Katie set up her foundation in 2009 after she was attacked with acid the year before. Her charity aims to help people with burns and scars through recovery.

She underwent pioneering surgery to restore her face and vision and now aims to raise awareness about burns victims.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Katie was voted off Strictly Come Dancing alongside her pro partner Gorka Marquez after the judges saved Casualty actor Charles Venn in the dance-off.

Following her elimination, the mum-of-two took to Instagram to thank fans for their continued support throughout the competition.

She said in a video: "Well what a week it's been. Guys, my Strictly journey is officially over. I think it was the right decision because I wasn't the best dancer in the competition.

"But I did have so much fun and to get to week four, I didn't expect to get that far so thank you to you who voted for me and supported me on social media."

She added: "Who I was on week one was so different to how I felt last night. I feel so privileged to have been part of that journey. Big thank you to the BBC and everyone at Strictly, the judges, the contestants and the production for such a great experience."
