Episode chronology

"Katie" is the fourth episode of Series 4 and the 33rd episode overall.

This episode primarily focuses on Katie Fitch and her dealing with the fact that she is unable to have children (due to going through premature menopause) along with the slowly fracturing relationship with her family, including her twin sister Emily Fitch.


Katie has a job as a wedding planner. Their client is Brandy, a stereotypical WAG. Katie visits the doctor, thinking she is pregnant, only to discover she is experiencing a premature menopause and is infertile. She then dumps her boyfriend, telling him to leave her alone. Her family is bankrupt after her father Rob’s ill-spending. Katie goes to Brandy’s hen party, but gets into a fight, is barred, and gets her and her mother sacked. She starts to build a new kind of friendship with Effy, tells her she doesn't smoke but does anyway, since Effy provides some sort of confidant.The Fitch’s house is repossessed and they are forced to move in with Naomi and Emily, whose relationship is strained, even though Emily, remembering Jenna's rudeness to her, would like nothing to do with them. At a BBQ party, Emily gets drunk and high and makes out with another girl, leading Naomi to admit to the group she slept with Sophia and sold her drugs. Katie has a bath and Thomas accidentally locks them inside. They start to kiss, about to have sex, but Katie breaks down, telling Thomas about her condition. They agree to be friends. Katie consoles Emily and the Fitches move back into their house, the family beginning to re-unite.
