Good Morning Britain host Kate Garraway, 53, opened up about the handwritten letter she received from Prime Minister Boris Johnson, 56, which made her see a "very human side" to politicians. The ITV star said many have been "staggeringly supportive" while her husband Derek Draper has been battling on in hospital after being admitted to hospital with coronavirus in March.
Boris handwrote me a really lovely note.
Kate recently revealed that she has been given much support throughout the time her husband has been in intensive care.
Derek, a former political lobbyist, is now out of an induced coma but remains under critical care in hospital.
He fell ill at the start of lockdown, and after being advised by GMB's Dr Hilary Jones, he was rushed to A&E.
In a new interview, Kate revealed she had even been supported by Boris Johnson, who was hospitalised with COVID-19 back in April.

"Boris handwrote me a really lovely note and Carrie [his fiancee] has sent us messages via other people," she said.
"So I have seen a very human side to them."
She added in her interview with You magazine: "Boris's public face gets a lot of stick but the challenge is that politicians are in the dark like us."
Mr Johnson was admitted to St Thomas' Hospital in London for tests 10 days after he tested positive for coronavirus.
