An emotional Kate Garraway broke down as she discussed husband Derek's health battle during an appearance on Friday's Lorraine. 

The Good Morning host, 55, admitted that there 'is no end point' to his care and her new way of life can be 'exhausting' for those around her. 

Derek is one of the UK's longest-suffering patients of Covid after being admitted to hospital with the virus in March 2020, only returning to the family's London home in April 2021, where he receives round-the-clock care.

She told host Lorraine Kelly: 'And the thing is when it’s a long battle like with Derek, there's no end point and it can be exhausting for the people around me too'.

'I know sometimes people say “oh she's talking about that again” but what I’ve learnt is you only really know what it feels like unless you’re in it'. 

Before adding: 'And now I get contacted by thousands and thousands of people who make me feel less alone'.

Kate joined co-host Ben Shephard to discuss ITV's GMB’s loneliness campaign and took the opportunity to thank him for his unwavering support. 

Ben teased: 'Kate is so incredible in the way that she’s juggling all these balls in her life. I go to her house and my instinct is to put everything in the bin and get rid of all the junk she’s got lying about in there'.

Kate replied: 'Ben, all jokes aside and as cheeky that he can be, has been amazing'.
