Kate announced the new documentary on her Instagram account.

She said: ‘Spring is such a wonderful time of year when life is blossoming and there’s a sense of fresh hope and new chapters. I am really praying it is for me and my family as well.

‘On Tuesday 22nd February, a new film on @itv #CaringforDerek will document our family’s challenges from the 1st moment Derek arrived home almost 1 year ago.

‘So many of you have been so kind to ask after him, and Derek and I hope the documentary will bring comfort to all of you who have found life has thrown you a curveball and you have had to scramble to adjust.’

What is the documentary about?

This time the film joins the Life Stories and Good Morning Britain presenter and her family from when Derek arrives home in April, and in the build-up to Christmas 2021 - a period of considerable upheaval and uncertainty.

Caring for Derek is honest, unflinching, and doesn’t sugar coat the reality of being a carer as we see Kate tell the camera ‘We have to make this real as this is the reality of life for people who are caring, and it’s not pretty’.

Above all, the documentary follows Kate as she embarks on a new chapter in her family life and marriage, attempting to find a new way of living and a new way of loving.

Is there a trailer?

A first-look trailer for Kate Garraway: Caring for Derek was released by ITV on February 11.
