Kate Connor is the daughter of Johnny, sister of Aidan and half-sister of Carla Connor. In September 2015, Aidan stole £100,000 from Kate and Johnny. The pair managed to track Aidan down in Weatherfield. Johnny and Kate learned that Aidan had spent the money on a 4.734% share of Underworld. Kate met her cousin Michelle, and showed off her engagement ring.

A former holiday rep, the then 25-year-old started working at the factory in the packing department less than a fortnight later - under the watchful eye of Kirk Sutherland. Convinced that Kate fancied Kirk, his wife Beth called her a hussy, warning her to keep her hands to herself, however Kate continued to wind Beth up and the pair began to brawl when Beth witnessed Kate squeezing Kirk's biceps and the women had to be separated by Carla. With Kate ordered to apologise, she bought Kirk and Beth a drink in the Rovers - explaining that she was only having a laugh with Kirk and that she was soon to marry her girlfriend Caz Hammond.

Kate later kissed Sophie Webster who she befriended during Caz's absence, but was caught out when Caz made a surprise return. Kate put the blame on Sophie. Kate broke up her engagement with Caz and later dated Imogen Pascoe for a few weeks.

During her relationship with Imogen, her friend Rana Nazir, developed strong feelings for her to which she confessed after Kate and Imogen broke up.
