A criminal case against the fiance of Katie Price has been dropped by prosecutors.

Carl Woods had been charged with using threatening, insulting or abusive words or behaviour against his partner.

The reality TV star, 33, was alleged to have attempted to force open a door to a property while the former glamour model was inside after she left his home following a row.

But the charge was dropped by the Crown Prosecution Service due to there no longer being a “realistic” chance of conviction.

In March, Colchester Magistrates’ Court heard the charge related to an incident in Great Dunmow, Essex, on 22 August, when the couple allegedly had an “argument” in Mr Woods’ home.

In a statement, a spokesperson for the CPS said that the charges were dropped because there was “no longer a realistic prospect of conviction”.

“The CPS has an obligation to keep cases under continuous review,” they said.

“As part of our review and in accordance with our legal test we concluded that there was no longer a realistic prospect of conviction and the case was stopped.

“The Crown Prosecution Service takes seriously all situations where a person’s behaviour causes fear and we will seek to prosecute suspects when our legal test is met.”
