Police were called to Price’s home in Essex around 1.30am, according to reports, to find that she had ‘sustained a facial injury which required hospital treatment’.

A 32-year-old man was later arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour.

Disclosing her injuries, Price 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.’

She continued:

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.

The fight was unprovoked – I was just sitting there watching telly when the assault happened. I can’t say any more.

Prior to the police arriving, neighbours said they heard something happening at the property. An unnamed neighbour told MailOnline, ‘There was something kicking off because I heard loads of shouting and screaming. It was definitely going off.’

Another said, ‘It was anti social and sounded like a load of p*ssheads coming back from the pub. There was a real kerfuffle.’

A source close to Price also told the publication that while she was okay, she is ‘understandably, utterly devastated’.

Price is currently working alongside police with their investigation.
