KATIE Price was knocked back by a journalist at the National Television Awards after he told her she was "too old."
In her first appearance since her alleged assault the 43-year-old attended with her son, Harvey, 19 and headed to the afterparty once the awards wrapped up.
The pair were nominated for the Authored Documentary category thanks to their moving and inspiring programme Harvey and Me.
But after missing out to Kate Garraway who won for her film documenting husband Derek’s Covid battle, Katie stuck around to enjoy herself at the NTA after party.
She was asked to be in a video with the blue-eyed journalist Kiran Rai and she happily posed, including pouting and winking at the camera.
The 28-year-old reporter captioned the video: "When you and Katie are so drunk at the NTA."
"She wanted my number and said 'I love your eyes, what's your Instagram'."
Kiran then claimed he told Katie: "[sic] 'I don't do have Instagram plus you're too old for me'. HAHA," and added a laughing emoji face.
Katie was not seen holding any alcohol and was unlikely drinking, as she has been sober since last year.
The Sun has reached out to Kiran for comment.
The mum-of-five looked amazing on the NTA red carpet alongside her oldest son.
Harvey was dressed to impress for the occasion in a black shirt and trousers, while Katie opted for a pair of sequined trousers and shirt.
Speaking on the red carpet to The Sun tonight, Katie said: "Because Harvey has done so well we are filming our second one now.
"There has been so much support. I am so happy that people are seeing a real mother and son disability relationship. What you see is real. Harvey is a massive credit to me and I am so happy we have been nominated."
A insider previously said: “Harvey has been incredibly excited about the ceremony and is heading down from his new college to London to attend.
“Katie is so happy for him and can’t wait to take him and spend some quality time with him at the bash.
“She’s so proud of him and the documentary so is really hoping they win."
Katie was yet to be seen publicly after police were called to her home in Essex at around 1.30am on Monday, August 23.
A man in his 30s was held on suspicion of assault and theft.
The mum-of-five was pictured with a bruised face and cut lip after she was allegedly punched in the attack.
Essex Police confirmed he has been released on police bail until later this month.
Last month, an over the moon Harvey asked his followers to vote for him after he got his NTA nod.
The teen won over viewers in the documentary, which followed Katie as she visited residential colleges as the disabled teen prepared to fly the nest.
Harvey was born with ADHD, autism, genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome, and septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness.
Fans were in awe of Katie's devotion to her oldest child as she spent six months visiting schools to find the best match for his needs.
The Sun later revealed that Harvey had been accepted into his first choice college, National Star – that costs a hefty £350,000 a year.
