The success of Last of the Summer Wine meant that Kathy had to be written out of The Street while the first series was being filmed, and has since gone on to star in another 17 series and various Christmas Specials. She has also appeared in many TV shows including Freddie Starr and The Lenny Henry Christmas Show.

In films she has appeared in A Kind of Loving, The Dresser, The Family Way, Camille and Little Dorrit.
