The 'Good Morning Britain' presenter is set to discuss Derek Draper's struggle against the infectious illness in 'The Power of Hope', which is scheduled to be released in April.

Kate, 53 - whose husband has been in hospital since March - explained: "This virus has impacted every single one of us.

"By telling the story of Derek’s illness and how it has altered our lives, I hope to be able to reach out to others who are suffering.

"If writing about my experience of facing fear, coping day to day with an uncertain future and finding streng­th for the sake of my kids can in some way help another who is feeling lost or in despair, it will mean a lot."

Meanwhile, Kate recently revealed that homeschooling has been a "real struggle" amid the latest lockdown.

The TV star - who has Darcey, 14, and Billy, 11, with Derek - likened the situation to a form of "torture".

She said earlier this month: "We have made it to Friday, a collective sign of relief to anybody who is locked into the torture of home schooling."

Kate - who has been married to Derek since 2005 - admitted homeschooling was much easier during the summer months.

The presenter also voiced her admiration for teachers.

Reflecting on her experience of homeschooling, she said: "First time round, I was somewhat distracted at the time, and a lot of people felt quite nice, the sun was shining, we thought, 'Great, time with the children, let's see what those teachers are doing.'

"And very quickly realised how brilliant teachers are, and this time around it's a real struggle, isn't it?"
