Katie Price has been left "devastated" following an alleged assault on Monday.

The 43-year-old reality TV star was allegedly assaulted at her home in Essex around 1.30am on Monday morning and police subsequently reported to the scene and arrested a man in his thirties, while Katie was taken to hospital to be treated for her injuries, which include a suspected fractured jaw.

Sharing photos with The Sun following the incident, the former glamour model showed off the large bruise on her right cheekbone and a cut on her lip.

Revealing what happened, she said, "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 (her son) Harvey's house nearby and have now done damage to my feet, which I previously injured. The fight was unprovoked - I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened. I can't say anymore."

Katie explained that she was then driven to a nearby friend's house before paramedics were called and she was taken to hospital, where she stayed for a few hours before being discharged.

Essex Police representatives confirmed in a statement that the man who had been arrested was still in custody as of Monday night.

"We were called by colleagues in the ambulance service to reports of an assault shortly after 1.30am. We found a woman had sustained a facial injury which required hospital treatment," they said. "A man was arrested a short time later on suspicion of assault. He remains in custody."
