Katie Price has spoken in a rare TV interview about making a suicide attempt after being arrested for drink driving.

The former glamour model, 44, was arrested in September 2021 after flipping her car near her home in West Sussex, and admitted drink driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance at court.

In her first TV interview in a year, she said: "What I want from the future is to definitely make a comeback and prove to people I can, because I've been there, and I've told my story.

"Literally, I hit rock bottom. It was that bad that I tried to commit suicide, but I've come up from that. You can get out of that rut. If I can do it, you can do it."

She added: "Remember, nothing is that bad. It's just when you're in that bad place your mind ruminates and you think you can't get out of that rut, but you can do it. If I can do it, you can do it."

The mum-of-five also said that she goes to therapy every week and explained how it had been life-changing for her.

Price said: "I know what my triggers are now, like on Instagram and stuff you'll notice I don't really attack anyone or do anything anymore because where's it going to get me? It doesn't get you anywhere.

"So now, even if I receive a text from someone and I want to go on and have a go, I'll think about it, and then I just don't bother."

Talking about the traumas that have affected her life, she said: "I've had a lot of trauma. Ex-husbands have been traumatic, I broke my feet, my mum is ill, there's just quite a lot of things.

"I've had kidnap threats, ransom demands, it has just all happened. My therapist actually said to me he's never met someone who's had so much actual real trauma-events happen in their life as me."
