Katie Piper has spoken about the possibility of her life being made into a Hollywood film. The inspirational 33-year-old overcame a horrific acid attack in March 2008, orchestrated by her ex-boyfriend, and speaking on Lorraine this week, she revealed her story could make its way onto the silver screen. "A producer bought the film rights," she told presenter Mark Heyes. "But it's a funny one because it's not the same as having a cool exciting film, it's a bit dark. I'll have to think about it," she admitted.

The TV presenter also revealed that she has focused on fashion and beauty in the years since the attack, as a way of focusing on something positive in her life. "Clothes are a huge part of who I am, and they're a big thing in my confidence," she said. "Fashion and beauty have helped me. They've been a bit of light relief, a way to recognise I still exist underneath all the trauma."

Earlier this year, Katie revealed that her three-year-old daughter Belle has started to ask her about her scars. "I explain, 'Mummy got burnt'," Katie told the Sun. "Sometimes she'll ask if it hurts and I tell her it used to but not anymore. When I go into hospital for operations on my nose, she'll come with me and she has her own little doctor's kit."

The resilient star added: "She's recently started asking about it, which I thought was so early. She'll say things like, 'Your tubes are so cool!' She thinks they are similar to jewellery and she'll ask where her tubes are. There are pictures of me in bandages and with my mask on around the house and we're very open about things, so it won't be a big reveal one day. She's aware of everything that's going on and we tell her what she wants to know when she asks."
