Kate Garraway, 53, has been opening up about life with Derek Draper, 53, now he has been brought home to continue his recovery. During a new interview ahead of her book being released, she became tearful as she revealed an update.

Speaking to Iain Dale on his LBC programme, Kate detailed what Derek has said to her since his return.

In an emotional moment for both presenter and interviewee, Kate spoke about how he had told her he loved her.

She explained about how he is now: “There’s definitely a connection and he’s told me he loves me, you know?”

Iain then admitted how this was going to set him off crying as well, as Kate revealed more about this.

She added: “It’s huge, isn’t it? I hope he knows what it means.

“Sorry, I mean when he said ‘I love you’, it’s unimaginable, isn’t it?

“Because I don’t know if he remembers me or who I am or if I’m a disembodied voice or someone that’s caring.”

Kate’s Global Radio colleague then reassured her how he would not have said it if he hadn’t meant it.

Iain replied: “He wouldn’t say that if he didn’t know who you were.”

Kate then added: “I don’t think so, I hope not and I hope that he can be able to express that love for me and all the people that he loves and for his children and his family.

“I hope he gets to express that in a way I know he wants to.”

Visibly emotional, she then added: “You’re getting me going now Iain, oh you’re evil.”

Over the time since he has been placed in a medically induced coma as well as being woken up to assess his recovery.

Kate then brought him home at the beginning of April after consulting with his doctors.

Carers are looking after him on a 24/7 basis but he is now spending more time around his family.

He and Kate are parents to two children, Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11.

Speaking about bringing Derek home on Good Morning Britain, she said: “As we pulled up, I could see two little faces.

“Darcey and Billy looking out the window, and I could literally see them go, ‘He’s here’.

“And they sort of ran out and ran forward, opened the door, and he immediately burst into tears.”
