Kate, 54, discussed her husband Derek’s devastating battle recovering from Covid during Sunday’s episode.

Derek was admitted to hospital in March 2020 after contracting Covid. The former Labour lobbyist was then placed in a medically induced coma to give his body time to recover from the virus, but did not wake up until several months later with his body ravaged from the disease.

However, Derek continued to defy the odds and was released from hospital in April allowing him to continue recovery at home with Kate and their two children Billy and Darcey. 

Sharing an update on her husband’s condition, Kate told Piers: ‘It’s moments like that which make you realise he is there, and we have had others. He will turn to me and say “I love you”. He is there, he has fought so hard to stay in this world and I’m not giving up on him, ever.

‘He will have moments of clarity, then it’s like he disappears but then he finds a voice.’

Piers Morgan’s Life Stories with Kate Garraway is available to watch on ITV Hub.
