Kate Lawler ingeniously creates face mask out of sanitary pads on the tube

Kate Lawler has proven how resourceful she can be in an emergency after creating a face mask out of sanitary pads. 

The former Big Brother star found herself in a sticky spot while travelling on the London Underground, after realising she’d forgotten her traditional face mask at home. 

Desperate to avoid catching the Omicron variant of Covid, Kate, 41, had a light bulb moment when she realised the spare sanitary towels in her bag could have more than one protective use. 

Kindly sharing the life hack on social media, the presenter quipped: ‘If you’d have told me in January 2020 that in two years from now, I’d stick two sanitary towels on my face to create a makeshift mask while on the train, I’d have thought you were drunk.’ 

In the video, she’s seen sitting on the tube with two sanitary towels casually stuck across her nose and mouth. 

‘Forgot my face mask but found two sanitary towels in my backpack. Don’t judge. It’s this or Omicron,’ she wrote. 

This Morning presenter Alison Hammond was highly amused by Kate’s creation and commented a string of cry laughing emoji, while TV star Rickie Haywood-Williams applauded: ‘Improv – completed it mate 👌🏾.’ 


The Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown confessed: ‘You are wonderful! I’ve used sani pads to pick up dog poo too. So many uses!’ 

Big Brother’s Narinder Kapur suggested: ‘I just died. Stick your coat over your mouth ??’ 

One of Kate’s followers shared: ‘My friend had to use a pair of her 6 year old’s spare pants as a mask to go into the supermarket a few months ago but this wins 😂.’ 

Kate later explained that she was on her way to work at Virgin Radio and shared an update on her mask emergency. 

‘You know what, it worked for a little while until I got to Superdrug and got some new ones,’ she revealed, before asking her followers what else they’ve made a mask out of. 

In a Q&A on her Instagram stories, Kate also provided fans with an exciting update on her wedding plans with fiance, Martin ‘Boj’ Bojtos, confirming they’ve booked a venue in London while also finding her wedding dress.
