Good Morning Britain host Ben Shephard sent an emotional message of support to Kate Garraway this morning after she was pictured crying during last night's clap for carers.
Brits across the country applauded our NHS heroes and front line workers one final time after the founder of the weekly tradition called for yesterday's tribute to be the last one.
Kate was pictured tearing up during the final clap for carers as her husband Derek continues to battle coronavirus in intensive care, the Mirror Online reports.
Both Ben and GMB co-host Ranvir Singh gave an emotional update on Derek's condition, which you can watch above, during this morning's show.
Fighting back tears, Ben went on to read out Kate's latest message on Instagram.
She wrote: "Hear this might be the last clap for carers so Billy thought we should get the drums out to go out in style!
"It's been such a source of weekly comfort for them & me & I must admit I felt the tears come tonight to think it’s coming to an end before Derek’s ordeal with us...
"But whether we clap or not next Thursday my eternal thanks to all in the NHS goes on.
"They are keeping Derek alive & everyone of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited."
Ranvir responded: "Hope has to keep us all going, doesn't it?
"And having to find new ways, as she said, to stay strong for Darcey and Billy, as you saw there in that video as she knows she would have wanted Derek for her to do."
Ben continued: "She goes on to say, 'It's not easy when I think of how hard Derek is fighting and the bravery of all in the NHS helps. Thanks so much for all your messages and thanks for sharing on club Garraway.com. Standing together and learning from each other has to get us all through.'
"So we are sending love, obviously, to Kate, Derek, Darcey and Bill and to all of you out there that are still fighting, waiting and desperately helping."
Good Morning Britain viewers also sent their love to Kate on social media.
One Twitter user wrote: "Feel so sorry for Kate....she hasn’t seen her hubby for 2 months as he battled the virus. #StayStrongKate."
Another added: "Very best wishes to you and your family Kate."
"Aww they must be in turmoil. Thoughts are with them," a third said.
