Katie Price avoids jail for restraint order breach

Reality TV star and former glamour model Katie Price

Katie Price has avoided jail after admitting breaching a restraining order against her ex-husband's fiancée.

Price sent abusive messages to Kieran Hayler about his fiancée, Michelle Penticost, in January, a court heard.

She had been warned that she faced jail after pleading guilty, but the 44-year-old was handed a community order.

Price had been banned from contacting Ms Penticost directly or indirectly under the terms of the order.

She was given an 18-month community order to carry out 170 hours of unpaid work

with an additional 20 hours for breach of a suspended sentence for driving matters.

Price was also ordered to pay £1,500 in costs.

Judge Stephen Mooney told her: "In my judgement, this offence was committed out of anger.
