Piers Morgan shares sweet message to Kate Garraway as he praises her ‘courage’

Piers Morgan shared a sweet message to his former Good Morning Britain presenter Kate Garraway as he praised her "courage and never-give-up spirit".

The journalist told the 54-year-old to "keep battling" as she shared her family life in a new TV documentary, Caring For Derek which aired on Tuesday (February 22) evening.

The ITV programme is a follow-on from her award-winning documentary Finding Derek last year, which saw her husband Derek return home from his year-long hospital stint after battling Covid.

The virus left his organs damaged and needing around-the-clock care after being put into a medically induced coma.

He has now been reunited with his children Darcey and William at home.

Piers, 56, described the programme as "heart-rending television" as many fans admitted they were "already sobbing" just minutes into the show.

Piers retweeted Kate's post which explained how "proud" she was of the ITV documentary.

She wrote alongside a photo of the family of four at home: "So proud of the work the doc team & @itv have done to help Derek & I shine a light on the challenges of #LongCovid & caring for a loved one.

"I hope you find it helpful & do let me know what you think after watching tonight 9 pm & share your stories. #hope #TogetherWeCan."

Kate, who took over Piers' long-running ITV show Life Stories last year, was praised by her former outspoken co-host.

Piers said on Twitter: "This was such unbelievably heart-rending television.

"Keep battling, Kate – you and your remarkable family are a towering testament to the power of stoicism, courage & never-give-up spirit in the face of appalling adversity. Love you all."

Fans agreed with the star and admitted they were "bawling my eyes out" just minutes into the ITV show.

One said: "Two mins in and I’m crying already!"

Another added: "Just quietly sobbing at watching Derek come home."

A third wrote: "Already bawling my eyes out at @kategarraway #CaringForDerek their little boy keeps hugging him, broke me – what a lovely family."
