Kate Garraway today opened up about her husband's battle with coronavirus in an emotional interview on Good Morning Britain.
Kate's husband Derek Draper continues to fight for his life after the 52-year-old was taken to hospital at the end of March.
He has been in hospital for almost 10 weeks.
Though he has now tested negative for coronavirus, he remains incredibly ill.
Appearing via video link on the popular breakfast show to speak with presenters Ben Shephard and Ranvir Singh, Kate said: "It's like a second ago and 10 years ago.
"He's still with us, he's fought the most extraordinary battle and I hate the idea of that, fighting a battle because it is a battle but you know, the fact that he's still here and is holding on, I hate the idea that other people 'haven't fought hard enough' or something.
"I am just so grateful he's still here and I've got the option of praying and hoping when others have had that stripped away but he's very, very sick and as time goes on, it's a virus, it's a little bit like a computer virus I think - it's like the doctors manage one bit extraordinarily well and there seems to be a flicker of hope and then other things emerge and they're fighting that and it's affected him from top of his head to tip of his toes."
Kate explained Derek is now Covid free but is still suffering the consequences of the virus.
She said: "It's wreaked extraordinary damage on his body and we don't know if he can recover from that."
Kate said she has "huge hope and massive positivity" but the doctors "don't know" if her husband will make a full recovery.
Kate added: "One doctor said to me he's the worst affected person who's lived.
"They talk about an evil virus and it is - it is an evil virus.
"... we think of Covid as something where you live or it takes you - I've had it mercifully ... but now what we're seeing is people who are living with completely unseen consequences."
She added "it's a war" for the doctors in the face of the pandemic.
Kate explained it began when Derek had a painful shoulder and felt really unwell but was home tutoring their children and taking painkillers.
Kate said he didn't "look right" and confessed she had a "weird feeling", but as he didn't have a cough or a high temperature, they believed it was sinisitus.
She said there was "no real feeling it was Covid", until his condition took a turn for the worse at the end of March.
As Derek continued to look worse, Kate said she called Dr Hilary who did some breathing tests to test for capacity with Derek over the phone before telling her to call an ambulance.
In hospital, Kate said Derek told her he felt like he was suffocating and begged to be put into an induced coma and as his condition deteriorated, doctors made the decision to put him in the coma.
Before he went under, Kate said Derek told her, "you've saved my life, I don't just mean now, I mean everything".
Kate was regularly overcome with emotion and broke down in tears while discussing her family's traumatic experience.
She praised her children and hospital staff for their support over the last 10 weeks and thanked the public for being "amazing" and "so lovely".
Kate has been providing updates on Derek's condition on Instagram in weekly posts which coincided with Clap for Carers.
As last week's was the last one, Kate still took to her Instagram page last night and shared a video of herself with her two children clapping.
She wrote: "No official #clapforcarers tonight but we just wanted have our own mini one as our heart felt thanks go on to all fighting to keep Derek with us.
"Tomorrow I will have the chance to update you & thank you for all your support on @gmb - see you at seven."
During last week's Clap for Carers, which organiser Annemarie Plas called to be the last one, Kate was pictured in tears as she paid tribute to the NHS workers looking after her husband.
