Katherine "Katie" Fitch is a fictional character in the television series Skins, played by Megan Prescott. She is introduced in the third series. Her twin sister Emily is played by Megan's real-life twin Kathryn Prescott.
Katie—along with identical twin Emily—was born in 1992 to Jenna Fitch, a beautician turned wedding planner and Rob Fitch, the gym owner of "Fitch Fitness". Being the older twin by a few minutes Katie is notably more aggressive, controlling, and extroverted in contrast to younger twin Emily's quieter nature. During their childhood she and Emily created a secret language that only they can understand called "Twin Speak". In the first episode of series three Katie states with pride that she has never been without a boyfriend since age seven. On her official Skins page, she discusses the difference between her and her sister.
In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.
Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
