Owners Lawrence and Katie Kenwright stole the Grand Party Hotel show last night – but the mum-of-two’s age was the question on viewer’s minds.
The BBC One series gives us an insight into The Shankly Hotel in Liverpool, going behind the scenes of what is considered the city’s craziest stay.
In the most recent episode (Thursday October 8th), Katie and husband Lawrence threw a circus-themed party for their children. So how old is Katie? Find out more about the hotel owner below!
Meet Katie Kenwright
Mum-of-two Katie is the co-owner of Liverpool’s aparthotel Signature Living with her husband Lawrence, as well as The Shankly Hotel, where she lives with her family.
Katie graduated with a masters in human resources at Liverpool John Moores University in 2003. She grew up with her siblings and mum in Skelmersdale.
She helped to start the aparthotel in August 2008 with just one apartment. Since then, the Grand Party Hotel star helped to expand the Signature Living business to 13 apartments.
However it was reported in April that the two hotel companies were put into administration, just a few months before the Grand Party Hotel series was released. The couple have also spent the last three years setting up homeless shelters in Liverpool, as part of their scheme the Cotton Street Project.
