Kate Garraway has shared another emotional update from her family where she admits her husband is still "fighting hard" in his coronavirus battle.

The Good Morning Britain presenter has been offering weekly updates to her social media followers about Derek Draper, who is still critically ill in hospital after testing positive for the virus in March.

While Kate didn't explicitly says, her update appears to suggest that he is still in a coma.

The 53-year-old posted a message on Instagram, which she has done weekly following the weekly Clap for Carers, in which she said there were tears as it could be the last of the ritual.

Alongside a video she recorded of her children partaking in the event to applaud the work of frontline workers, Kate wrote: "hear this might be the last clap for carers so Billy thought we should get the drums out to go out in style!.

"Its 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 while our fear for Derek goes on.

"But even if we don't clap next Thursday it won't diminish my eternal thanks to all in the #nhs . They are keeping Derek alive & everyone of them is fighting as hard as Derek is to give us the chance to be reunited."

She continued: "Hope has to keep us all going doesn’t it ? I am having to find new ways of staying strong everyday for Darcey & Billy , as I know Derek would want me to.

"It's not easy but when I think of how hard Derek is fighting & the bravery of all in the #nhs it helps ."

She then thanked fans for all their messages and added: "Standing together & learning from each other has to get us all through."

Kate's GMB co-host Ben Shephard also read out the update on Friday's programme.

He added: "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."
