Kate Garraway takes a new hit with husband Derek Draper after revealing they faced another “tough dilemma”.

KATE Garraway and husband Derek Draper have taken a new hit when the business they run together goes bust.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, who recently revealed she’s worried she’ll eventually run out of money to pay for Derek’s round-the-clock care, faced another “tough dilemma”.

Kate Garraway will reportedly announce that Derek's Draper's company is to fold.

Kate, 54, was reportedly determined to save Derek’s psychotherapy company Astra Aspera Limited after his body was ravaged by Covid.

But the Life Stories presenter has lost her battle and will announce this week that the “company is set to collapse”, according to MailOnline.

A friend told the publication: “Astra Aspera was Derek’s company first and foremost, he was the director. Kate was made director last February so she could try to keep it going.

“Kate did her best to do that while Derek was incredibly ill. However, he has not been able to work, his earnings are completely suspended and it is unlikely that he will return in the near future.

“Kate has other jobs at GMB and Smooth Radio but with their massively increased costs it hasn’t been able to keep the business going so it has to close.”

It comes after Kate recently opened up about money woes during an appearance on This Morning to discuss her recent documentary Caring for Derek.

Speaking to Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, Kate praised the full-time carers who help her with Derek’s needs.

Holly said: “What has really impressed me is the amount of care he needs. Like it’s 24/7, isn’t it?”

Kate replied: “Yes and because of his extreme health needs he has 24 hour care so someone has to be up at night and someone has to be up during the day and I can’t be up 24 hours so it’s fantastic to have it that.”

Phil then referenced Kate and Derek’s trip to Mexico to see a specialist, and she continued, “This came at a real low point when I was like, ‘Oh god, this isn’t sustainable.’

“The system, I mean, I don’t think we can have 24-hour care forever, you know, there’s a point where the money runs out!

“It’s a big moment, I thought, ‘this is not sustainable’ and if there isn’t the structure to help over the long term, what are we actually going to do? Because we cannot give him up.”

After his time in hospital – during which he was placed in an induced coma – Derek is still very ill after suffering from organ failure and blood clots in his lungs.

But Kate is yet to have an agreed diagnosis on exactly what Covid has done to Derek’s brain and body because experts still don’t fully understand the long-term effects of the virus.

He may never walk again because the tendons and muscles in his legs have cramped from being in an induced coma for so long.
