Adored by fans for her down to earth and open nature, Kate can present awards as a famous face or offer an insightful talk on her career, parenting and handling bereavement, issues close to her heart.
Rising to fame on ITV’s, Kate waltzed onto the scene in a Marbella special of the programme, becoming an instant hit with viewers for her style, charm and outgoing personality. Throughout her two years as a cast member Kate, who was known as Kate Wright at the time, showcased her lavish Essex lifestyle, giving audiences a behind the scenes look at her relationships, friendships and social life, a true favourite of the show. Between 2015 and 2017 Kate appeared in a total of sixty two episodes, before disembarking from the series to focus on her family.
