Piper was attacked with acid in 2008 and her recovery has been the subject of the documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face, which aired in 2009.
She has undergone more than 100 operations since her ex-boyfriend arranged the brutal attack.
She has since launched a successful career as a television presenter and author, as well as running The Katie Piper Foundation. The charity aims to improve outcomes for burns survivors, helps with rehabilitation and provides a number of other support services.
