Yesterday, Arthur Collins was found guilty of five counts of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm and nine counts of assault occasioning actual bodily harm after Britain's biggest acid attack.

Ferne McCann's ex and the father of her child, Sunday, sprayed the corrosive liquid at party goers at Hackney nightclub, Mangle, on April 17.

22-year-old Lauren Trent, who was out celebrating her birthday on the night that she was covered in the liquid, has now appeared on This Morning to speak out about her ordeal...

When asked what she'd say to him, she replied: "What do you say to someone who throws acid? I don't think anyone would have a defined thing to say.

"There's nothing he could say that would justify what he did.

"I'd say, 'What would you do if it was your friend, or your mother, sister, or daughter?"

She continued: "They do something so quick and throw liquid like that out of a bottle.

"But they're life scars. We've got to wake up with that everyday."

Arthur is due to be sentenced on 20th December and Lauren hopes that he gets life in prison.

This comes after Ferne McCann announced the name of her baby on Instagram, but fans were quick to criticise, with some even branding it 'stupid'.

She broke the news via her Instagram page with an adorable picture of the pair.

She captioned the image: "I thought today would be the perfect day to tell you all her name...meet Sunday :heartpulse::heartpulse::heartpulse:"

Fans have been quick to comment, with one writing: "Taking after ferne McCann naming her baby Sunday my next baby will be called Thursday #"

Another added: "so happy for you I think your amazing, but that name :see_no_evil::see_no_evil::see_no_evil: their gonna call her sun or sunny ‍♀️"

"Cute baby but not a fan of the name. Sorry," apologised another.

Lots of the comments are in support of the name though, so each to their own!
