Katie was arrested after flipping her BMW on a country road while driving under the influence, without insurance and while under a driving ban. She will find out if she will be jailed for her crimes today.
It has been almost three months since Katie Price plead guilty to charges related to a drink drive incident and today is the day she will discover what her sentence will be.
The 43-year-old mother-of-five was involved in a single vehicle car accident on September 28th which involved her flipping her BMW and requiring hospital treatment.
The accident happened while the former topless model was under the influence and was also driving while disqualified and without insurance.
She appeared in court later that month to plead guilty to the charges of drink-driving while disqualified and without insurance – and has been warned she could be jailed for her crimes.
Katie will be in Crawley Magistrates’ Court today from 2pm where a judge will finally reveal to her what her fate is – and if jailed, she would likely be behind bars for Christmas.
On the day of her accident, Katie reportedly told police: “I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all” following a collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green.
While at her court hearing the following day she was court ordered to seek treatment at the Priory rehabilitation facility.
She was also ordered not to commit any further offences and was banned from driving while her sentenced was adjourned to December 15th.
While Katie did successfully complete her treatment at the Priory, some fans were concerned to see her heading to Las Vegas for an apparent stunt involving her fiancé Carl Woods.
Katie has also been reported to have visited a plastic surgeon in Europe for a procedure ahead of her sentencing date.
This has lead some fans and followers – and headlines – to speculate that the star has now been taking her situation seriously enough.
Addressing such speculation, Katie hit back this week, starting via social media: “It seems that at the moment the media won’t leave me alone and are trying to portray that I’m not taking this situation serious. Well I’m here to confirm that I definitely am.”
At the time of Katie’s accident, her family released a statement expressing concern for her wellbeing.
Taking over her Instagram at the time, a statement was released reading: “As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate’s wellbeing and overall mental health.
“Today our worst fears nearly came true. As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.
“We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone.”
While in more recent days, Katie has been sharing videos and photos via her social media channels showing herself enjoying quality time with her children including 19-year-old Harvey, eight-year-old Bunny, and seven-year-old Jett.
Reports have suggested Katie is “terrified” of being sent to jail and spending Christmas without her children – with a source telling the MailOnline this week: “The devastating reality of her situation is starting to hit home and Katie is terrified. It’s a reality she has never faced before, which is understandably unnerving.
“It’s not just herself who she’s worried about, it’s the potential reaction of her children. She can’t stop thinking about it and is full of dread, but has been planning as if she is going to have a normal Christmas for the kids as a distraction.”
