Crossroads returned to the ITV network in 2001 after a 13 year absence. The only characters to return from the original series were Jill Harvey, Doris Luke and Adam Chance. The series originally aired five times a week but this was cut back to four episodes from September, 2001 onwards. The motel had been replaced from the original series by a hotel and was now being run by the Russell family.
Age: 44 - Position: General Manager
Kate is the woman who has it all. An adoring husband, three gorgeous children and the top job at the Crossroads Hotel. And it hasn't come easily. Pregnant at 15 with son Jake, she's fought for everything she's got and isn't about to let it go without a struggle. She's conscious of how far she's come and proud of what she's achieved. But this doesn't stop her having a warm sense of humour and some interesting management techniques. Most of her staff see her as tough but fair, while others may have deeper feelings for the woman at the heart of the hotel.
LATER VERSION OF BIOGRAPHY:
Kate and Patrick always appeared to have a strong marriage, but after she mistakenly thought that Patrick was having an affair, she fell into the arms of her old flame Billy. They began an affair but it ended in tragedy when Patrick found out and had a heart attack. Since then, grieving Kate has been keeping Billy at arms length.
Kate and Billy's relationship ended when she found out that he was the father of chambermaid Mandy's baby (Episode 307)
