Catherine is South Manchester born and bred. She has a young son and, as one might expect, being the doting parent means she is regularly seen visiting the cinema, taking her child to feed the ducks in the park, playing on the swings and generally doing all she can to stop the little mite from eating worms.

Come the summer months, if Catherine can bag a crafty weekend without her little treasure then she’ll indulge in her love of music by attending a music festival. Reading, Latitude and the local Parklife festival have all been on her radar in recent years.

Catherine recently spent 59 minutes swimming in the Salford canal. We’re able to quote the exact time because this wasn’t a drunken episode, rather she was participating in the British Gas Swim. 59 minutes was the time it took her to swim one mile and raise a fantastic amount of money for Cantreat, a charity who improve the environment in cancer treatment clinics at NHS Hospitals in the North West of England.

Catherine has completed the Race For Life, which took place in June 2012. Clearly an individual who enjoys a challenge, she takes after the painter Pablo Picasso, who said: ‘I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it’.
