Speaking during the launch show, Katie revealed she had received a message of support from the surgeon who treated her after her acid attack.
Katie was left badly scarred when she was doused with sulphuric acid in March 2008.
Her attacker Stefan Sylvestre, who was acting on the orders of her ex-boyfriend, was handed a life sentence in 2009.
Speaking about the life-changing event on the show, Katie said: “I was quite badly burnt when I was younger. I had acid thrown in my face and I had a very long recovery.
“I got the loveliest text from my burn surgeon saying: ‘Wow my patient who was once learning to walk again is now dancing’.
“It was a place I never thought I’d be. I’m gonna give it my all.”
