Katie Price to find out if she will be jailed TODAY after flipping car in drink-drive crash

TROUBLED Katie Price will find out if she is going to jail today after flipping her car in a dramatic drink-drive crash.

The reality star was driving to see a pal because she was "lonely" when she overturned her BMW in Horsham, West Sussex, in September.

Price, 43, was already banned from driving when she got behind the wheel.

She was warned by JPs she could be facing jail when she pleaded guilty to one count of drink driving at Crawley Magistrates' Court.

Being in charge of a vehicle while above the legal limit or unfit through drink carries a three-month sentence, possible driving ban and a £2,500 fine.

The former glamour model also admitted one count of driving without insurance and one count of driving while disqualified at the hearing in September.

She was ordered to undertake treatment at the Priory and was slapped with an additional driving ban.

The mum-of-five jetted to Las Vegas with fiance Carl, 32, shortly after leaving the £2,00-a-week treatment centre.

The court was told Price was left “trapped” in her BMW before a witness helped her out and waited for emergency services to arrive.

After being confronted by police at the scene, Price was heard saying "I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all".

Prosecutor Debbie Jones said a drugs wipe gave a positive reading for cocaine but a charge of driving while unfit through drugs was withdrawn by the court. .

She made no comment when taken to the police station but claimed she was “lonely” and wanted to visit a friend who was close by.

Defence solicitor Joe Harrington said at the time: "She has had a lot of personal problems recently.

"Currently she is in the process of bankruptcy proceedings, so her house may be repossessed.

"So, quite a lot going on in this lady's life, a really difficult period.

"As I understand it, she had been drinking, she was lonely, and she decided to go and see a friend who lived a relatively short distance away and that is when the incident happened.

“She has recognised that she is struggling with life at the moment and needs some assistance. 

“She says that she had a meeting with the Priory at 1.30pm. We’ve been in contact with them and she will go from here to there.

“She is going for an assessment. There is no reason why she wouldn’t be admitted to the Priory today.”

He added that it was a “one-off incident” and that she overcorrected her driving, which is what caused her to crash.

Her crash came just hours after she spoke about her difficulty visiting son Harvey because she couldn't get behind the wheel.

Speaking on GMB she explained: "Obviously I don't get my licence back until December, so I can't just whizz in the car down there and it's not close."

Katie expected to get her driving licence back in April, but was banned for a further six months following an admin bungle.
