    • Kate: (her plans following "Big Brother") I'm going to go back to my job — I work at the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman — which is a fantastic organisation to work for.

    • Kate: (on who she liked the most in "Big Brother") Susannah. She's beautiful. She's someone who I'm definitely going to catch up with on the outside. She and I live in the same suburb in Melbourne so hopefully we can be good friends. She actually gets her coffee from the same café I get mine in the city, so I've seen her before. I recognised her straight away when she walked in. It was totally bizarre. Same suburb and same café.

    • Kate: (on who she liked the least in "Big Brother") The least is difficult. I think in the end it was probably Andrew who I liked the least and that wouldn't have come across at all cause I never got to the stage where I expressed that opinion. He said to me that he's not trying to offer any advice on how to live but in fact that's what he's always doing. He's always giving his opinion on how the house should behave and it's not his place. I just don't like his attitude. I don't like the way his entire personality changed once the couple was revealed.

    • Kate: (asked to sum up her "Big Brother" experience) The experience was a wild ride and it's still going. It was at times traumatic and at times just completely horrible but it allowed me to tell a story that needed to be told. I'm glad that I've been strong enough to tell the story and I'm feeling proud of myself that I was actually able to come out and tell the story. At this stage there are a lot of positives to come out of the experience.

    • Kate: (looking back on her "Big Brother" experience) I wish I could change the entire first week because it was really awful and I acted in such a terrible way which was a really awful experience while I was living it and it was even more awful to watch it. It's terrible watching yourself looking so ugly and looking so angry and upset. I didn't like what I saw one bit and so I'd try to change that. Realistically I would probably just go in there and be sweet and nice and stay out of everybody's way. I think that's the way you win this game.

    • Following the revalation Kate had lost her baby 18 months prior to Big Brother, the network revealed they had been aware of the situation when they initiated the task requiring Housemates to care for electronic baby dolls. This caused outrage amongst viewers and organisations such as the Stillbirth Foundation.

    • Big Brother was forced to cancel a task shortly after it begun, when it became clear it was upsetting to Kate. The task, which saw Housemates look after electronic babies, was cancelled when it was revealed Kate had given birth 18 months earlier, only for her baby to die a few short hours later.

    • After one week in the 2007 Big Brother house, Kate complained in the diary room to Big Brother that her fellow housemates were "idiots" and that no-one stimulated her intellectually.
