Kathryn Flett (born c1964) is a British TV critic, author, and star of the BBC's Grumpy Old Women series, was educated at Notting Hill & Ealing High School, and Hammersmith and West London College.
Kathryn began her career as a staff writer for i-D Magazine in 1985. This was followed by a stint as features editor and fashion editor of The Face (1987-1989), three years as a freelancer, and then editor of Arena magazine from 1992-1995. In 1995, at the age of 31, she joined The Observer as associate editor of the magazine Observer Life, later becoming a features writer and TV critic on the newspaper.
In 1997, she proved the adage that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. Her husband of just 17 months had just left her, and the couple were going through a messy divorce. Flett found an outlet for her grief by writing about the break-up in gory detail, week-by-week, in her Observer newspaper column. Then she published a book about the relationship, The Heart-shaped Bullet in 1999.
Since 2004 Kathryn has starred in the BBC TV’s Grumpy Old Women series and in 2008 was a judge on Channel 4’s Miss Naked Beauty.
