Kate Garraway has been playing Elton’s music for her ailing husband.


Derek Draper was first admitted to hospital in March, and is continuing to recover from the coronavirus. 
Kate said that Elton has been ”personally kind” to her during Derek’s battle, asking how he could help.
The 53-year-old spoke about her connection to Elton’s songs in the December issue of Woman & Home, where she appeared with her fellow female Smooth FM presenters to discuss their Christmas plans and favourite festive tracks.
She said Smooth FM plays a lot of Elton John and that Step Into Christmas is one of her favourites. And it feels particularly special this year because the songwriter has been so supportive.
