Katie Piper

Author, speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner.

Katie Piper is a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner. Katie made the decision to share her story in a remarkable film for the Cutting Edge strand on Channel 4 called ‘Katie: My Beautiful Face’ which was watched by over 3.5million viewers and nominated for Best Single Documentary at the BAFTA Television Awards in 2010.

In 2009 she set up a charity The Katie Piper Foundation to help people with burns and scars to reconnect with their lives and their communities. Simon Cowell supported Katie by becoming the patron and remains actively involved to date. The charity’s vision is a world where scars do not limit a person’s function, social inclusion or sense of well-being.

In addition to her charity commitments, Katie has also presented a number of TV shows and documentaries such as Katie Piper’s Face to Face, Never Seen A Doctor, three series of Body Shockers and The Death of Aimee Spencer. More recently she has also appeared on Channel 4’s Famous and Fighting Crime as well as BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing.

Katie has also written six books including two autobiographies ‘Beautiful’ and ‘Beautiful Ever After’, an affirmations book called ‘Start Your Day With Katie’ , and self-help books ‘Things Get Better’ and ‘Confidence: The Secret’. She went on to write ‘From Mother to Daughter: The Things I’d Tell My Child’ which details the journey of motherhood and includes diary extracts from her mother during the time Katie was recovering in hospital. Katie’s most recent book, ‘Confidence: The Journal’ includes daily affirmations and encourages the reader to share their own thoughts and experiences and they document their journey to gaining more confidence.

Katie has been described as an inspirational role model, and her bravery and determination have been recognised by being nominated and receiving a number of awards. Most recently she received a special recognition award at The Pride of Britain Awards in London.
