She married third husband Kieran Hayler in 2013 and they share and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven. The couple renewed their marriage vows three times before splitting in 2018.

Price was arrested in January on suspicion of breaking her restraining order against Penticost.

She is said to have sent messages calling her a "c***ing w***e piece of s**t" and a "gutter s**g".

Price had pleaded not guilty at a hearing at Crawley Magistrates Court on 27 April and requested a Crown court trial. But she has now changed her plea to guilty.

She had been handed a five-year restraining order in June 2019 banning her from contacting Penticost directly or indirectly.

The order came after Price hurled a foul-mouthed abusive rant at Penticost during a row in a school playground.

The former glamour model has just escaped a jail sentence for speeding charges, which took place just days before her drink-drive crash.
