Katie Piper is quickly earning herself an army of fans as she lights up the Strictly dancefloor with professional dancer Gorka Marquez every Saturday night. The busy mum-of-two found time in her hectic rehearsal schedule for a night on the town at the launch party for Stacey Solomon's new Primark collection. Katie looked stunning in her yellow wrap dress as she posed for photographers with Stacey and her fellow Strictly contestant Ashley Roberts. The best bit though is the price – just £20 from our fave high street store Primark. Best. News. Ever. Cue mad rush to Primark by everyone.
Katie looked sensational in the mustard yellow dress, which is part of Stacey's new range for Primark. The star teamed the frock with some glitzy gold sandals, some vampy dark nail polish and wore her long blonde hair down. Katie looked to be having a fabulous time as she partied alongside fellow celebs Georgia May Foote, Vicky Pattinson and Imogen Thomas.

In an exclusive chat with HELLO!, Katie, who is married to carpenter and builder Richard James Sutton, told us why she joined Strictly. She said: “I took part in Strictly as I knew I still had areas in my life where I don’t feel as free and confident and this is one of them. I wanted to use the show as a tool to learn how to let go and feel sexy. I used to feel like this some years ago and would like to get a small bit of it back."
The £20 dress from Primark
Katie suffered a devastating acid attack a decade ago and has since undergone 250 operations for her injuries. It left her partially blind in one eye and with severe burns, for which she still receives treatment.
She explained: "The mind is the most powerful tool you can call on in times of need and I’ve used it many times. I’ve found techniques that work for me – meditation has been a great help over the past two weeks. I’ve tried to stop reading comments online because if you believe everything, it makes you feel like rubbish."
