EX-MODEL Katie Piper said her eldest daughter did not want her to kiss her goodnight because she looked “scary”.
Katie — who had 300 operations after an acid attack in 2008 — revealed she cried after seven-year-old Belle said she was frightened by her.
But Katie, 38, who also has daughter Penelope, four, said it was “normal”.
She added: “It was quite sad when I was having some eye surgery and my eldest was like, ‘I don’t really want you to kiss me goodnight, I think you’re scary’.
“And of course, I had a little cry in the bathroom because I was like ‘oh god this is where we are at.’
“But actually, I have to allow her to feel like that because it’s normal.

“If she’s not allowed to feel like that, I am going to make loads of problems.
“I always want that open dialogue and to be able to talk about it.”
Katie and husband Richard Sutton are the parents of the two girls.
