Kate Garraway is reportedly set to front a new ITV documentary about the coronavirus pandemic – where she will talk about her husband Derek Draper who is currently recovering from the virus.
It is understood that in the documentary, the Good Morning Britain presenter will speak to survivors of the disease, as well as NHS workers on the frontline.
‘Kate has been seen on GMB regularly talking about Derek and his ongoing battle against coronavirus and now she has decided to use her viewpoint to make a documentary,’ a source began.
‘As well as looking at what she had gone through the programme will also speak to survivors of the disease, people on the frontline and economic experts who will give insight about the impact of coronavirus.’
‘The idea is to look at the virus and its impact in a number of different ways to show how it has affected so many people around the country,’ the source added to the Daily Mirror.
Kate’s husband Derek was first hospitalised in March after falling ill with Covid-19.
He was initially placed into a medically induced coma and was placed in intensive care after his symptoms worsened.
While he is now believed to be coronavirus free, Derek is still battling the impact the infection has had on his body.
Earlier this month, Kate gave GMB viewers an update of her husband’s condition.
She told her co-host Susanna Reid: ‘I’m doing ok… the problem is, is that I feel I’m just boring everyone to death. It’s the same thing, he’s stable.
‘In between, there’s big ups and big downs – well, not big ups, small improvements. The last few days have been pretty stable, so fingers crossed, really.’
Since March, more than 44,000 people in the UK have died from coronavirus, while over 942,000 people have contracted the disease.
