Kate Garraway smiled with joy as her husband Derek Draper returned home after a year in hospital.
The TV host was pictured outside her home in London noticeably happy that she was finally reunited with 53-year-old Derek.
He nearly died six times at the height of his fight with the virus.
But now after a hard battle, he was finally allowed to come home to his family at their newly adapted house.
Kate looked relaxed as she wore a striped jumped and a pair of jeans and smiled at paps with her face-mask resting on her chin.
The snaps, taken in the sunshine on Friday, mark the beginning of a hopeful new era as Kate and her children Darcey and Billy bask in having Derek home.
It was revealed on Thursday that Derek had finally been allowed by doctors to return home after first entering hospital in March 2020.

“I could see two little faces looking out the window,” Kate explained.
Darcey and Billy are then described to have run outside and broke down into tears, with Kate adding: “That’s when he knew he was home.”
Derek has a further recovery ahead of him, however, with Kate describing treatment being needed ahead.

She also added: “He can’t really move, we do need a lot of help.”
Upon news of Derek’s return home, a friend of the family had told The Sun: “Derek is a unique case. The medical experts are now looking at unique ways to give Derek every chance of making the best recovery, and agree that being surrounded by his wife Kate and their two children, is vital to reaching that goal.”
They added: “This past year has given Derek and Kate an absolutely unbreakable bond — she has been such a rock, and a total inspiration to everyone in Britain battling their own horror stories with the pernicious disease.”
