Kate Garraway took to Instagram to update her followers on her husband Derek's battle with COVID-19 in the hospital. She gives an update every Thursday evening after the #NHSClap. 

Kate Garraway shared a lovely video of her son, Billy, who made a little Lego platform with all the members of their family. His Dad, Derek, is in the middle standing on a platform. The post's caption also explains that Kate had Derek on FaceTime during the clap for carers last night, which is why she didn't post a video of the clapping.

Kate Garraway Shares Update On Husband Derek

"So our #nhsclap was a little different tonight. We still clapped & cheered as much as ever but I couldn’t film on my phone as had Derek on FaceTime throughout! - of course we can’t KNOW but I believe he can hear us & thought at least the incredible @nhs team’s looking after him would hear a fraction of our gratitude," the Good Morning Britain presenter wrote.

So our #nhsclap was a little different tonight. We still clapped & cheered as much as ever but I couldn't film on my phone as had Derek on FaceTime throughout! - ofcourse we can't KNOW but I believe he can hear us & thought at least the incredible @nhs team's looking after him would hear a fraction of our gratitude. Billy made this for his Dad's carers to show how much he means to our family & to say thank you for fighting to bring him back to us. I am hoping they will let Derek have it by his bed. But even if they can't THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts - you are superheroes . Love to all in these terrible times - the separation from loved ones whatever the reason is so tough . #staystrong #staypositive #keephopealive
