While he has since left hospital, and is back with Kate and their two children in their adaptive home, his body is now battling with the after-effects of the virus.

Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway visited a church as part of BBC Two’s Walking With series, with viewers watching her wiping away tears as she took a moment to reflect amongst the pews.

“I haven’t been to Church since Derek got sick," Kate said. "We used to go regularly. Derek is a faithful Church goer, but we haven’t been inside one since.

"It does feel like there’s an incredible sense of peace, and it makes me feel quite emotional actually.”

Wiping away tears, Kate took a few moments sitting in silence, before explaining she was praying for her husband.

“I think there’s something very powerful in prayer, whatever form it takes for you. For me, a classic prayer – I believe to God – is a very special thing,” she said.

“You can probably guess what I’m praying for…but [praying to God] is a very special thing.”

The episode saw Kate, 54, stroll through the Cotswolds, accompanied by a 360 degree camera to record the scenic views.

After her National Television Award-winning documentary, Finding Derek, Kate has announced she will be doing follow-up episode.

Titled Caring For Derek, the synopsis reads: “We follow Kate as she navigates the challenges of the social care system, negotiates the potential traps and unpicks the complexities that seem to be inherent in the system.

“At a time when the debate about social care is at its loudest, this film goes beyond the rhetoric to explore the reality of living within and relying on the social care system today.”
