‘I love running, and I did five half-marathons in 2020 – I ran one this morning too! I have the Hamilton soundtrack and Jason Derulo on my running playlist.’

Kate, who worked at the box office in Derby Theatre before landing her role on Coronation Street, told how she has been keeping fit with her boyfriend Paul Walker in lockdown.

She said: ‘I’ve been doing some boxing with my boyfriend during lockdown as well, but I’m not a good student, and he’s a pro. I always think I know better!’  

Kate also told how Paul has helped her with her scenes for Coronation Street and often reads lines with her, where he usually plays Michael (Ryan Russell).

The actress spoke about her weight loss journey in a social media post where she shared before and after photos taken five years apart.

She wrote: ‘Same girl. Same smile. Same jeans. Very different priorities. 5 years ago today I decided to make a change. 

‘It hasn’t been all sunshine and lollipops, but nothing feels as good as working hard and achieving feels.

‘These last couple of weeks in isolation, I’ve hardly been particularly ‘creative’ (I mean that’s entirely subjective anyway…) but I’ve progressed, made PB’s and hit targets in other aspects of my life that 5 years-ago-me would never have thought possible, so for that, I’m feeling not too shabby.’

Kate joined the soap as Michael Bailey’s ex in 2019 and she has also appeared in Doctors and Survive The Night. 

Speaking to Derbyshire Live about joining the series, she said: I’ve been a huge fan of Coronation Street since a child, my mum is obsessed – it’s wonderful to be part of it.

‘Grace is quite difficult because people don’t know how to react to her because she’s been guarded and caged throughout [her life].’
