FINDING DEREK: KATE GARRAWAY TO FRONT ITV DOCUMENTARY
In a special one-off film, Kate Garraway offers an intimate insight into coping with the impact of Covid-19 as her husband Derek Draper remains seriously ill a year on from contracting the virus.
Presenter and journalist Kate offers an unflinching account of the profound effects on her family and on others as she opens up on camera for the first time on the reality of the past 12 months.
As Derek, who was hospitalised in March 2020 with the virus, remains in hospital with severe health issues, Kate also meets survivors of the disease and discusses the somewhat unknown, longer-term effects of the virus.
As Kate lays bare in the film, her family, along with many others who have suffered the effects of the virus, is now facing the reality of adjusting to a very different way of life to the one they lived before the pandemic hit.
