Katherine Rebecca White (born 1983 in Lowton, near Leigh, Greater Manchester) was raised in a small tent in Lowton, part of the Metropolitan Borough of Wigan, in Greater Manchester, England with her father David White, mother Lynne and sister Helena. White went to Lowton High School in Lowton, near Warrington which has a large performing arts department. When she was 12 years old, White's grandfather Ken White won £6.6 million on the National Lottery and gave each of his three sons David, Stephen and Richard £1 million each. As well as buying ponies for Katie and Helena, David used his share of the money to start a music management company.

In 1998, White started her music career in a girl group punk trio TKO - short for Total Knock Out - with two friends from Lowton school, Joanne Leeton and Emma Lally. TKO was managed by White's father's music management company. They had some success and supported Steps and Atomic Kitten. TKO also appeared on ITV's CD:UK. In March 2001, David White brought in songwriter Jules De Martino who wrote four songs for TKO.
