kate confirmed on Friday that Derek is finally home.

But she said he had 24/7 care and stayed in the family’s living room in a hospital bed.

“It’s going to be very slow I’m afraid,” she revealed on GMB. “So physiotherapy and occupational therapy, speech therapy and language …”

She also added: “He can’t really move, we need a lot of help. “

On the news of Derek’s return home, a family friend said medical experts are now looking for unique ways to give him every chance of making a good recovery.

They added, “This past year has given Derek and Kate an absolutely unbreakable bond.

“She has been such a rock, and an utter inspiration to all who struggle with their own horror stories with Wicked Disease. “
