Biography:
Katie is the youngest in her family. She was left lonely and upset after her mother walked out on her and her father. Katie was noticed by Andy Sugden after they spent time doing detention together, and they soon fell for one another. Although Robert tried to split them up, they stayed together.

In September 2001 Katie was one of the seven teenagers involved in the hit and run. She was against covering up the accident, but in the end she had no choice.
Her father, Brian is very strict with his daughter and banned her from seeing Andy after the truth came out about the hit and run.

In early 2002 Katie and Brian moved to the village after his business went bankrupt and after his marriage to Caroline broke down. Katie and Andy still continued to see each other and, after several disagreements over the relationship with their parents, the young couple tried to get pregnant.

In early June it was revealed to the village that Katie was pregnant. She and Andy moved into the Woolpack, but Andy had second doubts and tried to convince Katie to have an abortion. She was deeply upset and ended the relationship. After the relationship ended, Katie left the village with her mother, Caroline.

But, after a desperate Andy turned up looking for Katie and after a long talk Katie and Andy got back together. After Katie’s father Brian announced he was leaving the village to go and live in Newcastle, Katie had to decide whether to stay in Emmerdale with Andy or to go to Newcastle with Brian. She choose to stay with Andy.
