"If I go to prison, I go to prison, don't I?"

Andrew Shires, 37, turned up at Leeds Crown Court today to be sentenced for an attack that scarred an aspiring dancer's face and left her career "on hold". Click here to see the interview she did with ITV Calendar last month.

On the steps of court today she said it's been "very difficult, I've had a lot of bad moments" but she was looking forward to "justice being done".
