"Derek is still with us but what a battle it is. So grateful too for our amazing #nhs doing so much for Derek everyday," she wrote. "[It's] wonderful to see all the support for them & our key workers every Thursday. We can't thank them enough can we? So brave.

"Sending love to everyone during this ghastly time, particularly all those struggling for whatever reason - none of this is easy. Thank you so much for your messages - they mean so much to me. Love and so much thanks from me and the whole family."

Kate's latest update on Derek comes a week after the Good Morning Britain host told fans that "there is hope" for her husband. "I am afraid that he remains in a deeply critical condition and is very ill, but he's still alive so there is hope," she said.

"It remains an extremely worrying time for us all and the last couple of weeks have been the hardest of my life."
