Katherine Kelly, (born on 19 November 1979 in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, England, UK), is a British actress and is best known for currently playing Becky MacDonald, fromaly Granger in ITV soap opera Coronation Street.

She attended Wakefield Girls High School. She has strong links with The Lamproom Theatre in Barnsley, established in 1998 by her father John, and has regularly supported fund-raising events held there.

She trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA), London, with fellow students Meredith MacNeill and Laurence Fox, graduating in 2001. She worked at Chichester Festival Theatre in The Accrington Pals with actress Amy Robbins and at Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester in Othello with Andy Serkis and Lorraine Ashbourne. Since then she has worked extensively in TV, Film, Radio and Voice-over. She was a leading lady at the Royal Shakespeare Company 2004-2005, performing in both Stratford-Upon-Avon and the West End.

Her character in Coronation Street Becky is the obsessive former friend of Kelly Crabtree, whom she framed for theft. Becky returned in November 2006, when she met Hayley Cropper, her former workmate, who was teaching at an ex-offenders literacy class. After being reconciled with Hayley, she promised Hayley that she'd cleaned up her act, and was offered employment at Roy's Rolls Cafe on a trial period. However, it was not long before she soon began breaking objects, threatening customers and stealing money from the till. On 17 June 2008 the actress and character impressed bosses and signed her for a further 12 months where she as Becky went on to marry Steve MacDonald and move into the Rover Return. Actress Katherine Kelly stated in an interview with female first that she loves her character's 'trailer trash' appearance.
