Kate Elizabeth “Katie” Piper (born 12th October 1983) is a philanthropist and former model and television presenter from Andover in Hampshire, England, UK. Piper had hoped to have a full time career within media, but in March 2008 Sulphuric Acid was thrown in her face.
In 2009, Piper chose to give up her anonymity in order to increase awareness about burn victims. The Channel 4 documentary Katie;My Beautiful Face was first aired on 29th October 2009 as part of the Cutting Edge series; it has subsequently been repeated on several occasion, made available for online on-demand access, and sold internationally.
More recently, Piper has appeared in a follow-up series for Channel 4, released a best-selling autobiography, and had a regular column in weekly magazine Reveal; however, she primarily works for her charitable organisation the Katie Piper Foundation.
