Kate Garraway has shared a touching photo that she took on husband Derek Draper’s hospital ward.
The Good Morning Britain host, 53, is going through a tough time as her beloved husband Derek continues to recover from Covid-19 and remains in hospital.
And when she visited her husband on Sunday she took a snap of a sign erected in the ward – where Derek is staying – and uploaded the photo to her Instagram page.
The board was covered in pen that read: “To all beautiful/handsome creatures. This is for you.
“Don’t give up on this year. Keep fighting for the good. Keep showing up. Keep loving.
“Keep giving back. Keep being kind. Keep being brave. Keep on caring.
“Keep trying new things. Keep showing grace. Keep on.
“The world needs you to believe in the good.
“2021 is coming. Hold on.”
Proving that the journalist was touched by the sign, she captioned the image: “Written on a white board on Derek’s ward to spur on staff and patients – not sure if have walked passed it before or its new, but definitely spoke to me today.
“Wonderful words as we brace ourselves for another week in this grim times- see you from 6 a.m on @gmb with a smile.”
Derek – who Kate shares children Billy and Darcey with – was hospitalised in March after contracting coronavirus.
He was later put into an induced coma which lasted 13 weeks – which he woke up from in July but he is still on a long road to recovery and remains in hospital.
Derek’s recovery will be a slow process as the virus has “attacked everything”, leaving him with clots in his lungs, holes in his heart and made him diabetic, and doctors have warned Kate that Derek might never recover from the damage done to his body.
Devastating news of Derek’s condition saw Kate take an extended leave from GMB to be with her family, before defiantly returning to the show in July with her head held high.
