Kate, 54, said Piers’ tough love worked, helping keep her going as stricken Derek Draper struggled on.

She said: “When Piers rang he did what the Piers I’ve known for 20 years always did, and went into Churchillian rallying mode.

“‘Right, Kate, get a grip. You’re a brilliant journalist. Do what you do best . . .  get on this. Get to the bottom of the situation.

“He was like a rugby team captain, preparing me for the pitch, quoting every inspirational figure he could from Churchill to Nelson Mandela.”

In her new book, The Power of Hope, Kate added: “It worked, spurring me on.”


Derek, 53, was put in a coma after catching Covid in March last year.

He went home only this April to Kate and their children Darcey, 15, and Bill, 11.

Kate, meanwhile, has revealed she has a new reason to thank the NHS.

Her mum, Marylyn, 78, was treated in hospital in Bodmin, Cornwall, after breaking a foot and twisting an ankle in a fall.
