Kate Garraway had ‘personal message’ from Boris Johnson about Derek’s health
Kate Garraway has said she received a "very personal" note from Prime Minister Boris Johnson after her husband Derek Draper fell ill with coronavirus.
Former political adviser Draper, 53, was hospitalised for a year after being admitted with coronavirus symptoms and being placed in a coma.
The Good Morning Britain presenter told Times Radio it was "lovely" to receive the message from the Prime Minister.
She said: "Boris Johnson actually wrote a really, really very personal note reflecting on things that he and Derek had been involved in together and his impression of him as a person, and also thinking of me and the children.
The breakfast host also discussed Boris’ fiancée Carrie and said she understands she's had a tough time dealing with the Prime Minister when he caught covid last year.
She continued: "And also Carrie as well, who I think has had a tough time, particularly when Boris was ill and she was pregnant with a first child.
"I think she has had a challenging time dealing with that. Mercifully, his health is great now but they must have had some dark moments as well during that period.
"So I thought it was lovely that he felt that he should and could and did actually drop me a note. So that was lovely."
Garraway spoke openly about the next steps for her and said her family are starting a "whole new chapter" now Draper has returned home.
Speaking on Derek’s progress, Kate proclaimed: "I believe he will improve. I think we've all been changed by what we've been through actually," she said.
"The whole country has been changed by what we've been through.
"So I don't think he'll be exactly the same person again. I don't think I will be actually or any of us will be.
"I don't think you will be either. I think we've all been so affected by the pandemic generally."
Presenter Kate has continually kept the nation in the loop with her husband’s covid battle.
In March she appeared in the ITV documentary Finding Derek which allowed viewers to see the impact of Covid-19 on Derek, Kate and their children.
The former I’m A Celeb contestant also released her book The Power Of Hope: The Moving Memoir from TV’s Kate Garraway which she describes as "a story of love, fear and never giving up."
