Christmas is a time to spend with loved ones which can be devastating when a family member is unwell – heartbreak Kate Garraway is facing this year.
The Good Morning Britain presenter has been keeping viewers updated about the health of her husband Derek Draper, who has been in and out of hospital since 2020.
Derek, 56, has long-lasting damage to his organs due to a rare form of long Covid which left him in a coma and battling his own brain.
Kate confirmed her husband was back in hospital a few weeks ago for the second part of treatment which she had been desperate to get booked in before the festive season.
Not long ago, Derek took a terrifying turn when he turned blue and began choking but he has since stabilised and the family are hoping he is home for Christmas.

This will mean bringing all the in-laws round to the couple’s north London home so the family is able to spend plenty of time with Derek, who is unable to travel.
Kate shared she will be hosting everyone for almost a week of festivities and Christmas dinners, with her parents Marilyn and Gordon on hand to help out.
‘We’ll just get as much of the family, the Drapers and the Garraways, together – even if it’s not all on one day,’ added the presenter.
‘We’re treating it as a four or five-day season this year, so I’m going to be doing a lot of cooking. My mum and dad have already sorted the turkey from a farm where they live.’The pair have been married since 2005 and share two children (Picture: Dave M. Benett/Getty Images)
Hopefully, Derek will be home for Christmas, although Kate previously shared he is not always fully present as his mind has become his ‘enemy’.
Speaking on on new podcast Emotionally Speaking with host Peter Leonard, she shared: ‘He is living in the world of the unknown, when he wakes up in the morning it is heartbreaking because it feels as though you are watching someone who may have been inhabiting his old life in his dreams and then he wakes up and you see the cloud descend of the battle he has ahead.
Derek was a Labour Party aide to former cabinet minister Peter Mandelson and the pair have been married since 2005, sharing two children; Darcey and William.
