Derek, 53, was admitted to hospital with the virus in March last year and despite now being free of Covid-19, he continues he recovery in hospital.

After the interview with Nadhim, who expressed his sorrow over the recent loss of his own uncle due to COVID, Piers said: "From him you can see he was not sure whether to tell us that. I'm sure [politicians] don't want to be seen to be using it in some way but actually personalising it is important.

"His own uncle just died of COVID before he had a chance to be protected and that's the race we're in with this virus to get vaccinated before more and more people sadly lose their lives to this disease," he said. "It's a horrible killer disease."

Co-host Susanna Reid then added: "And we're so close, aren't we. To getting that elderly vulnerable group all jabbed so let's get it done." Piers continued: "Very sorry to him Nadhim and his family, it's horrible. I know people who have lost parents, who've lost uncles, family members and it’s devastating.

Of Kate's situation, Piers concluded: "We know from our colleague Kate Garraway whose husband Derek is still in a coma from COVID. He may never come out of that coma she’s been told this and it's heartbreaking."

Meanwhile, during an appearance on GMB last week, Kate revealed that Derek's recovery is "incredibly uncertain." She said: "They said the chances of Derek's survival was next to nothing and that he'd probably die, but I thought some people are surviving so why not Derek."
