Kate Garraway has vowed to keep smiling as her husband remains in hospital.

The 53 year old, who was recently spotted looking gorgeous in a black mesh dress with green specks on it, took to her Instagram to share an inspirational quote she found written on the white board at her husband Derek Draper's ward.

It read: "To all the beautiful/handsome creatures This is for you… [sic]

""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. Smile," followed by several smiling faces drawn on with white board markers.

Hoping to encourage others to hang in there while the world continues to fight the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Kate wrote in the caption: "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 . [sic]

"Wonderful words as we brace ourselves for another week in these grim times- see you from 6 a.m on @gmb with a smile," [sic] followed by a smiling emoji and two pink heart emojis.

Celebrity friends were quick to comment as Kimberley Walsh posted a single red heart emoji while Kate Thornton wrote: "I love this. Sending love and strength Kate." alongside a red heart emoji.

Dr Alex George, who is working on the NHS front line, also commented underneath by posting a single blue heart emoji.

Covid-19 is an issue close to Kate's heart as her husband Derek, 53, recently became the longest Covid-19 case in the UK.

While speaking on GMB last week, Kate made an emotional plea to viewers to keep following government guidelines after host Susanna Reid, 49, asked how she's feeling about the nation's growing impatience towards masks and social distancing measures.

"I have huge sympathy with people who are fed up with it," Kate explained.

"I think if you haven't been directly touched by it, you haven't seen the devastation, your life has been devastated, your livelihood, your ability to feel a sense of joy, you're going to get frustrated.

"It does make me tempted to show a picture of Derek in his current state and say, 'You don't want this in your life. You don't know who it will affect and how.' So stick to it."

"There's huge confusion around it, but we kind of know wearing a mask, social distancing, we know the basics, and we have to do our best in the muddle. There are so many shades of grey. If we stick to basics we can hopefully get through it."

Clearly struggling to hold back tears, the mum-of-two added: "Derek's mum and dad haven't been able to see Derek. If they can go six months without giving a hug to their son, who's so desperately ill, the rest of us can probably get through.

"Sorry, I didn't mean to depress everybody. That's the reality of getting caught up in the virus directly."
