English comedian, actress and writer.

She has won numerous awards for her work on the sketch comedy series The Catherine Tate Show as well as being nominated for an International Emmy Award and seven BAFTA Awards. Following the success of The Catherine Tate Show, Tate played Donna Noble in the 2006 Christmas special of Doctor Who and later reprised her role, becoming the Doctor's companion for the fourth series in 2008. In 2011, she began a recurring role as Nellie Bertram in the US version of The Office and was a series regular until the series ended.

Tate's former partner is stage manager Twig Clark. They have a daughter, Erin (born at London's Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in January 2003), delivered following an emergency caesarean section. Tate and Clark split before summer 2011.

Tate suffered from post-natal depression, from which she only recovered after the filming of the second series of The Catherine Tate Show. She also suffers from occasional panic attacks.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Pick of the week; Television," by Sally Kinnes, Sunday Times, 17 July 2005, p. 51: "Motivated enough to write her own material rather than sit around waiting for the phone to ring, she says she's not ambitious, she just has 'Gemini rising'. Tate, it turns out, has a passion for astrology -'I love a bit of Jonathan Cainer' -and would have taken it up, only her school's career adviser could not find a course." NB. Gemini Rising would mean she was born between about 5:45 and 7:30AM.
