Kate Garraway returned to the morning TV show after taking time off while her husband Derek Draper continues to battle coronavirus complications. 

Derek Draper, 52, was admitted to hospital with coronavirus in March and was put into a coma by doctors.

Last week, Garraway said during an interview with the ITV programme that her husband, who is receiving ongoing treatment, "sort of can't wake up" and doctors "don't know how much better" he will get.

"Wonderfully his eyes are opening but we have no real knowledge of what he can see and feel and hear," she said.

Garraway, who "waits at the end of the phone 24/7 for an update" on her husband's condition, said doctors have advised her to go back to work.

In an interview with Hello! magazine she said: "The children and Derek are all I've thought about and they're the most important people in my life, but I must create structure and normality for the children, to clean the bath, put the plates in the dishwasher, and tidy the house.

"I also need to get back to work so that I can provide for the children and we can do things together, to make them feel that the light hasn't gone out of their lives, that there's hope for the future.

Garraway and Draper, a former lobbyist and political adviser, planned to renew their wedding vows before he became ill. The couple married in 2005.

On Sunday, a post on the Good Morning Britain Twitter account said: "Kate Garraway is returning to GMB tomorrow! We can't wait."
