Kate Garraway has shared a sweet video with her son Billy as they mucked about at home having a playfight.

The clip shared on Instagram showed a moment of respite for Kate and her 11-year-old son as her husband Derek Draper fights coronavirus in hospital.

‘I’m supposed to be online schooling, but I’m watching TV okay,’ Billy cheekily says to camera at the start of the video.

Kate, who appears in a new coronavirus campaign urging people to stay home, can then be heard asking her son if he is ‘actually doing any work’.

The Good Morning Britain presenter, 53, walks in and is surprised to find Billy stood on the sofa.

‘You’re not!’ Kate says before jokingly throwing a couple of toys.

Billy responds by holding up a red lightsabre and chasing her from the room out of shot, with Kate laughing and pretending to scream.

The TV presenter said in the video caption: ‘Where have you got to with home schooling in your house ? This is where we are!

‘Think it was me that learnt a lesson here – don’t mess with an 11 yr old with a light sabre!!!’

Derek, 53, has been in hospital since March after testing positive for coronavirus. He is now free of Covid-19 but the virus has wreaked havoc on his body, leaving holes in his heart and lungs. The former political lobbyist has emerged from his deep coma but is in a minimal state of consciousness.

New pandemic guidelines in the UK have meant Kate has been unable to visit him since before Christmas.

‘He’s back into a situation [of] looking at strangers in masks,’ she said on the ITV programme.

‘That’s the situation for everybody at the moment who’s got someone in hospital, it’s not unique to him. It’s tough, it’s also the same for people in care homes.

‘When you’re someone like him that is dealing with a consciousness problem and trying to emerge, I can’t help but feel like it’s not very helpful.’

Kate and Derek, who have been married since 2005, are also parents to 14-year-old daughter Darcey.
