Kate Garraway has opened up about the ‘tough’ mounting costs of caring for her husband Derek Draper. The former political advisor, 55, fell seriously ill with Covid-19 in March 2020 and was placed in a coma to help his body recover from the symptoms.

He was discharged from hospital the following year but suffered severe damage to his body, including his heart and lungs. The Good Morning Britain presenter, 55, has regularly shared updates about Derek’s health as she continues to care for him while he battles various long-term effects.

Kate revealed in 2021 she had converted their London home, where they live with their children Darcey, 16, and Billy, 13, to suit Derek’s needs, including installing a hospital bed in their lounge.

The broadcaster has now detailed the financial impact of Derek’s care, describing it as ‘tough’ and ‘through the roof. ’She told The Sun: ‘You have to make changes to your home and it affects your ability to work. ‘I had to take long periods off when Derek was first sick, and of course it affects the overall income for the family as he can no longer work. ’Kate also said that there was potentially an assumption the pair had recieved ‘special treatment’ due to her career but added they hadn’t bypassed any waiting lists. ‘We haven’t jumped any queues, which is just as it should be,’ she continued.
