Katie Price says she hit ‘rock bottom’ after drink-driving crash

KATIE Price has admitted she hit “rock bottom” after her drink-driving crash last year, and said she she “regrets” getting in the car that night.

The former glamour model was handed a 16-week suspended sentence in December for the offence, which was committed while she was disqualified and did not have insurance.

She also faces the possibility of jail after being arrested on suspicion of breaching a restraining order last week.

Speaking during a Channel 4 documentary about the renovation of her so-called Mucky Mansion, Katie spoke about the impact of the crash.

The 43-year-old 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.”

She said she had committed to seeing a therapist, after receiving treatment for her mental health at the Priory Centre.

Katie added: “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.”

It comes after Katie announced on Wednesday that she will be launching a channel on OnlyFans where she will share “glamorous shots” and updates about her life with her fans.

The former glamour model, who was known professionally as Jordan, attended the event in London dressed as a nun.
