KATE Garraway’s Covid-haunted husband nearly died in hospital from sepsis, The Sun can reveal.
He recently developed sepsis after his kidneys stopped working properly.
“Thanks to the extraordinary NHS teams & his own amazing life force & spirit Derek — please God — is back on the right side of it now.”
A pal confirmed Derek, 54, who fell ill three weeks ago, was out of intensive care and “battling on”.

Derek, who spent longer in hospital with Covid — 13 months — than any other Brit, has children Darcey, 16, and Billy, 13, with Kate.
The UK Sepsis Trust says a fifth of Covid patients get sepsis in the year following discharge from hospital and a fifth of those die.
