Kate Garraway says it is "amazing" to have husband Derek Draper home.

Former political adviser Draper, 53, was admitted in March last year with coronavirus symptoms, before being placed in a coma.

He was driven by ambulance to the couple's north London home on Wednesday, according to The Sun.

Draper has been taken off all machines and breathing apparatus but will receive 24-hour care at the property, which Garraway has adapted in his absence to make it more accessible.

Presenter Garraway told Good Morning Britain of the decision to bring him home: "It felt as though everything had stalled medically and, if anything, was going slightly back."

She said doctors decided "let's give this a go, get him home safely", to see whether being in the family environment helps.

He "absolutely knew he was home", she said.

Last month ITV broadcast Finding Derek, a documentary exploring Draper's illness and its effect on their two children - daughter Darcey, 15, and 11-year-old son Billy.

It detailed their experiences during Draper's illness and featured Good Morning Britain host Garraway, also 53, speaking to people suffering long Covid, NHS staff and other experts.

One scene saw her recall being told by Draper's doctors that he was the most seriously ill person they had seen who remained alive.

In another, Garraway was seen preparing for his possible return by making their home wheelchair-friendly.

She suggested they would have a "completely different dynamic" in their marriage when he is able to leave hospital.

Garraway is also publishing a book, called The Power Of Hope, detailing "the raw and emotional story" of her husband's illness.

During the first lockdown she posted weekly updates on Draper's recovery to coincide with the weekly Clap For Carers.
