The 27-year-old actress – who is best known for playing Sinead Tinker in ‘Coronation Street’ – has admitted that landing a part on the TV drama series has proven to be a major turning point for her, as she was starting to fear for her long-term future in the industry.
Katie told the Daily Star newspaper: “As soon as I left ‘Corrie’, I didn’t expect to get any work. I thought I’d give it a year. And I didn’t expect the pandemic.
“So when I got the call from my agent about ‘The Syndicate’, I couldn’t believe it was actually happening. I felt so grateful I could work. I counted my blessings.”
Katie previously revealed she was open to the idea of appearing on ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!’.
The actress admitted she would jump at the chance to star on the ITV show, saying she’d be “more scared of the people than the bugs”.
Asked about the possibility of joining the show, Katie – who played Sinead on ‘Coronation Street’ between 2013 and 2020 – said: “I love camping, I’m a bit of a tomboy at heart.
“I don’t mind getting dirty, I don’t mind all that kind of thing, bugs don’t bother me.
“All my friends say you’d be brilliant at it, because they think I’d surprise people. It’s the people I couldn’t deal with. Living with people who are up their own bottom doesn’t sound that appealing! I couldn’t deal with the egos. I’d be more scared of the people than the bugs!”
