Katie started a career as a model, but after a terrible attack where she had sulphuric acid thrown over her face, she had 60 operations to rebuild her face. Katie has since told her story in the BAFTA winning documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face and become a charity campaigner with the Katie Piper Foundation which supports survivors of acid attacks. She has also written books including two autobiographies, self-help books and a guide for parenting.
