Garraway’s representative confirmed the news on Friday afternoon, stating that Draper, 52, was admitted to hospital on Monday.
The spokesman said: "Kate's husband, Derek Draper, has been taken to hospital and is being treated in intensive care with a confirmed case of COVID-19.”
The couple married in 2005 and have two children together.
The Good Morning Britain host, also 52, has also suffered “mild” coronavirus symptoms and is in “strict isolation” with the couple’s children, the rep added.
She has not been tested for coronavirus.
Following the public confirmation of the news, Garraway’s GMB co-host Piers Morgan tweeted a supportive message.
“Now it’s been made public, I can say this horrendous situation has brought the Coronavirus crisis sharply into the hearts of all of us @GMB,” he wrote. “My love & prayers to Kate & Derek.”
