Katrina Leeder, the much loved former EasyJet employee from ITV1’s Airline programme, has been looking after the public on the Citroen stand at The Sunday Times Motor Show Live.
Katrina, who left EasyJet in 2001, has found that many visitors to the show still recognise her from her time on TV. Recent reruns of the series has lead to increased numbers of people stopping to say hello but according to Katrina some of them must be tuning in for the first time. She told us, `My wedding has just been shown again on repeat, someone asked me the other day what I planned to do for my first anniversary. I had to explain I’ve been married for six years!’
After leaving EasyJet Katrina spent a little time modelling but found the job unrewarding. She said, `I like working with the public and missed people when I was modelling’. Working at exhibitions like The Sunday Times Motor Show Live has given her the contact with people she really enjoys and kept her working life varied.
Katrina bravely battled with cancer while on Airline and was keen to let everyone know that she is now 100 per cent well. She said, `it’s what people tend to ask you first (whether you’re well). I don’t mind at all, it gives me a real boost to know people care’.Published 31 May 2004
