Horrific pictures show the injuries suffered by a woman stabbed by her best friend during a Fifty Shades-style sex game.
Sarah Holden, 25, was tied down to a bed by 26-year old Shaunna Littlewood who then drove a kitchen knife into a chest while whispering ‘sorry princess.’

Miss Holden, a call centre worker was left fighting for life with internal bleeding close to her heart, a punctured lung and required more than 50 stitches to her face.
