Katie Price has pleaded guilty at Crawley Magistrates’ Court to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance.

Price told police “I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all”, a court heard.

Her appearance in court comes following a crash near her home in Sussex on Tuesday.

Katie’s family shared concerns over her "wellbeing and overall mental health".

In the statement, her family said "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.”

They added: "We are concerned and worried about her deeply, we know she lives her life publicly and to many she is fair game, but as a family we hope she can find her path privately moving forward during this very difficult period in her life.

"We are not asking for sympathy - just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell."

The two magistrates, including chair of the bench Julie Hutton, have risen to consider their decision on the TV star’s punishment.

Katie Price remains in the dock, chatting to one of the officers.
