Kate Garraway asks Myles Stephenson to be ‘big brother’ to her kids
Written by Skywave Radio News on July 3, 2020
Kate Garraway has asked I’m A Celebrity co-star Myles Stephenson to be a “big brother” figure to her two children as her husband Derek Draper remains in a coma.
Former Labour adviser Derek, from Chorley, contacted coronavirus in March and was later placed in intensive care at hospital and put into an induced coma.
He has remained in critical condition after his body has fought off the virus, the damage done has been considerable.
He has a hole in his heart, needs kidney dialysis and is now diabetics following complications involving his pancreas.
Kate, 53, has now turned to RakSu singer Myles for emotional support as Derek remains in intensive care.
Myles said he is there for the Good Morning Britain presenter and her two children Darcey, 14, and William, 10, to pray for a miracle.
Speaking to Sun Online, Myles said: “It breaks my heart. I have such a close relationship with them all – including Derek.
“Kate knows I am there for her at the drop of a dime – for her and the kids – anything she needs.
“She has taken me up on the offer a few times, but I don’t really want to say what she’s asked of.
“It’s just about looking out for the kids and being a big brother to them.
“It’s been very hard. All we can do is pray for Derek and pray for Kate and the kids as well.”
Kate recently vowed to “never give up” on Derek, even when “the end isn’t even nearly in sight.”
She’s also been told by doctors that Derek could be in a coma for a year.
Last month, Kate broke down in tears as she revealed Derek thanked her for ‘saving his life’ before he slipped into a coma.
