Katie Piper praised by This Morning fans for "inspiring" new show

Her story struck a chord

Katie Piper has appeared on This Morning to talk about her new show, Katie Piper's Face To Face, that sees her meet other skin condition sufferers as they undergo beauty makeovers.

Katie suffered an horrific attack in 2008 where an ex-partner threw sulphuric acid into her face.

Today she was joined on the sofa by Rochelle and Nancy, who both took part in the Channel 4 show, as they spoke to hosts Eamonn Holmes and Ruth Langsford.

This Morning viewers were quick to praise the three women branding them "incredible".

"@KatiePiper_ you literally give me life!!" said another.

A third gushed: "Incredible women".

A fourth added: "@KatiePiper_ Katie you look amazing on @thismorning such a strong and inspirational woman."

Another said she felt "inspired" by the TV personality: "@KatiePiper_ Katie I suffer from chronic pain. I think you're amazing & inspire me [sic]."

Katie then offered her advice during the show's phone-in segment to those who were seeking confidence in the way they looked.

Katie Piper's Face to Face is set to air Tuesday night and will see those who suffer from conditions such as vitiligo and eczema, as well as fellow acid attack survivors, getting "empowering makeovers".

The women will then discover that the make-up artists who gave them the makeover actually have the same condition as them.

Katie's assault left her badly scarred and the former model has since undergone over 100 surgeries to reconstruct her face.

And she revealed last month that her three-year-old daughter has now started to ask about her scars.

Speaking to The Sun's Fabulous magazine Katie, 33, said: "She asks about the scars and I explain: ‘Mummy got burnt’.

"Sometimes she’ll ask if it hurts and I tell her it used to, but not any more.

"She’s aware of everything that’s going on, and we tell her what she wants to know when she asks."
