GOOD Morning Britain's Ranvir Singh revealed she couldn't watch Kate Garraway's Finding Derek documentary as she wouldn't be able to sleep.

The show's political editor discussed the emotional hour-long programme with Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid this morning and said she will tune in on ITV Hub.

She explained: "Last night I couldn't watch it. I won't be able to sleep afterwards. I'm going to watch it when it goes on the bub.

"When you know someone and you've been watching from the sidelines, it's really hard to watch, isn't it?"

A clip played of Derek crying in his hospital bed as he spoke to wife Kate via Facetime.

Ranvir continued: "Watching that reminds me of the last conversation I had with Derek, which was at the Christmas party after Kate came out of I'm A Celeb."

The single mum told how she'd spoken to Kate about parenting issues and her co-star recommended she mention it to psychotherapist Derek.

Ranvir called his advice "amazing" and added: "In his heart, just being a family man. The children are so resilient because he filled them up with so much love before this awful moment round the corner."

Kate's former co-star Piers Morgan did tune in, however. He sent love to his pal and called the documentary "heartbreaking".

On the National Day of Reflection, Piers joined thousands of people on Twitter who shared messages of support to Kate, 53, during the one-off film about her husband's brave coronavirus battle.

The 55-year-old sent a sweet message to Kate, reading: "Love you
@kategarraway."

He also included a quote from Nelson Mandela, which said: "It always seems impossible until it is done".

Derek is the longest surviving Covid-19 inpatient in the UK. Viewers saw how Kate vowed to "save" him as he admitted he wanted to die.



It comes as:

  • Kate revealed she has saved a year's worth of newspapers for Derek to catch up on
  • Their son Billy shared his hope of playing Lego with his dad again
  • Daughter Darcey revealed her fear of Derek dying
  • Ben Shephard paid tribute to his 'brilliant' friend as he shared fears of a 'crash'
  • Kate broke down in tears as Derek's first word out of his coma was 'pain'

In the harrowing moment, Derek was seen in tears as he cried: "There's no way out, there's no way out."

"I've got to the point where I just think, f*** it. F*** it."

Kate asked: "As in die?" and when Derek said yes, she replied: "No….no."

Derek grew more distressed and tearful and sobbed to his wife: "I don't know how to cope, I don't know how to cope."
