Katie Piper
The aftermath of facial disfigurement

Eighteen months ago Katie Piper was a beautiful young woman setting out on a career as a model and TV presenter. Then in 2008 she suffered a horrific attack, arranged by her former boyfriend. Acid was thrown in her face, causing extensive third degree burns and blindness in one eye. Katie has since had over 30 operations and her life has changed beyond recognition. Katie and her mother Diane join Jenni to talk about what happened and the impact on Katie and her family.
