EastEnders actress Katie Jarvis has said she’s “absolutely fine” after reportedly getting glassed on a night out.
The star, who plays Hayley Slater in the BBC soap, claimed she needed hospital treatment after she was attacked on Friday night in London.
She took to Twitter to claim a man had attacked her, tweeting the Metropolitan Police: “Big thank you to the Met police tonight and ambulance service for looking after me after I was glassed by a drunken Irish man for [expletive] all.”
She later deleted the tweets.
However, Katie has now reassured fans she is doing well, saying she’s “a soldier and been through hell of a lot worse”.
She wrote on Twitter: “Ok to put people’s minds, and questions to rest. I am absolutely fine thank you so much for all your concern and checking in on me but I’m a soldier and been through hell of a lot worse.
“Now you can start focusing your concerns on some real news Love you all xx.”

Katie, 27, joined EastEnders in February 2018 to play Hayley, the cousin of Jessie Wallace’s Kat Moon.
She was involved in a major story line later that year when it emerged she had had an affair with Alfie Moon.
Katie has been off-screen in the soap for the last several weeks because her character Hayley was convinced to seek treatment for her history of self-harm and drinking.
