Katie Price has issued a statement on social media days ahead of her upcoming court appearance for drink driving.

The former glamour model and reality tv star is due to be sentenced on December 15 after crashing her car earlier this year.

The 42-year-old is the mother of five children, including Harvey, with Dwight Yorke, and Princess and Junior, with Peter Andre.

The incident made headlines nationwide and the former glamour model was warned at the time that she may face prison time.

Price pleaded guilty at Crawley Magistrates’ Court in September following the crash near her Sussex home.

Katie Price issues statement ahead of court date this week

Katie Price has issued a damning statement criticising “the media” before her court date on Wednesday.

She said: “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 seriously.

“Well I’m here to confirm that I definitely am and I don’t appreciate what seems to be the media’s attempt at goading the judge into giving me a custodial sentence.”
