How is Kate Garraway's husband doing?
The former Labour party guru remains in hospital after catching Covid a year ago.
Derek, a psychologist and psychotherapist, no longer has the virus.
But countless infections have left him with holes in his lungs and he has lost eight stone.
Derek has been left with kidney failure, damage to his liver and pancreas and heart failure.
Derek was reduced to tears as he woke from his medically-induced coma.
Kate revealed that her husband will need "specialist care" when he finally leaves hospital.
Speaking on GMB, she said: "The truth is as much as I may think I have the answers all the time, Derek doesn’t need me. I'm not the person to care for him.
"I obviously will be there 100 per cent completely if Derek needs me, but what he needs is specialist, professional, medical support ongoing – because there is a good chance that he can improve but we need to make sure the support is there now."
The GMB star has been giving fans regular updates on how the 53-year-old is doing.
A new documentary called Kate Garraway: Finding Derek – which airs tonight – will track Derek's fight for his life.
