Katie Price has revealed she took drug tests to prove she was fit to parent her children.

The reality star and mother of five – who previously revealed she had returned to rehab earlier this year – passed the tests to show her children’s fathers Peter Andre and Kieran Hayler she is clean in order to have custody of her children.

Price, 42, told New! magazine: "I'm absolutely fine with them. I've passed all my drug tests. I did a hair strand test and I got all my results and nothing was detected.

"I had to do that to prove it to myself and everyone else around me. It's a new me."

The former glamour model is mother to son Junior, 14, and daughter Princess, 12, with first husband Andre, as well as six-year-old Jett and five-year-old Bunny with third husband Hayler.

Price also has 17-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke. She and Harvey have been isolating together since the start of the coronavirus lockdown, but she did not see her other children for six weeks.

She revealed: "It's been nice to have the house full again. They're homeschooling with their dads in the week and I have them at the weekends.

"Kieran has a routine with Jett and Bunny and he knows what he's doing with all the schoolwork, and then Junior and Princess are having their classes on Zoom and have all their computers set up at Pete's, so it's just easier."

Price admitted being in isolation with Harvey, who has Prader-Willi syndrome, had its challenges.

She said: "I know I'm his mum, but I'm also his carer. When he's frustrated, he's head-butted the walls.

"If he's on his iPad and an advert comes up, it makes him angry. But he's calmed down a lot during lockdown because he's at home.”

Price – who last year split from fiancé Kris Boyson and was declared bankrupt – visited The Priory rehab facility to help confront mental health problems.

She said: “I'm more focused, driven and and happy. A weight has been lifted and it's all good. The best thing I ever did was go to The Priory. My spirits are completely up now."
