Peter Andre, 47, said he has reached out to Kate Garraway, 53, during her husband’s health ordeal, in which her 52-year-old spouse remains in hospital. He was first admitted to hospital back in March after contracting coronavirus, which has since led to further health complications.

I just pray that everything is going to be OK, I really do.

The father-of-four praised Kate for her bravery as he revealed he has reached out to the Good Morning Britain host during her troubled time.

“I’ve known Kate for years, she and I had good old chats before she went into the jungle [I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!] because she wanted to know to what to expect,” he began.

“We’ve actually been in private contact me and her for a while, my thoughts are with her so much and her family.

He added: “She’s such a nice person… the bit that got me with her was the day when she turned around and said, ‘My kids have effectively lost their father’, that killed me when she said that, because of course I can understand that feeling as a dad.

“I just pray that everything is going to be OK, I really do.

“It just highlights that not everyone is safe and some people who thought there was no virus, there are all sorts of things going on. It’s very real.”

Kate’s long-term spouse, who she married in 2005, remains in intensive care after he was put into an induced coma.

The couple share two children together; Darcey 14, and Billy, 11. 

Last month, the presenter revealed the political advisor had opened his eyes, but said the likelihood of him returning home and recovering remained uncertain.

Peter’s wife Emily, a doctor, who he married in 2015, shared her thoughts about Derek’s condition in her column with OK! Magazine recently.

She said: “Over these last few months, I’ve thought about Kate a lot and my heart really goes out to her.

“Unless you’ve been intensive care or you’ve seen patients in that situation, it’s very hard to explain to people what it’s actually like.”

Peter’s wife went on to say: “It’s not surprising that it could take Derek a long time to recover.

“It’s easy to underestimate the impact of being in intensive care, even for a young and healthy person.”

“It’s a massive ordeal for your body to go through and over time, patients lose a lot of muscle and bulk and become very weak.”

Emily went on to say doctors “still don’t fully understand” why some coronavirus patients get more ill than others.

Elsewhere, Peter has been working on his latest campaign with P&O Ferries.

The singer said he and his children had an “unreal” experience on the ferry to France, in what was their first trip since lockdown measures eased.

“It was so unreal, I had never experienced it before,” Peter said as he recommended the trip to families, who may be apprehensive about travelling abroad during the pandemic. 

“Everything is very neatly organised, there’s sanitiser and a lot of space for everybody and you just feel [like] you can chill, you don’t feel the claustrophobia feeling.

“What a perfect first time to travel abroad since all this happened.

“They [his children] got up and got into the car and within a few hours they are on a beach in France!”
