KATIE Price will make her first public appearance this Friday at the British LGBT Awards after being allegedly assaultedat her home.
The brave mum-of-five is due to attend the event on Friday, just days after being left "dazed and devastated" by an alleged attack at her home.
The star-studded ceremony is being hosted by TV presenter Gok Wan and RuPaul's Drag Race UK winner Lawrence Chaney.
It will see a host of big names in attendance at The Brewery in London, including singers Anne-Marie and Ellie Goulding, Loose Women's Denise Welch, Spice Girls singer Mel C, Britain's Got Talent judge Alesha Dixon, soap stars Beverly Callard and Kieron Richardson and Love Island's AJ Pritchard.
Harry Styles, Sam Smith and Cara Delevingne are among those nominated for gongs.
This year Killing Eve's Jodie Comer, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK's Michelle Visage, comedian Jennifer Saunders, TV presenter Dermot O’Leary and Spice Girl Melanie C are among the contenders for the Celebrity Ally prize, previously awarded to Prince William in 2017.
Fleabag actor Andrew Scott, Queer Eye star Tan France, singer Demi Lovato and Sex Education's Gillian Anderson are all in the running for the Celebrity of the Year award.
While Channel 4’s hard-hitting AIDS drama It’s a Sin has been shortlisted for the Media Moment prize.
For the first-time ever the British LGBT Awards will also shine a light on the absence of an openly gay football player in England's Premier League and why LGBT+ inclusion remind a taboo subject for the sport.
This new award, for 2021 only, will highlight football personalities who are working to break down barriers and help to reach the moment when footballers can be their authentic selves on the playing field.
Nominees include Arsenal’s Héctor Bellerín, Liverpool FC captain, Jordan Henderson, Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy and Match of the Day host Gary Lineker.
Following Monday's alleged attack on Katie, Essex Police confirmed that a man had been arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour.
He has since been released on conditional bail until September 20 pending further investigation on all three counts.
Talking exclusively to The Sun after the alleged attack, Katie 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 the police that I was assaulted and am in shock that this happened."
