Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway, 53, discussed her husband Derek Draper’s progress with her co-star Ben Shephard on the show this morning. She told viewers husband is “stable” but left nurses concerned after his blood pressure dropped and clots were discovered in his lungs.

Detailing his progress, the mother-of-two said: “He had a tough week last week.

“He had two big falls in blood pressure, which were worrying staff and swelling in his legs, which was concerning in case it might be clots… we know that COVID can cause clotting.

“He has had clots in his lungs. I suppose the concern might be if there are any new clots forming now and he hasn’t got an active COVID virus.”

But despite the concerning change, Kate said her long-term spoke is “stable” and opened his eyes when Good Morning Britain was on yesterday.

She added: “He is stable and yesterday I spoke to the nurses and they had put Good Morning Britain on and they felt, because his eyes were open, that he looked focused and engaged.

“I found it very emotional. We don’t know if it was the moving of the light or the familiar voices.”
