GMB's Kate Garraway says husband Derek Draper is back in hospital

While speaking on the show Garraway gave a health update on her husband revealing he was back in hospital. 

The GMB presenter said: "He's actually back in the hospital at the moment, I haven't talked about this, but not the horrific drama fortunately, because there have been lots of, as we all experience, referrals and cancellations."

"He's gotten back in for something that he began last year, which he needed the second part of which will hopefully mean he has more movement, physical fractures.

"So it's a positive hospital thing. So he's actually not at home at the moment."

She added: "But hopefully (he) won't be in for too long."

Talking about her book - The Strength of Love: Embracing an Uncertain Future with Resilience and Optimism - Garraway spoke about the caring role she plays for her husband and her feelings behind it, The Mirror reported.

Garraway, who also appeared on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here in 2019, said: "It's not that you want to be a 'poor me' about it because on the one hand I feel incredibly fortunate because so many hundreds of 1000s of people, everyday people lose people.

"I talk in the book about grief and it took me a long time to admit that as a family we were grieving because I felt guilty because actual bereavement, so many are going through.

"You feel that this is a lesser degree, but really, it is a kind of grief because you go through mini deaths when someone's very ill."
