She presents BBC Radio 2’s weekly show, Good Morning Sunday, with Jason Mohammed, is a frequent guest contributor on The Chris Evans’ Breakfast Show and a regular presenter on Songs of Praise.

Originally from Sheffield, Kate only started going to church because she fancied the local vicar’s son. They are now married, and she became ordained to join the church. While officiating a wedding, Kate took part in a dancing wedding flash mob. The video went viral with more than seven million hits on YouTube, and she was approached by Channel 4’s Gogglebox to join the show. She began building up an impressive resume of broadcast projects. Kate has presented BBC Radio 2’s The Sunday Hour, fronted Alone With the In-Laws and In The Footsteps of Judas, a Easter documentary for BBC 1, and journeyed to Camino de Santiago for BBC 2’s The Pilgrimage.
