Katie Price was recently taken to hospital with a facial injury and her fiancé Carl Woods has said he “never would do anything to hurt” her.

Speaking about the incident for the first time, 32-year-old Woods said “the truth will be told.”

After suffering a facial injury in the early hours of August 23, the 43-year-old was taken to hospital at Little Canfield in Essex and was later discharged.

An Essex Police spokesman previously said officers were called to the scene by the ambulance service and a man was arrested “a short time later” on suspicion of assault.

In a statement on Instagram, Woods wrote: “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 the 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.”

On August 24 a force spokesman said: “A 32-year-old man arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour has been released on bail until September 20.”

On Tuesday police confirmed the investigation is ongoing, adding: “We are in regular contact with the victim and are continuing to support her.

“The man arrested remains on conditional bail until September 20.”
