Kate Garraway on husband arriving home from hospital

Kate Garraway has confirmed that her husband, Derek Draper, has returned home after spending more than a year in hospital being treated for coronavirus.

Mr Draper, a former political advisor, was admitted to hospital in March with Covid-19 symptoms before eventually being placed in a coma.

The 53-year-old’s condition and the impact it was having on his family (the couple have two children together, Darcey, 15, Billy, 11) was explored in depth in an ITV documentary, Finding Derek, which aired last month.

Now, speaking on Good Morning Britain about her husband’s return, Garraway has described it as “amazing” to have him back.
