Pattie Coldwell (14 May 1952 – 17 October 2002) was a British TV presenter and journalist.

Born in Clitheroe, Lancashire, she attended Clitheroe Royal Grammar School for Girls before working as a secretary and starting in local television (Granada TV) as a reporter and presenter. She progressed to nationally networked programmes, such as Nationwide, Open Air, Loose Women and, on BBC Radio 4, You and Yours. Her premature death resulted from brain cancer at the age of 50; she had had breast cancer previously.

Her partner for several years was the historian and broadcaster Michael Wood. She was married twice, first to Tony Kerner, then to Evan in 1998 (she kept his identity a secret), and is survived by her second husband, as well as her daughter Dannie (b. 1992) from her first marriage.
