Piers Morgan has been left heartbroken by pictures of his Good Morning Britain co-host Kate Garraway in tears as her husband remains in a coma after being struck down by coronavirus.
It was revealed at the end of March that Kate's other half, former Labour MP Derek Draper was in intensive care after contracting COVID-19, with Kate and children Billy and Darcy unable to see him.
Unfortunately, Derek's condition quickly worsened, with him now being in a coma for weeks and Kate and her GMB colleagues sharing emotional updates about him and I'm A Celebrity star Kate video calling him on Thursday nights during the weekly Clap for Carers.
Kate was captured wiping away tears during what was thought to be the final clap on Thursday night and reacting to a picture of her looking upset, Piers tweeted: "This breaks my heart. Few happier, more positive people than @kategarrawa y
Or a more loyal, decent friend & colleague. So many families like hers going through so much unimaginable anguish in this crisis. Sending all my love to Kate & continuing to root for Derek."
Kate herself shared an update after the Clap for Carers, writing: "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. 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 .
"Thanks so much for all your messages & thanks for sharing on club Garraway.com . Standing together & learning from each other has to get us all through."
