Katie Price was forced to cancel her one-woman show at the last minute after blackmailers threatened to harm her disabled son Harvey, warning his face ‘would be smashed in’ unless she paid them £50,000.

The ‘terrified’ mother-of-five called in police after her management company received the anonymous email, which also said her blackmailers would release details of an affair they claimed Katie’s estranged husband Kieran Hayler, 30, was having.

They also demanded that an Armani dress be included with the money and sent to an address in Romford, East London.

Katie said: ‘I’m terrified. This is clearly a blackmail threat, and I need to be at home with my family.’

A source close to Katie added: ‘This is all the more horrifying for Katie because she has experienced threats against her children before.

‘On three separate occasions she has had to get the police involved.

‘The thought of anyone harming the kids sickens her to the core, and until the police have caught the perpetrator, she feels she just can’t leave them.

‘Katie is really shaken by this and is hoping against hope that the police catch this person as soon as possible.’

The sourced added that her children would be ‘living in fear’ until they find out who is responsible for the twisted threat.

Sussex Police are said to be taking the threat ‘extremely seriously’ and are providing protection at her home near Horsham, West Sussex.

‘It is being investigated and enquiries are ongoing,’ they said on Saturday night.

Katie revealed on Saturday that she had to cancel her one-woman show in Manchester later that night, tweeting fans that she had ‘an urgent family matter involving the police and one of my children’.

After details of the sick plot were revealed, Katie took to her Twitter page to tell fans she was on ‘mummy guard’.

She said: ‘In bed can’t sleep my poor little head can’t switch off! I’m on mummy guard too.’

A woman who answered the door at the Romford address denied any knowledge of the threat, it was reported last night.
