One of the most recognizable characters from Corrie is still the Tracy Barlow star.

Among the most well-known characters on Coronation Street is Kate Ford.

Since 2002, the 47-year-old has played Weatherfield’s beloved Tracy Barlow. Dawn Acton played Tracy until 2002, when Kate took over and turned Tracy into one of the most infamous villains in Cobbles history.

The character is still a major player in the soap opera, and she recently got caught up in a romantic triangle. Tracy is wed to Steve McDonald, but she is annoyed at his recent lack of effort on the show.

Tommy Orpington, a retired football player, has returned to the Cobbles at this same time. Tommy has begun an affair with her, taking advantage of her romantic problems. Kate is close with her co-stars, and at the beginning of last month, she wrote a heartfelt note to Abi Webster.

Instagram is where Kate posts updates about her life. Yesterday, she braved the bitter cold winter weather to post a chilly update. In order to combat the cold snap, Kate wrapped up and shared a photo from her outdoor stroll.

Following the update, Kate received a barrage of compliments from her co-stars. “Gorgeous!” exclaimed Georgie Taylor, who plays Toyah Habeeb. The actress who plays Abi Webster, Sally Carman, continued, “Beauty.” Kate answered, ‘I love you. I hope to see you soon, xxx. Miss you.”

Compared to her on-screen counterpart, Kate leads a far less turbulent life when she is not around the Cobbles. The soap opera star has previously disclosed that she resides in South London with producer Jon Connerty’s son, Otis.

Since then, the two have split up, and Kate now lives on a street with some famous neighbors. “I spent [Christmas] with Kate Thornton at her house last year, and she made the most ridiculous amount of food I’ve ever seen in my life,” the actress stated in 2015.

“Our boys are very close friends and we live on the same street together in London. We frequently enter and exit each other’s homes because we are so close.”

Instagram is where Kate shares glimpses into her life. She recently announced the arrival of a new family member. Kate posted a picture of her cute pet cat on social media with the message, “#SirWalter, our new family member, we are in love.”

But Kate has also been candid about some of her difficulties on social media, disclosing that she has endometriosis. In 2022, she posted on Instagram that she was experiencing pain while filming Corrie.

“I was filming #itvcorrie a few weeks ago when I was having trouble with my endrometriosis,” she stated.

“Luckily got lots of support x just sending a hug out to all those struggling with similar [heart emoji].”In the severe stage of the disease, known as grade four endometriosis, tissue resembling the lining of the womb begins to proliferate in other organs, including the ovaries and fallopian tubes, as Kate has.

“As someone with grade four endometriosis, I realise how much I rely on my massage therapy to help with this,” Kate tweeted in June 2020, during the first lockdown. I haven’t been able to see my therapist in three months because of Covid. I’ll never take this therapy for granted again because my body hurts xx.”

Unexpectedly, Kate’s first taste of fame was in a Beatles music video, where she starred in the December 1995 release of Free As A Bird. John Lennon wrote the song’s original lyrics and recorded a home demo of it in 1977.

Kate appears in a street scene from the 1960s, marking the beginning of her successful TV career. Although Kate’s most well-known role is that of Tracy, she has also made appearances in television series like Missing and Blue Murder.

Kate has expressed in the past how much she loves her role on Coronation Street and that she has no plans to leave the show.

“Being at Corrie now is beneficial for me; I have good work and good scripts, and I don’t want to lose that,” she remarked. Making bolder decisions is simpler when you don’t have small children, but I’m not saying that this is an easy option—it takes a lot of work, and I truly enjoy it.
