Katie Piper, a model and aspiring TV presenter, has always been quick to pay tribute to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital staff who continue to provide ongoing care in a number of different specialties.

Katie, who suffered severe burns in the attack in March 2008, told her story in a Channel 4 documentary Katie: My Beautiful Face broadcast in October 2009 which was nominated for a BAFTA.

Her new book Beautiful is a harrowing but ultimately inspiring story of Katie’s courage in fighting to rebuild her life.

In the new four-part Channel 4 documentary Katie: My Beautiful Friends, Katie meets other people who have experienced different forms of disfigurement.

  • The first episode of Katie: My Beautiful Friends will be broadcast at 9pm on Tuesday 22 March on Channel 4
