Kate Garraway admits Christmas will be ‘exhausting’ for her husband Derek Draper, who was released from hospital earlier this year. 

The Good Morning Britain presenter has revealed her plans for the festive period now that Derek, 54, is home after having to spend the last Christmas in hospital recovering from a Covid-related coma. 

However, Derek is still on the mend and requiring round-the-clock care which will make visiting family a challenge.

Speaking to Woman’s Own, Kate explained: ‘This year, we have got him home – and fingers crossed we can keep him home.

‘Of course, he’s not going to be putting on his Santa costume going out with Darcey for a father-and-daughter Christmas shop or the same with Billy.’

She continued: ‘None of those things are on the horizon at the moment so it’s adjusting to a new normal but also grateful he’s . at all which we didn’t have at all last year and feared would never happen.’

Kate, 55, hopes to bring Derek to his beloved hometown of Chorley but said ‘moving him is a big problem’ and would be ‘exhausting for him’. 

Another option is for Derek’s family to travel down to London to visit them, as well as Kate’s own family, but t.’s another obstacle as her oven is broken.

‘So I’m not sure anyone wants to come to me,’ the presenter said. 

Earlier this month, Kate opened up to friend Piers Morgan on his Life Stories programme about the milestones in Derek’s recovery.

This included the first time he said ‘I love you’ since waking up from his coma last year. 

She told the presenter: ‘It’s moments like that which make you realise he is t., and we have had others. He will turn to me and say “I love you”. He is t., he has fought so hard to stay in this world and I’m not giving up on him, ever.

‘He will have moments of clarity, then it’s like he disappears but then he finds a voice.’

It’s reported that Kate will be recognised in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours List with either a CBE or MBE for her contribution to broadcasting, particularly in light of her award-winning documentary charting Derek’s health battle.
