Derek Draper’s miraculous U-turn as Ben Shephard says he wasn’t due home for eight months

Derek, 53, has spent the past 12 months in hospital after contracting coronavirus last March and Kate, 53, has been left in turmoil over his condition. Despite the odds, he has pulled through and in an incredible development, he is now home and getting used to having his family around him 24/7. There are still huge steps to take in his recovery from the illness as the home has been adapted to meet his needs. However, appearing on Friday’s edition of This Morning, family friend Ben, 46, explained this shouldn’t have happened so quickly.

The Good Morning Britain star spoke with Eamonn Holmes, 61, and Ruth Langsford, 61, about interviewing Kate earlier in the day.

Ben referenced the Finding Derek documentary which aired last month and explained how medical professionals told the mother-of-two her husband would be in hospital for the foreseeable future.

However, when filming finished, the nation was put into a third lockdown and Derek’s recovery began to regress.

Therefore, it was decided the father-of-two should be allowed home to spend time with his family and build up more communication with them.

Ben said: “He shouldn’t have left the hospital until the end of 2021 but they needed to stimulate him more so suddenly, he’s back.”
