On Friday’s episode of Good Morning Britain, she gave an update on her husband’s condition, three months after he was discharged from hospital to stay in their family home.
The mother-of-two explained that although Derek had been allowed to move home, that didn’t mean he was ‘out of the woods’ and still needed time and plenty of care if he hoped to keep recovering.
As Alastair asked how Derek was feeling, Kate replied: ‘He’s alright, he’s alright. He’s very up and down, we’re certainly not a long way out of the woods.’

All packed: It’s unclear why the presenter had a suitcase with her on Friday
Referring to why he came home from hospital in April, Kate explained: ‘Not because he was better, no. But being home has meant we’ve seen some things improved.
‘Definitely having the family around, having the children around has provided stimulation.
‘I think the problem is you latch on to the positives, which is good because you have to, but there’s absolutely no doubt that there’s huge challenges ahead’.
In April, Derek returned to the family home he shares with Kate and their two children, Darcey, 15, and Billy, 11.
It has been confirmed that Derek is Britain’s longest surviving Covid hospital patient after he was first admitted with breathing difficulties on March 30 last year.
Derek was put on a ventilator and spent months in a form of coma before uttering his first word – ‘pain’ – in October last year.
The father of two’s body has been ‘universally affected’ by the condition, which means that it has targeted his lungs, heart, kidneys, liver and pancreas.
