Good Morning Britain's Kate Garraway has said that she's "finding new ways of staying strong" as her husband Derek Draper continues to 'fight hard' against COVID-19.

Derek is still critically ill, having been hospitalised with the virus at the end of March.

Kate has since taken to Instagram tonight (May 28) to provide another update on his condition, admitting that her family is still fearful.

Sharing a video of her children Billy and Darcey clapping for the NHS, she wrote: "Hear this might be the last clap for carers so Billy thought we should get the drums out to go out in style!

"It's been such a source of weekly comfort for them & me & I must admit I felt the tears come tonight to think it's coming to an end while our fear for Derek goes on.

"But even if we don't clap next Thursday it won't diminish my eternal thanks to all in the #nhs . They are keeping Derek alive & everyone of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited."

She added: "Hope has to keep us all going doesn't it? I am having to find new ways of staying strong everyday for Darcey & Billy, as I know Derek would want me to. It's not easy but when I think of how hard Derek is fighting & the bravery of all in the #nhs it helps."

Last week, GMB co-presenter Piers Morgan sent his best wishes to Kate, telling viewers that she was "going through living hell".
