In April 2004 some of the Sugdens found out about Robert and Katie. Andy eventually found out too so in May 2004 Andy and Kate separated and the marriage was over after 3 short months!

For a few weeks Katie lived with Robert in a caravan but due to village and Sugden family hostility, Kate fled the village leaving 'Dear John' letters for both Andy and Robert.

In July she returned to sort out a financial settlement with Andy intending to leave all their lives and the village forever. However once back, Katie and Robert decided to give their relationship another go. However they chose not to live with each other.
