Katie Price has arrived at Crawley Magistrates' Court to find out her sentencing following her drink-drive crash.

The 43-year-old star has previously admitted to drink-driving, driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

Katie wrapped up warm for her court appearance wearing a blue jacket, pink hoody underneath and a Covid face mask.

She entered her pleas at Crawley Magistrates; Court on September 29, a day after telling police officers: "I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all"following a collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green.

Katie was already banned from driving when she got behind the wheel.

Officers had responded to the crash at about 6.20am, and Katie was arrested and taken to hospital.

The court heard a drugs wipe gave a positive reading for cocaine and a roadside breath test taken by the TV personality following the accident was positive for alcohol.

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

Katie's defence solicitor Joe Harrington told Crawley Magistrates Court in September that getting behind the wheel while on a ban had been a "one-off" incident for the star who had been at home lonely and decided to see a friend.

Mr Harrington requested for magistrates to defer sentencing for several weeks – which was granted on the basis that the former glamour model would undergo treatment at the Priory last month.

After the crash, Katie's family had expressed concern for her wellbeing.

In a statement from the family shared on Price’s Instagram account, they penned: "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."
