Katie Price has spoken out publicly after she dodged jail, following an incident when she was caught driving while banned.

The former model, 43, spoke out on Good Morning Britain insisting that she was looking to moving onwards and upwards after she was given a suspended sentence and a two year driving ban for flipping her uninsured BMW X5 into a hedge in Sussex last year.

Appearing via video link with her eldest son, Harvey, mum-of-five Katie explained the events leading up to the incident, and after, were difficult to come to terms with.

“The events were really traumatic,” she said. “It's been traumatic after, so I'm not ready to talk about it yet. But what I will say is that I went to the Priory and I've made the decision finally to see a therapist every week, forever, to deal with the traumatic events that led me to getting into that car.”

She continued: “I'm very good at hiding things but when I'm ready to talk about it then I will come on to talk. There's reasons why I got in that car and my mental state but when I'm ready I will. 

“I feel ashamed about it all. There are reasons that I am still dealing with now. It's a new year but I'm still dealing with it, people shouldn't judge people, there's always reasons for things.”

Katie added that she was looking forward to a fresh start in the new year, as she promoted her new book ‘Harvey and Me’ which she had written.

“2022 is my year, 22 is my lucky number. My birthday. The main box on Deal or No Deal. This has to be my year of no dramas,” she said.

Katie previously issued a statement following her court hearing where she received her suspended sentence, with the judge telling her she was “lucky” to not be spending Christmas in prison for her ninth motoring offence.

Taking to her Instagram page at the time, Katie wrote she was "incredibly sorry" and "sincerely grateful nobody was hurt".

She added: "I would like to thank my family - my children, my mum, dad, sister, brother, my partner Carl, Leigh, and my friends who have supported me throughout these past few months.

“It's been a really difficult time and I'm incredibly sorry for my actions - I'm sincerely grateful nobody was hurt - I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family, but to my own as well.”
