Kate Garraway shared a heart-shattering update about "how different" Derek Draper looks.
Fresh hope emerged after doctors revealed Derek had a "minimum state of consciousness" following weeks in intensive care.
Although he has fought off the coronavirus infection, Kate said her husband's full recovery and return home remains "very uncertain".
The Good Morning Britain presenter, 52, said Derek had "lost a huge amount of weight" during his health battle.
Kate revealed her husband "looked so different" on FaceTime after he was shaved because his beard had grown "so long".
She told Hello magazine : "Derek's lost a huge amount of weight and when the nurse shaved him because his beard had grown so long, he looked so different.
"They'd never seen him without stubble or a beard before. During their chats, they tell him what they've been doing and their sense of humour often shines through."
It comes as Kate said Derek making a full recovery and coming home is not "nearly in sight".
The breakfast TV star has shared her fears her husband's health battle remains "very uncertain".
In her latest Instagram, Kate gave her fans a heartbreaking update on Derek's condition.
She wrote: "Thank you so much to @hellomag for helping me to bring you some of my hopes and plans for the future. The future we are really hoping for, Derek recovering & coming home is not nearly in sight & very uncertain."
Kate will return to Good Morning Britain on Wednesday ahead of Piers Morgan's break for the summer from the TV show.
Piers stressed Derek wasn't "out of the woods" yet with his health battle and "remains in a very serious critical condition".
He said: "We're going to talk to Kate on Wednesday before we go off for the summer.
"She's going to have something more to say about this but it's certainly premature at the moment to think that Derek isn't in any way out of the woods, sadly, on this and he remains in a very serious critical condition."
