Katie Price is no longer fighting on the Boxing with the Star bill in aid of Isabel Hospice


TV celebrity Katie Price has pulled out of next month’s Boxing With The Stars show in aid of a Welwyn Garden City-based hospice.

The Loose Women panellist and former I’m a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! contestant was due to appear on the bill of Jake Wood and Spencer Oliver’s charity boxing night at the Royal Lancaster Hotel in London on Friday, October 13, in aid of Isabel Hospice.

However, organisers this evening (Sunday) confirmed that TV reality queen Katie Price will no longer be entering the boxing ring against Bianca Gascoigne.

And promoters are now looking for a last-minute replacement female celebrity to fight Bianca on the night.

Boxing With The Stars’ official Twitter account tweeted: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, Katie Price will no longer be fighting on Friday 13th October. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.”

A subsequent post read: “We are now looking for a female, celebrity opponent to fight against @BiancaGascoigne! Email boxingwiththestars@outlook.com for info. #RT”

Linking to an earlier Boxing With The Stars tweet of the poster, Katie Price tweeted: “I’m on poster but I am NOT fighting anyone I pulled out”

Boxing With the Stars is organised and hosted by EastEnders star Jake Wood and former European super-bantamweight champion Spencer Oliver.

They have chosen to support the Isabel Hospice, a charity that is close to both of their hearts.

Jake Wood said: “Spencer and I are really looking forward to what we’re sure will be an incredible night of celebrity boxing, in aid of the Isabel Hospice.”

Confirmed celebrities for Boxing With The Stars include The Only Way is Essex star Dan Osborne, chef Dean Edwards, Ex On The Beach’s Rogan O’Connor, rapper MC Harvey, Love Island’s Rykard Jenkins, and EOTB’s Jacques Fraser.
