The audience was particularly moved when they saw Derek – who had been in a coma and passed out for months – uttered his first word, “pain”.

Commenting on his progress during the film, Kate said, “We have him back, we have him back, he’s back. We have waited a long time to speak to you.

“I’m so proud of you, you are just so brilliant. Every day we get closer to coming home and being with the kids. “

At one particularly moving moment, Kate shared how Derek had told her he didn’t want to continue.

But the future looks much better for the father of two, now he’s home, surrounded by loved ones – although doctors have warned that he has a long fight ahead of him.

While Derek is now coronavirus free, the disease has affected his heart, kidney and lungs.

Kate told it recently The mirror: “He has changed. Derek is very physically affected.

“His legs are like sticks, he no longer has any muscles. In relation to his movement, he is physically affected. “
