A MAN arrested on suspicion of assault after Katie Price was allegedly punched at home has today been has been re-bailed until next month.
The suspect was held after the TV star was allegedly punched in the face at her Essex home last month.
Essex Police confirmed the man's bail date has been extended until October, having been previously bailed until September 20.
A source previously told The Sun: "Police have asked for more time to get to the bottom of exactly what went on.
"Investigators will continue to look into the night in question with a variety of forms of evidence to establish what happened before they make a decision whether they will charge the man in question or not."
The TV star, 43, was taken to hospital as police were called to her home in Essex at about 1.30am on August 23.
Mum-of-five Katie was pictured with a bruised face and cut lip after she was allegedly punched in the attack.
Katie told The Sun: "I’ve got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital.
"I’m still all dazed. I’m devastated. I’ve told police that I was assaulted, and am in shock that this happened.
“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.
“I can’t say any more.”
The TV personality and glamour model suffered a bruised face and a suspected fractured jaw.
Hours before the alleged incident, Katie went on social media to share an image taken by fiancé Carl Woods that showed the pair posing with her youngest children Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven.
The image was captioned: “Family time” with a heart. Yesterday’s incident came days after Katie proudly took to Instagram to tell of her joy after her son Junior, 16, landed a record deal.
