´╗┐Katie used to be a tomboy and says "I'm not a girly girl into beauty regimes or pampering, I'll be happy chilling with the lads." She says she has never been a "socialite or the cool one" and is happier at home with a cup of tea!

Katie started dancing at two years old. At 16, she studied theatre performance at Bird College before working front of house at Wicked in the West End, followed by a cruise ship job, which she absolutely hated. Katie now teaches theatre workshops in Bird's and has formed her own company, Default Theatre.

Obsessed with baking, Katie is the perfect host and always has a cake ready for her friends to come over for a good gossip and debate. Her friends describe her as "level headed, intelligent, passionate and philosophical".

Contemplating the live shows, Katie says "I hope my strengths lie in the fact that I'm well-trained and a quick learner with a good eye for detail."
