Kat wasted very little time establishing herself as a drama queen by shocking everyone with the revelation that her youngest sister, Zoe was in fact her daughter. Then she stole her dishy doctor boyfriend for good measure.
Unwanted pregnancies, suicide attempts, miscarriages - Kat has been through it all. But it was her relationship with Alfie that changed everything. However, the baby swap scandal and those traumatic months where Kat thought that baby Tommy was dead had a huge impact on her and Alfie's relationship.
While their marriage seemed to recover, it didn't take long for Kat's eye to wander. She had an affair with a mystery man. At first, Alfie forgave her. But when he found out it was Derek Branning? It was game over for Kat and Alfie.
Now Derek is dead and Alfie wants a divorce, Kat is left staring woefully at him and his new landlady, Roxy Mitchell, as they play happy families. Just outside the doors of The Vic, Kat has found her calling in life by joining forces with Bianca to run a market stall. We knew that loud voice was meant for something! But in her down time from work, it didn't taken her long to find herself back in the arms of Michael Moon... but now Michael has bigger things to worry about with Janine's return to The Square, and Kat has decided the best way she can help is by being his friend... but does Micahel Moon do friendship?
