First Dates model Sophie was attacked with acid by Ferne McCann’s ex

First Dates hopeful Sophie Hall left viewers emotional following last night's episode.

The Miss England finalist was left scarred for life when former TOWIE star Ferne McCann's vicious ex-boyfriend threw acid over her outside a nightclub back in 2017.

But, not letting the attack hold her back, Sophie went on to find love during the episode with Bailey.

Opening up to her date, Sophie, 23, spoke about the moment she was sprayed with acid alongside 21 other people, in a powerful confession that left viewers overcome with emotion.

The beauty pageant Queen was out celebrating her pal Lauren Trent's 22nd birthday and said: "I knew my face was a mess. I could feel it in my hands.
