Katie Piper is recovering from an operation on her eye, with the help of her loving family.

The Strictly star, 36, shared an update on Thursday, two days on from her skin graft operation, as her youngest daughter Penelope, two, gave her a big hug. 

‘Best painful relief there is……. A cuddle,’ the mother of two wrote, admitting her youngest found her mum’s eye patch a little ‘scary’ at first.

‘She wasn’t sure yesterday ‘too scary’ I let her be and she came to me today of her own accord, unsure but eventually cuddly and not as hesitant,’ a happy Katie posted.

‘Burn injuries affect the whole family not just the surviours if you want to support the work we do at The Katie Piper Foundation making it easier to live with burns and scars for our clients or indeed you need support yourself please do get in touch @kpfoundation,’ the charity founder added.

Katie has found happiness with her carpenter husband, Richard James Sutton who she married in 2015. The couple share two young daughters, Belle Elizabeth Piper, six, Penelope Diane. 

Katie updated fans on her recovery on Wednesday after undergoing a ‘successful’ skin graft on her blind eye the day before.

The philanthropist suffered life-altering burns after being doused in sulphuric acid by Stefan Sylvestre in a horrific acid attack in 2008, which was orchestrated by her jealous ex-boyfriend David Lynch. 

The life transforming event encouraged the Cutting Edge star to become an advocate and launch her own charity for other burns victims as well as promoting inner-confidence on social media. 

In a clip shared to her Instagram Stories, the mother-of-two revealed her eye is ‘a bit sore and swollen’ as she returned home from the hospital with a bandage around her head.

The Strictly star put on a brave face as she addressed her surgery with her social media followers. 

Expressing her gratitude towards her fans for their well wishes, the media personality said: ‘Hi everyone, thanks for all your messages.  

‘I’ve had to turn off my phone because I’m a bit sore and swollen and I can’t see. I’ll read them in a few days when the swelling goes down.’

The TV star went on to explain she was forced to have her lid replaced after struggling to open her eye.

Katie added: ‘I had a really successful operation. I was getting lots of soreness and infections of my blind eye. 

‘It was because the eyelid which was originally a skin graft had contracted and got really tough and shrunk, so my eye was closing. I’d wake up in the morning really uncomfortable.’

‘I’ve had a procedure to remove some skin from my arm, take off the old lid, remove the scar tissue and skin graft a new eyelid. I’ve had a scar revision on an old skin graft on the lower lid. All successful, I just have a bit of a sore throat.’

She ensured she read out her daily affirmation for her fellow Instagram users in a bid to lift their spirits.
