Kate Garraway has confessed this Halloween is "tough" without her husband Derek Draper by her side.

The 53 year old, who was recently pictured with Prince William and Kate Middleton after a "secret" meeting, took to her Instagram feed to share a video of her spooky house before opening up on celebrating the day without her other half.

The clip showed a mirror with a skeleton figure appearing inside it, black cobwebs scattered everywhere alongside cobwebs with spiders crawling all over it.

The star decked out her house with pumpkins, electronic walking witch figures, glass stickers and even a projection that showed a devil with flames coming out of it's mouth.

It comes as the blonde beauty recently revealed her 53 year old husband Derek has said his first word since he was admitted to hospital with the coronavirus earlier this year. She also said he has had his tracheotomy tube removed and is able to breathe without a ventilator.

Speaking to The Sun, she explained that Derek said "pain" twice as doctors moved his body to prevent him from seizing up.

She said: "It’s a case of trying to balance belief, hope, optimism with reality. But we have had a breakthrough which was both amazing yet ­heartbreaking.

“It happened when the nurses were moving Derek, as part of his treatment, to trigger the sensation of gravity because he's been horizontal for so long.

“Right from the beginning, when Derek couldn’t even open his eyes, the doctors and nurses have always talked to him to be respectful, and to try to trigger a response.

“As they were shifting him, they asked if he could feel anything – not expecting a response as he hadn’t previously. But suddenly he mouthed in a whisper, ‘Pain’."

The TV star, who recently said Derek has "worrying downs" in hospital, went on to say that it's a major breakthrough after everything her husband has been through since the start of his battle with the deadly coronavirus.

“Obviously it’s so heart-wrenching that his first word was ‘pain’, but it is a huge breakthrough because it means he has been able to connect the feeling in his body to his brain and mouth," she said.

“They called me straight after and I burst into tears. The staff told me later that they were so emotional as well. It breaks my heart that there may have been times that he’s been in terrible pain and wasn’t able to communicate it.

“But he’s said it twice now and I was there for the second one, watching him over FaceTime. That was so hard, but also amazing because I know the possible significance.

“Of course there’s a big difference between being able to say the word ‘pain’, and Derek being the Derek I know and love."

Kate added: "But I feel in his eyes that he’s there, and that we just have to hold on in this grim battle.”
