The 52-year-old was put into an induced coma after developing severe symptoms.

Mother of two Kate, 53, said: “We’re keeping positive and doing everything to bring him round.

“The children and I communicate with him every day on FaceTime, while a nurse holds his iPad. I really believe he can hear. When medical staff say ‘Good morning, Derek,’ he sometimes opens his eyes.”

Good Morning Britain star Kate said Derek had been feeling unwell with a painful shoulder before he was taken ill. Then on March 29, she came home and he told her: “I’m struggling to breathe.”

He was then taken to hospital and put into an induced coma on April 5.
