Kate Garraway was hailed as “bold and inspiring” by fans ahead of her documentary “Caring for Derek” tonight.
The 54-year-old former lobbyist contracted Covid in March 2020 and spent over a year in the hospital before finally returning home last April.
In March 2021, ITV released an award-winning documentary about Derek’s battle with Covid – Kate Garraway: Looking for Derek.
The next documentary titled “Caring for Derek” will premiere on the commercial channel tonight.
He will talk about the first moments of his return home and how his wife, the GMB star, and their children take care of him in their London home.
Many took to Twitter to praise Kate and the rest of her family for the courage to share their story with others.
One tweeted: “I will be watching the search for Derek tonight on ITV at 9pm. I just wish Kate Garraway and the whole family all the best from me Sean.”
Another said: “Kate you are truly an inspiring beautiful woman with the care you show for your husband Derek as he is still struggling with the effects of Covid I sincerely hope and pray that he continues to progress in his recovery.”
A third added: “Hi Kate, I really admire you and your strength in these truly extreme and turbulent times – your family and your qualities as a person go far beyond any descriptive power – you and your family are always in my thoughts.”
“Kate, you are an incredible, exceptionally beautiful strong woman, your love for Derick and your children shines through the difficult times you have had to go through. I will be watching your award-winning documentary tonight (probably in tears). I think you should have been an MBE,” a fourth tweeted.
Earlier this month it was reported that Derek would die within three days if he was left without the help of specialists.
Viewers will once again see how the couple was affected by the serious illness of the former political strategist.
Kate helped heal her husband, and the program will let you learn about the daily routine of taking care of a weak Derek.
Although he still needs 24-hour expert help – if left unassisted, he will die within three days – Kate continues to do it herself.
- ‘Caring for Derek’ airs tonight on ITV1 at 9pm.
