Kate Garraway reveals husband Derek Draper has beat coronavirus — but doctors are unsure if he’ll survive damage caused

Kate Garraway has left viewers in tears after taking to Good Morning Britain to update fans on her husband's coronavirus battle.

Derek Draper, 52, has been in intensive care since 30 March after being hit by the deadly bug.

The 53 year old presenter has now taken to her ITV breakfast show for the first time since Derek fell ill and given fans a new update in an extremely moving interview.

Speaking to Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh, the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! star revealed her husband has now tested negative for coronavirus, but doctors are unsure he will be able to survive the effect it has had on his body.

She said: "He is now Covid free, so he's testing negative for the Covid virus, so the fight with the virus has been won and he's still here.

"But it's reeked extraordinary damage on his body and we don't know if he can recover from that."

Kate continued: "He's still with us, he fought the most extraordinary battle, and I hate the idea of fighting a battle because it is a battle but, you know, the fact that he's still here and is holding on, I hate the idea that other people haven't fought hard enough or something, and I'm just so grateful that he's still here and I've got the option of praying and hoping when others have had that stripped away.

"He is very, very sick and as time goes on… it's a virus, it's a little bit like a computer virus, I think. Doctors manage one bit extraordinarily well and there seems to be a flicker of hope, and then other things emerge and they're fighting that. It's affected him for the top of his head to the tip of his toes."
