Katie Price has issued an apology after pleading guilty to crashing her car while under the influence of drink and drugs in September.

The 43-year-old escaped a prison term at her sentencing yesterday, instead being handed a suspended sentence alongside an order to complete 200 hours of community service and 20 rehab sessions.

In her ruling, judge Amanda Kelly warned Price that her actions could have killed someone, adding: "You seem to think you are above the law."

In a statement on Instagram today, Price said: "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.

"I'm now spending time getting better. Mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.

"The triggers that cause my anxiety and behaviour are something I'm trying to understand, come to terms with and learn to control moving forward.

"This will be a long process for myself and something I'll continue to work on for the rest of my life. It's also something I can work on with my family so we can progress onto a new chapter together.

"Thank you for all the messages of goodwill that I've received. I'm going to surround myself with my loving family and friends and continue doing the work I love as it brings me enjoyment and helps my mental health. Thank you everyone."

Price has also had her driving ban extended by a further two years in what is her sixth such ban in the last decade.
