Katie’s role in the panto was her first since leaving the ITV soap.
Katie played Sinead Osbourne, also known as Sinead Tinker, from 2013 until 2019.
Her character died last year as her cervical cancer had spread and unfortunately treatment was unable to help.
Sinead was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2018 whilst pregnant with her son Bertie, but she refused treatment as she didn’t want to harm her baby.
Although earlier in 2019 she was told her tumour shrunk and showed no signs of spreading, just months later she discovered a lump on her neck and it was later confirmed the cancer had spread.
After her death Daniel struggled to cope without his wife, but eventually Bethany Platt made him see he needed to be there for his son.
