Kate Garraway has issued a new work update while her husband Derek Draper remains in hospital.

Derek recently returned to the hospital following a breakdown in his condition.

Kate has since described the experience as a “frightening and unexpected” turn for the worse.

As a result, the ITV star has been absent from Good Morning Britain while she stayed with him as he fought for his life again.

However, the presenter now appears to be getting back to work.
