In an emotional moment on today's Good Morning Britain, Susanna said: "I know I speak for all of the team and all of our viewers when we send our love to Kate Garraway and her husband Derek Draper.

"We send him every ounce of strength as he recovers from coronavirus and our love to Kate."

Piers then called the situation "agonising for everyone involved."

The pair previously reached out to their Good Morning Britain co-star after news of Derek's condition went public.

Acknowledging that he'd been aware of his friend's situation beforehand, Piers tweeted: "Now it’s been made public, I can say this horrendous situation has brought the coronavirus crisis sharply into the hearts of all of us @GMB.

"My love & prayers to Kate & Derek."

Susanna also messaged support, simply writing: "All my love to Kate and Derek."

Derek, 52, was rushed to hospital with COVID-19 symptoms on March 30, leaving Kate "sick with worry".


A source previously told us: "This is a desperate situation for Kate who is sick with worry about Derek’s health.

"He is intensive care battling coronavirus and for obvious reasons she is beside herself.

"Kate has symptoms herself too but they are mild so she is self-isolating at home with the kids.

"She is obviously off TV too. Everyone at GMB is so worried for her."



A spokesperson for Kate added: "Kate’s husband Derek Draper has been taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive care with a confirmed case of Covid-19.

"He was admitted on Monday and has since tested positive for the virus.

"Kate hasn’t been tested however she has also been displaying mild symptoms, also since Monday, and as a result has been on strict isolation with her children at home."
