Katie Price pictured with bruised face after alleged assault at her Essex home

New pictures are said to show the full extent of Katie Price's injuries following an alleged assault that took place at her Essex home.

The 43 year old was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Monday 23 August morning with "facial injuries" after the alleged attack.

A 32 year old man, who was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour, was released on bail until 20 September on Tuesday morning.

Photos have been released of TV personality Katie for the first time since the alleged incident took place.

The former glamour model can be seen dressed in a green hoodie with red checked trousers in the snaps, while her brunette mane is swept out of the way in a low pony tail.

Katie's face is seen bruised on the right side of her cheek and her lip is damaged, too. Her eye also appears to be surrounded by a purple bruise.

Essex Police said in a statement after the incident: "We were called by colleagues in the ambulance service to reports of an assault shortly after 1.30am this morning, Monday 23 August.

"We arrived and found a woman had sustained a facial injury which required hospital treatment.

"A man was arrested a short time later on suspicion of assault."

According to The Sun Online, Katie's £50,000 engagement ring gifted by her fiancé Carl Woods when he proposed in April, 10 months into their romance, was stolen during the alleged attack.

A source said: "Katie no longer has her ring. It cost thousands but went during the incident."

The star spoke out on the incident after being discharged from hospital on Monday. "I've got a big bruise, my face is all puffy, and I went to hospital," she told the same publication.

"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."

An insider also said the mum-of-five is "too upset" to return to her home, where the alleged assault took place, and is staying with friends.

They said: "Katie is so upset and far too emotional to go back to her home.

"She's staying with friends and resting up to recover from her injuries. She's sent friends to pick up some stuff she needs from the Essex house so she's comfortable."
