Illness: Derek was released from the hospital in March this year after being first diagnosed in March 2020 and he is considered to be the longest surviving Covid-19 patient in the country
‘It was a magic show we were supposed to be heading to when he was rushed into hospital – and we felt strange that we were going out to one when he isn’t ready to – YET.
‘But it was so wonderful to see Darcey and Billy enthralled and mystified and enraptured – the magic of life returning.
‘And I know that’s what Derek wants too. It was unnerving to be with so many people after so long and the kids were wide eyed and more than a little disorientated to be in the centre of London with all the buzz but excited too.’ [sic]
She continued: ‘I couldn’t believe my eyes welled up at the spirit and celebration and pure joy of the performers getting the chance to entertain again – magic back in the west end and in our lives @wondervillelive runs @thepalacetheatre til the end of August – catch it if you can and if not hooe you can find some magic in the madness.

Derek was released from the hospital in March this year after being first diagnosed in March 2020.
The virus wreaked havoc throughout his entire body, resulting in kidney failure, liver and pancreatic damage.
On more than one occasion his heart stopped beating, he battled bacterial pneumonia and fought multiple infections which punctured holes in his lungs.
He is considered to be the longest surviving Covid-19 patient in the country. The former lobbyist continues to recover from the illness at their London home.
Kate also recently revealed that part of the property was flooded following torrential rain.
The TV host said the disruption had been a ‘total nightmare and nuisance’ as the lower areas of the home were left underwater.
Discussing the bad news on GMB, she explained to weather man Alex Beresford: ‘My weather week has been…I have lived the weather of the week, Alex.
‘Severe flooding in the storms on Monday night so woke up on Tuesday morning to find…we live on a hill – so you come in the door at one level and you go down the steps to the back garden – everything underneath completely flooded.’
‘Completely flooded. Total nuisance. It”s been a total nightmare.’
The mother-of-two revealed that she had been helped by her close family members throughout the crisis, including husband Derek’s father.
