NTAs 2021: Katie Price makes her first public appearance since alleged assault


Katie Price has made her first public appearance at the National Television Awards since she was allegedly assaulted by a man at the house she was staying at in Essex.

The former glamour model, 43, attended the ceremony at the O2 in London on Thursday alongside her son Harvey, 19, and her sister Sophie, 31. 

The event was a big night for Katie as the star was nominated in the Authored Documentary category for her show Harvey & Me, with the award ultimately going to Kate Garraway for Finding Derek.

In January, Katie Price: Harvey and Me followed Katie and Harvey – who is on the autism spectrum and was born with disabilities including partial blindness, ADHD and Prader-Willi syndrome – as they navigated daily life.

It was released to huge critical and audience acclaim, gathering over five million viewers in 30 days on iPlayer, and becoming the biggest BBC documentary of the period for 16-34 year olds.

Critics also praised the documentary for opening up the conversation about raising disabled children.

Katie is nominated alongside Kate Garraway for Finding Derek, Roman Kemp: Our Silent Emergency, Marcus Rashford: Feeding Britain’s Children and Rob Burrow: My Year With MND.

It comes after police were called to the Essex property at around 1.30am on August 23, and a man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour. He has since been released on bail.

Following the attack, photos showed Katie with a bruise on her cheek and an injured lip. The mother-of-five said that she was attacked as she watched TV.

Katie’s fiancé Carl Woods denied hitting her in a passionate Instagram post he shared two weeks after the incident.

The couple were pictured together for the first time since the alleged assault last week, when they arrived in a grey Bentley at Katie’s £2million home, nicknamed ‘Mucky Mansion’, in Surrey.

During the outing, a solemn-faced Katie sat in the passenger seat and stared out the window, while Carl appeared to be talking to her. Katie, who has beefed up security following the alleged attack, was accompanied by a police car.

Breaking his silence since the alleged assault, Carl took to Instagram to say: ‘I have remained quiet until now due to the investigation being carried out by the police however I have found it so difficult to keep quiet on social media due to speculation and shocking abuse that I have received.

‘Anybody who thinks I hit Katie you’re completely delusional and have no idea of the reality of the situation.

‘I have never and never would do anything to hurt Katie. The truth will be told.’

Katie began dating former Love Island star Carl Woods in June 2020 and announced their engagement in April, just six weeks after her divorce from her third husband Kieran Hayler, 34, was finalised.

Despite the support of her loved ones, the glamour model still ‘doesn’t feel safe’, and has been beefing up the security in the wake of her attack.

Katie told The Sun: ‘I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I ran away after being punched — I ran to Harvey’s house nearby and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured.’

Katie said she was attacked as she watched TV – forcing her to flee in terror to her eldest son’s nearby home.

She said the alleged assault was ‘unprovoked’, adding: ‘I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened.’

Neighbours said they heard ‘loads of shouting and screaming’ on the night the model was rushed to hospital.

One neighbour told MailOnline: ‘There was something kicking off because I heard loads of shouting and screaming. It was definitely going off.

‘It was anti social and sounded like a load of p***heads coming back from the pub. There was a real kerfuffle.

Charges: Police were called to the house Katie (pictured with a bruise after the assault) was staying at in Essex at around 1.30am on August 23, where a man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour

‘Then I saw a car parked across the road for ages. Around half an hour after that I heard loads of talking.

‘I came downstairs to see what was going, but I don’t know what time it was because I didn’t have my phone with me. I didn’t see or hear any cops. I didn’t see any blue lights.’

Another said: ‘We heard an argument at about 11pm. I didn’t hear anything at 1.30am when the police were supposed to have been called because I was asleep.

‘I know that Katie Price had been living next door. I don’t think I had heard any big arguments before last night.’

The former glamour model is mum to Harvey with her footballer ex Dwight Yorke, and co-parents her children Junior, 15, Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre.

The star shares Jett and Bunny with ex-husband Kieran.

Taking to the stage with his co-star, Ant said: ‘Thank you very much indeed’, before going on to recall that the first time they won the award in 2001, Tony Blair was Prime Minister and Newcastle United were qualifying for the Champion’s League. 

He went on to add: ‘I’m shaking. You have no idea how special this is.’
