Roman Kemp has said he is "praying every day" for Kate Garraway as her husband Derek Draper remains hospitalised after initially being admitted with the coronavirus in late March.

Draper is now free of COVID-19 but after being put into an induced coma, he is yet to regain consciousness.

"All I can say is Kate has all the love in the world from myself and my dad and my whole family," he told the Metro.

Kemp, 27, appeared on the 2019 edition of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here! with Garraway and the pair also host radio shows on stations owned by Global, presenting their shows from their Leicester Square studios.

Kate Garraway has shared an update on the condition of her husband, who is being treated in hospital for the coronavirus, to say he "remains in intensive care and is still very ill".

He went on: "We’re praying for her every day and we’re always sending messages and doing whatever we can to make her life any bit easier.

“And I think it’s a real thing that makes everyone put their own life into perspective, because what she’s going through right now is more important than anything."

In an appearance on Good Morning Britain earlier this month, Garraway, 53, said it was not clear if her husband would recover as the coronavirus had “wreaked extraordinary damage on his body”.

“The doctors talk in double negatives. You have to take comfort from the double negatives. They say ‘We can’t say he can’t recover, we don't know if he can recover and we don’t know how long it will take,’" she went on.
