Kate Garraway reveals Covid-stricken husband Derek Draper can still barely talk nearly a month after returning home
KATE Garraway has revealed Covid-hit husband Derek Draper can still barely talk nearly a month after returning home from hospital.
The TV presenter, 53, praised her children as her “heroes” for adapting so well as their dad continues to recover.
Speaking on Radio 2 to Zoe Ball yesterday, she explained how Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11, had found his return after a year of being in intensive care.
She said: “He isn’t really able to speak at the moment so he can’t tell them off.
"I have to be the bad guy! They are my heroes.
"They know instinctively how to talk to him but not ask too much from him.”
She said Derek, also 53, needs “24-hour care” but added: “The hope is he will be able to progress.”
The Sun revealed that Kate — who has bravely continued working throughout much of her husband’s illness — has spent thousands of pounds adapting their home for his return.
