British broadcaster Kate Garraway has revealed that she is unable to visit her husband Derek Draper on the couple's 15th wedding anniversary.

During her appearance on ITV's Good Morning Britain on Thursday, she explained her ordeal, as Derek remains in a critical condition in hospital on what would otherwise be a very special day.

The 53-year-old has been in a critical condition in hospital since March due to Covid-19 and continues to be in intensive care in a minimally conscious state.

"15 years today," she told hosts Susanna Reid and Adil Ray. "Richard [Arnold] and [Dr] Hilary were there on the day, weren't you both? But, yeah, what an extraordinary thing."

Kate continued: "I won't be able to see him today. I kind of hoped I would but it hasn't worked out that way for the visit. But maybe it would be a bit strange anyway. So yeah, it's a tough day. But, he's still here. There's not a huge amount of change.

"It's very strange when I haven't seen you for ages [Susanna], and Adil I haven't seen you for a couple of weeks either, and so much happens in that couple of weeks, there's so many sort of seeming positives and plungings but actually when I see people again, it's just the same.

"But you have to think, well at least he's here with you. You have a flicker, and then you have a bad day, but you've just got to keep going really."
