KATE Garraway said she's closer than ever to husband Derek Draper but they're "learning a new way as man and wife".
The Good Morning Britain host, 55, opened up about the challenges of becoming a carer to Derek, 54.
But despite these difficulties, Kate insisted that she's found a new way to be in love with Derek and to form a new level of closeness.
“When you nearly lose someone, it certainly brings everything into sharp focus," Kate told Good Housekeeping.

"It’s the same for the children – they’re having to relearn the experience of being with their dad.
