Katie Price has admitted to hitting "rock bottom" in her drink-drive crash which she addressed in her new home improvement TV show.

The model and TV star spoke about the controversial incident, which saw her walk away from the December incident where she was also disqualified and without insurance with just a 16-week suspended sentence, in her new Channel 4 documentary, Katie Price's Mucky Mansion.

During the first episode on Wednesday night, she said: "I regret getting in the car, I could have killed someone. I could have killed myself. My kids might not have had a mum. It’s awful.

"I was rock bottom at that point. It was a wake-up call. I don’t want to be in that situation again.

"In fact, I don’t want to be in a situation where I feel that sad inside that I need to just go and do something, be destructive and hurt people around me because I don’t know how to cope with it."

Price, who also faces the possibility of jail after being arrested on suspicion of breaching a restraining order last week, sought help for her mental health at The Priory and added in her new show that she had committed to weekly therapy sessions for life.

She said: "I have now decided to see a therapist every week for the rest of my life and put my hand up and say, 'Yeah I need help, help me'.

"So although there’s situations going on, I am still alive. Yes, there are consequences for what I have done but I just want to breathe.

"My house is now turning into the family home that I couldn’t focus on before for years.

"And now I am turning it back to my home, my hub, it’s all about the future and getting to the next stage, is what I do. And that way I’m a lot happier."

On Friday, Price was visited by police at her home as she had reportedly broken a restraining order by sending an abusive message to ex-husband Kieran Hayler and his fiancee Michelle Penticost.

Price was banned from contacting Penticost in 2019 under the terms of a five-year restraining order and was fined hundreds of pounds for hurling a foul-mouthed “tirade of abuse” at her during a row in a school playground.
