Kate Garraway vows 'I will find a way to make it better' to husband Derek Draper in heartbreaking new trailer

GOOD Morning Britain host Kate Garraway has told husband Derek Draper: "I will find a way to make it better."

The 53-year-old star is shown talking to her seriously ill partner on an iPad in a harrowing new trailer.

The clip, released by ITV today, also sees Kate screaming: "Derek, I miss you" while sorting through things at home.

The presenter, whose husband Derek was taken to hospital battling coronavirus a year ago, has made a documentary about his struggle.

While he has seen off the disease, it has left his body battered and Kate fears he may never be the same person again.

Today ITV released new footage from the film, which airs next week, showing Kate, 53, sorting through things at home.

Picking up a frame from a pile of items piled up by a door, she screams: "Derek, I miss you!"

The film also reveals the first footage of Derek, 53, seen since he was rushed to hospital in March 2020.

As he is shown in his intensive care bed in the trailer, Kate says: "Derek is the sickest person the team of doctors have treated that has lived.

"Is he going to be able to come back? Or will he be alive but no longer the person he was?"

Becoming overwhelmed with sadness, she adds: "You shouldn't have to think like that."

After contracting the virus more than a year ago, Derek faced an uphill battle to survive.

Coronavirus ravaged his body, his kidneys failed, he has liver and pancreas damage and his heart has stopped more than once.

Countless infections have left holes in his lungs and the battle has seen him lose eight stone.

However Kate said that doctors still can’t tell her whether Derek will recover – and they have warned her he may remain “locked in” for good.

Susanna Reid today called her co-star an "inspiration" as they hosted Good Morning Britain together.

Speaking about the documentary Kate said: "I think it is a moment for everyone as we release it has been a year that we have all been living with it.

"I began making the documentary in August rather hoping that Derek and I would be chatting with you and more recovery would have been possible but that hasn't been the case."

Susanna, 50, told her friend: "You're our inspiration, you know that."
