KATE Garraway has warned people breaking coronavirus guidelines "you don't want this in your life".
The Good Morning Britain star urged people to persevere with government rules to stop the spread of the virus as husband Derek remains seriously ill in hospital.
Kate grew tearful as she told viewers Derek's parents haven't been able to see him for six months.
Show host Susanna Reid asked Kate how she felt about the growing feeling of fatigue with the rules as people complain about wearing masks and having their social lives restricted.
Kate said: "I have huge sympathy with people who are fed up with it.
"It does make me tempted to show a pic of Derek in his current state and say 'you don't want this in your life. So stick to it.'"
She continued: "There’s huge confusion around it, but we kind of know wearing a mask, social distancing, we know the basics, and we have to do our best."
Fighting back tears, she concluded: "Derek's mum and dad haven't seen Derek for six months…
"Sorry, I didn't mean to depress anybody."
The Sun recently revealed Derek is now the country’s longest-fighting Covid-19 patient after marking six months in hospital.
He was was hospitalised on March 28 and has just spent his 186th day in and out of intensive care.
Since falling ill with symptoms at the end of March, Derek tested positive and was then admitted to intensive care where he was put on a ventilator.
He spent several weeks in ICU, before being woken from an induced coma in July.
Since then he has been in a state of “minimum consciousness” — and has yet to utter his first word.
Derek has had at least two health scares since then, including two big falls in blood pressure and a swelling in his legs which medics feared was a clot.
He has also lost a staggering eight stone since his ordeal began.
