Taking to Instagram, the former glamour model; who avoided a jail sentence for a one car collision last September, bragged about getting a flash new car.

“I’ll make sure my new car will be flash like him."

She was charged with driving without third party insurance and driving whilst disqualified following a crash near her home in Sussex in September 2021.

A spokesperson from Sussex Police said: “Katie Price, 43, of Worthing Road, Horsham, was charged with using a motor vehicle on a public place without third party insurance and driving whilst disqualified.”

“She was remanded in custody and will appear at Crawley Remand Court on Wednesday (September 29).”

An image shared by police from the scene on Tuesday showed a car flipped on its side.

Following the collision, she told police: “I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all”.

The court heard a drugs wipe gave a positive reading for cocaine and a roadside breath test was positive for alcohol.

In December she was handed a 16-week suspended jail sentence for the incident.

The former glamour model, 43, was also banned from driving for two years.

Not one to shy away from drama, Katie was arrested in January for allegedly sending abusive text messages to her ex Kieran Hayler and his fiancée Michelle Penticost.

The reality star was seen being driven away from Worthing police station in a Mercedes on Saturday January 22nd, after being quizzed by cops who had picked her up at her home in Horsham at 5.45pm on the day prior.

The text is said to breach a restraining order that was imposed on Katie in 2019 after she called Michelle a "f***ing c***" during a confrontation at the school gates.

She was forbidden for five years from contacting Michelle "directly or indirectly".

Katie had described the court drama as "exaggerated nonsense" and wasn't sorry because she "didn't do anything that bad” but she later pleaded guilty to using threatening and abusive words or behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress at Horsham Magistrates Court.

Breaching the order carries a maximum prison sentence of five years.

Katie and Kieran who were wed in January 2013 and share two children, Bunny (5) and six-year-old Jett, but split in early 2018 following numerous allegations of cheating.

Kieran is now engaged to Michelle and they share a baby son called Apollo.
