Kate Garraway gives an update on husband's battle with Covid-19

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway has given an update about her husband Derek Draper's Covid-19 fight.

In a heartfelt Instagram post read out by Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh, Kate once again shared her gratitude for the NHS during the latest Clap for Carers.

Referring to the possibility that the weekly Clap For Our Carers movement is coming to an end, Kate said: "Hear this might be the last clap for carers so Billy thought we should get the drums out to go out in style! It's been such a source of weekly comfort for them & me & I must admit I felt the tears come tonight to think it’s coming to an end while our fear for Derek goes on."

"But even if we don’t clap next Thursday it won’t diminish my eternal thanks to all in the #NHS. They are keeping Derek alive & everyone of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited. Hope has to keep us all going doesn’t it? I am having to find new ways of staying strong everyday for Darcey & Billy, as I know Derek would want me to. It’s not easy but when I think of how hard Derek is fighting & the bravery of all in the #NHS it helps. Thanks so much for all your messages & thanks for sharing on club Garraway.com. Standing together & learning from each other has to get us all through," she added.
