Katie Piper

Philanthropist, Television Presenter and Best-selling Author

Biography

Katie Piper is a best-selling international author, inspirational speaker, TV presenter and charity campaigner. She 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 Piper 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 Piper 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 the summer of 2019 they achieved their goal to open a rehabilitation centre in the UK to offer other burns survivors the treatments that Katie received in France.  

 

In addition to her charity and writing commitments, Piper is also a TV presenter. She has just joined the presenting team for the BBC1’s much-loved ‘Songs of Praise’ from September 2020.  She is also a regular contributor and guest presenter on ITV 1’s Lorraine show.  Prior to this Piper recently hosted ‘Never Seen a Doctor’ on W where she helped people overcome their fears around medical procedures and guided them on their journey back to good health, and joined the Crime and Punishment strand on ITV1 with a documentary called ‘The Death of Aimee Spencer’.  Piper also featured in Channel 4’s ‘Famous and Fighting Crime’ where she trained as a special in the police force.  Her other credits include ‘Katie Piper’s Face to Face’ where she invited women with facial conditions to London’s Harvey Nichols for makeovers with makeup artists who shared the same facial condition and three series of ‘Body Shockers’ where she met people planning major body modifications and introduced them to someone who had already had the modification done and regretted it. In 2018, she also graced the dance floor in BBC1’s hit show ‘Strictly Come Dancing’. 

 

Piper has a weekly podcast called ‘Katie Pipers Extraordinary People’ which has been sponsored by brands as diverse as The Economist, Twinings, Meatless Farms and Bose with guests ranging from Zoella to George Shelley. And she has talked all over the world about her journey and how to be happy and confident to brands like Google, Facebook and at events like WE day.

 

Katie Piper has partnered with a number of brands to create her own range of products and she is very excited to launch her own fragrance in October 2020. She is also the face of a number of beauty brands including Pantene and L’Oreal.
