Kate Garraway holds back tears while confronting Matt Hancock over Derek's health battle

Earlier today, on Good Morning Britain, Kate Garraway grilled MP Matt Hancock on his decision to enter the I'm A Celebrity jungle as she opened up about how the families impacted by the coronavirus pandemic felt about his choice.

The MP joined Kate and show hosts Susanna Reid and Richard Madeley on Tuesday, just days after Matt's eye-watering I'm A Celebrity fee was finally revealed.

Kate responded to Hancock’s explanation for his wrongdoing, as she cares for husband Derek Draper, who was hospitalised for over a year after contracting the virus.

Derek has been really ill since he was admitted to hospital in March 2020, and his journey was documented in two award-winning ITV documentaries.

“It was all very muddled for us out here in the world.”

Derek's health still isn't great and in October, he returned to hospital after he contracted sepsis.

A pandemic is a disease epidemic that has spread across a large region, for instance multiple continents, or worldwide. A widespread endemic disease with a stable number of infected people is not a pandemic. Further, flu pandemics generally exclude recurrences of seasonal flu. Throughout history, there have been a number of pandemics of diseases such as smallpox and tuberculosis. One of the most devastating pandemics was the Black Death, which killed an estimated 75–200 million people in the 14th century.
