There’s no doubt Kate Silverton has been in­spir­ing women across the coun­try for the past few months, learn­ing to dance on Strictly Come Danc­ing with her gor­geous dance part­ner Al­jaž Ško­r­janec. A com­plete dance novice be­fore­hand, Kate’s en­thu­si­asm to learn and grow un­doubt­edly spurred her on in the com­pe­ti­tion.

And it’s Kate’s op­ti­mistic na­ture that helped her through the trau­matic time of be­ing told she and hus­band Mike Heron were never go­ing to be able to con­ceive – but they de­fied the odds and are now proud par­ents of two chil­dren.

Kate’s ca­reer be­gan when she trained at BBC Look North and be­came a pre­sen­ter on Tyne Tees Tele­vi­sion, be­fore be­com­ing part of the es­teemed BBC News team. It seems Kate has since ap­peared on every news show in the or­gan­i­sa­tion, from BBC News 24 to BBC News at One and, per­haps most fa­mously, BBC One Break­fast along­side pre­sen­ter Bill Turn­bull.

Now, liv­ing in Lon­don with hus­band Mike, a se­cu­rity con­sul­tant, daugh­ter Cle­mency, seven, and four-year-old son Wil­bur, she couldn’t be any hap­pier or more grate­ful, and here she tells us why she wants to use her ex­pe­ri­ence of try­ing to con­ceive to help other fam­i­lies. >>
