The 50-year-old ITV regular will make her soap opera acting debut in the long running show, but hasn’t revealed any details on her appearance when she announced the news on Twitter.

The Irish News report she will feature in a “big plot” with her scenes due to air in September. Kate isn’t the first GMTV face to feature in the soap with former sofa co-host Eamonn Holmes previously making a cameo during his time with Sky News.
