Good Morning Britain fans concerned for Kate Garraway amid husband Dereks health battle

Kate Garraway's husband Derek Draper's ill health has been the topic of concern as of late after worried fans took to social media to ask for an update.

The Good Morning Britain presenter has been caring for her spouse, 54, since his Covid-19 battle back in March 2020 which left him in a critical condition – making him one of the country's longest-suffering patients after he spent 13 months in hospital.

However, since the star, 55, returned back to her ITV duties on August 1 – following Derek's recent hospital dash with severe sepsis several weeks ago, fans of GMB have been tweeting their concern for the star.

A topic about Archie Battersbee, a young boy who has been the subject of a health debate after campaigns to keep his life support switched on, sparked further concern about Kate's wellbeing.

One Twitter user said: "You and your family have been through much, but especially poor Derek. I wish him a speedy recovery and fingers crossed you can have him home soon xxx"

While another said: "Best Wishes Kate, you've really been through the mill. You've been incredibly positive and I do wish you and your husband well."

As a third wrote: "Gosh this lady I admire to support her hubby the way she does and carry on working every day to keep her family together god bless her and all the family".

"Omg Kate so sorry Derek is still suffering, u r an absolute legend star power of strength. Amazing mom & wife sending loads of love to the 4 of u," a fourth quipped.

“Kate, you’re incredible. Everyone loves you. Hope Derek is better and back home soon,” said a fifth.

Derek has been left fighting a number of health problems ever since he caught Coronavirus and is still receiving specialist care.

Kate pulled out of her presenting duties on ITV in mid-July after her husband was rushed back to the hospital.

At the time, a source told The Sun: “Derek has been taken back to hospital this morning in a very serious condition.

“The family are very worried about him but Derek is in the best hands."

They went on: "Kate is by his side and is keeping it together as best she can. She’s a total professional and devoted to her work – both on Good Morning Britain and Smooth – but she had no choice but to step away this week to be there with him.

“This is an incredibly difficult time for her and their family.”
