Kate Louise Lawler (born May 7, 1980 in Beckenham, London) was the first female winner of Big Brother UK, winning the 2002 third British season of Big Brother. Since leaving Big Brother, she has worked as a television presenter and personality, a model and as a disc jockey.
In September 2002, Lawler became a DJ on Capital FM, a position she held until December 2003. She co-presented the Channel 4 breakfast TV show RI:SE from February 2003 until it was axed in December of that year. In 2005, she was one of the competitors in the ITV show Celebrity Wrestling, competing under the name The Brawler. She helped her team, the Warriors, win the team championship, but was eliminated in the semi-finals of the individual competition by fellow model Leilani Dowding.
Lawler has modelled clothing for Arsenal FC, of whom she is an avid supporter.
Lawler wrote a twice-weekly Big Brother 7 column for The Sun online for the duration of the series. Early in the series she spoke about her opinion and feelings towards BB7, branding the housemates "weird" and "fame-hungry".
Although she previously denied rumours that Lawler would participate, on August 14, 2006, Lawler entered Love Island 2 as a new arrival. Fellow contestant Sophie Anderton was not impressed as she had had it written into her contract for the show that Lawler, along with three other unnamed celebrities, would not also appear. Sophie had been rude to Kate at a party in London, to which Kate retaliated; this had caused Sophie's animosity towards Kate. However once on Love Island Sophie and Kate made up, and became friendly. Kate came third top female in the final of Love Island.
In 2006, Lawler appeared on Brainiac: Science Abuse, being electrocuted in an electric chair. She was a presenter on Playdate, a late-night dating programme on ITV2.
Lawler currently works as a club disc jockey in Europe and Japan, and is monthly resident at Manchester club Sankeys, and an occasional columnist for the UK-based celebrity gossip magazines OK! and New.
Lawler has also appeared in various men's magazines, including Loaded, Front, Nuts and Zoo. On July 24, 2006 Ann Summers announced that Lawler would be the company's new model in its lingerie advertisements.
