Katie, who was left with burns to her face and body after an acid attack in 2008, said: “I’m fine with dressing up as a cat or a wizard.
“But the trend towards fake scars, blood and gore seems like a backward step. I’d like to teach our kids that it’s normal to be scarred, disfigured or disabled.

Katie spoke as Strictly ­prepares for its Halloween extravaganza on October 27.
