Celebrity barrister Judge Rinder examined the case of Adele Bellis on his ITV show Crime Stories on Tuesday, May 22.
In 2014, at the age of 22, Miss Bellis was the victim of a horrific acid attack at a bus stop in Lowestoft, where she lost an ear.
The TV judge revisited her case during a 60 minute episode for the third series of his show, where he also looked at the story of Joanne Peacock who discovered her baby had sustained injuries at the hands of her partner.
The episode featured interviews with Miss Bellis, her mother and a close friend about the attack and the aftermath.
Lowestoft man Anthony Riley, Miss Bellis' ex-boyfriend was jailed for life for arranging the attack.
