Watch: Kate Garraway gives update on husband’s condition
Good Morning Britain star Kate Garraway has told how her husband still goes through some “worrying downs” as he remains in hospital amid his coronavirus battle.
Derek Draper, the TV star’s husband of 15 years, fell ill in March and has been in hospital since then.
He is currently in "a minimal state of consciousness" after being in a coma for weeks, although he is now coronavirus-free.
Speaking on GMB, Garraway said Draper is “pretty stable” right now but that things are still up and down.
She told co-host Susanna Reid: "The problem is, I feel like I'm just boring everyone to death really because it ends up with the same thing, which is stable but actually in between when I’m not talking to you there are big ups and big downs.
