Katie Price set to make her first public appearance after her alleged assault at Mighty Hoopla festival this weekend

KATIE Price is set to appear onstage at London's Mighty Hoopla festival this weekend.

It will be the 43-year-old star's first public appearance since she was allegedly assaulted in her home last month.

Organisers say she will still be performing, issuing a quote from the star saying: "I'll be on stage being me, The Price."

She is set to take entertain crowds for what is being billed as "Hoopla highlight" with festival bosses explaining: "We know what's being planned."

Katie's first public appearance after the alleged assault was due to be at the British LGBT Awards.

However, the star was thought to be in too much pain to go, with her rep telling The Sun: "I can confirm Katie regrettably wont be attending tonight's event, despite her best intentions."

Katie is thought to be using the festival, in south London's Brockwell Park, to relaunch her pop career.

Also performing at Mighty Hoopla are Cheryl Tweedy, Atomic Kitten, Gabrielle, Raye, Alexandra Burke and Becky Hill.

A billing on the festival's website says ot Katie: "Sure to be a Hoopla highlight (we know what’s being planned…)

"HRH will be joining Love Of Huns and Jayde Adams on stage for An Audience with…Katie Price. 'I’ll be on stage being me, The Price.'"

The star has a long singing career performing A Whole New World with ex Peter Andre and trying to represent the UK at Eurovision in 2005.

Following the incident at Katie's house last Monday, in which she was allegedly punched, a man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive control and released on bail.

The TV star, 43, was taken to hospital as police were called to her home in Essex at about 1.30am.

A man in his 30s was held on suspicion of assault, coercive control and theft. Essex Police confirmed he has been released on police bail until next month.
