Piers Morgan has today given an update on Kate Garraway’s husband’s health. Derek Draper was rushed to hospital in March last year with a headache and breathing issues.

Piers said it felt “desperately unfair” that, unlike Derek, he had been vaccinated against Covid.

Writing in his latest column, the outspoken journalist said that his memory of what happened to Derek remained “vivid” as his own health deteriorated.
