Heartbroken Kate is keen to keep busy and get back to work, her friends have said, after an ‘incredibly rough’ four years caring Derek who died last month.

Those close to the mother-of-two said she wants to get back to ‘what she knows and loves’, presenting for ITV, as she continues to mourn Derek.

‘Kate has had an incredibly rough past couple of months, and it has taken its toll mentally and physically,’ a friend said. ‘But she is a workhorse, and journalism, being on live TV, runs through her blood — it’s what she knows and loves.’

They added that she ‘needs to work to provide for their kids’ – Darcey, 17, and William, 14, and ‘bring stability back to their lives’.

The source told the Sun that it was the ‘perfect time’ for Kate to be ‘reunited with her GMB family’, who have been ‘hugely supportive’ throughout the family’s difficult time.

‘After caring for Derek, and her family, for almost four years, Kate needs to get back to some sort of normality. And she wants to throw herself back into work, 3.45am starts and all,’ the friend added.

In her first appearance back, Kate is expected to speak about her husband’s final days and his funeral – which was attended by politicians and celebrities alike.

Kate had last been seen on GMB on December 8.

She is provisionally scheduled to return full-time but ITV said she can take time off as and when needed.

It is understood that the broadcaster is also providing a duty-of-care package, thought to include counselling if needed.

Derek had flown to Mexico for specialist treatment for long Covid on December 8 but while there suffered a cardiac arrest and was forced to fly home.

On Friday, Sir Tony Blair, Sir Keir Starmer and Sir Elton John were amongst those who gathered the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Primrose Hill – where Kate married her partner in 2005 – to bid farewell to the New Labour giant.

Journalist Robert Peston, talent manager Jonathan Shalit, former political editor of GMTV and ex-Labour MP Gloria De Piero and former Sky News political editor Adam Boulton also headed into the church.

Kate’s past and present Good Morning Britain colleagues were also out in force to support her on a tragic day.

Ben Shephard and Susanna Reid were amongst the first to arrive followed by Piers Morgan and Charlotte Hawkins.

Fiona Phillips was seen in public with her ITV exec husband Martin Frizell for the first time since she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Derek’s daughter helped carry her father’s coffin into the building while Sir Elton played a ‘musical tribute’.

There was also a speech by friend Sir Tony Blair and the congregation sang Lord of the Dance and The Lord is My Shepherd.

His children left notes on wreaths on the coffin, which said: ‘I love you with all my heart’ and ‘I love you dad’.

Derek was one of the first to fall seriously ill with Covid-19 in March 2020. Kate announced he died on January 3 last month

Derek was amongst the first in the UK to fall seriously ill with Covid-19, being admitted into an intensive care unit as the country entered lockdown in March 2020.

He was one of the country’s longest-suffering Covid patients after being in hospital but never fully recovered after the virus left long-lasting damage to his organs and meant he needed round-the-clock care.

Derek had attended few public events over the last few years. But he suffered a heart attack before Christmas and never recovered.

Kate revealed Derek died as she held his hand ‘throughout the last long hours and when he passed’ on January 3 aged 56 after suffering long-lasting symptoms from coronavirus.
