    Another penned: “Such a wonderful life-affirming moment when we see nature bursting into bloom. Hope things improve for you and yours.”

    A third commented: “You are so amazing Kate. Hope Derek and children are okay xx.

    As a fourth said: “Massive hugs and love to you all xx.”

    The update comes after Kate uploaded a rare picture of Derek smiling from his bed at home during the weekend, with the broadcaster paying tribute to his "inspiring" carer, Jake, who has been supporting the family during Derek’s ordeal.

    Derek requires constant medical attention after Covid complications left him fighting for his life in 2020.

    The presenter added that the family had just found out that Jake was an "amazing musician", under the name Sency Miller.
