KATIE Price is facing another speeding charge after being accused of driving above the 60mph speed limit.

The Brighton-born celebrity was handed a suspended sentence after crashing her BMW on the B2135 near Partridge Green in September last year.

The 44-year-old was given a 16-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, with 100 hours of unpaid work and 20 rehabilitation activity requirement sessions to be completed within the next 12 months.

She was also disqualified from driving for two years and ordered to pay £85 costs.

Katie avoided going to prison on the condition she completed a stay at The Priory rehabilitation clinic.

However, police now state that two weeks before the incident she was clocked at over 60mph on the A24 near West Grinstead.

It is alleged that a Sussex Police speed radar gun caught her speeding on Monday, September 13, last year.

She is accused of failing to provide police with details of who was driving.

If found guilty this could cost another six penalty points on the licence, she has already lost.

The new speeding charge is set to be heard on Tuesday, May 24.

After rolling her BMW, Katie said she is “sincerely grateful nobody was hurt” in a statement released on social media.

“It’s been a really difficult time and I’m incredibly sorry for my actions – I’m sincerely grateful nobody was hurt – I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family, but to my own as well,” she said.

“I’m now spending time getting better — mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.

“The triggers that cause my anxiety and behaviour are something I’m trying to understand, come to terms with, and learn to control moving forward.

“This will be a long process for myself and something I’ll continue to work on for the rest of my life. It’s also something I can work on with my family so we can progress on a new chapter together.

“Thank you for all the messages of goodwill that I’ve received. I’m going to surround myself with my loving family and friends and continue doing the work I love as it brings me enjoyment and helps my mental health.”
