Daily Star’s Inside Hot TV newsletter sees Ed Gleave send you telly’s hot takes straight to your inbox every Sunday

Kate Garraway, 53, has been praised by Good Morning Britain viewers after the first trailer for her upcoming documentary special Finding Derek was aired on ITV.

The short teaser contained raw home footage of Kate's husband Derek Draper laying in a hospital bed with tubes going in and out of him.

Derek was placed into a medically induced coma by doctors in bid to give him the best chance of beating coronavirus after being hospitalised in March 2020.

While he is now Covid-19 free, the virus has wreaked havoc on his organs.

As a result Derek has not left hospital for a year.

Taking to Twitter as the short clip was aired, one fan tweeted: "Kate Garraway is an amazing strong lady."

Another added: "@kategarraway I saw the trailer for Finding Derek. OMG in tears at 7:30am.

"Sending you and the kids so much love. I will watch it next week and probably be in tears all the way through. You're such an inspiration Kate and so bloody strong."

A third continued: "Bless them both. I'm shocked what this terrible virus can do. Love to both of you."

Speaking in the trailer, mum-of-two Kate said: ""Derek is the sickest person the team of doctors have treated this year."

"Is he going to be able to come back or will he be alive but no longer the person he was?"

Derek is understood to have suffered kidney failure as well as serious damage to his liver and his pancreas.

On top of that, he also is said to have 'holes is in his heart'.

It's still not known what type of life he will eventually be able to lead or if he will be ever released from hospital.

In a shocking revelation, Kate says she feared Derek has passed away after a hospital mix up.

She recalled to The Sunday Times that she was left "just sitting on the phone waiting to know if he'd died or not" in the early stages of his Covid battle.

Kate explained how a hospital worker told her: "He may have died. Somebody will call you back."

She then had a harrowing 24 hours in limbo. Luckily, it was an error.

She added: "Then it turned out that somebody had died who had a similar name to his."

The documentary will air on March 23 at 9pm on ITV.
