Katie Price hopes Drag Race will prove shes lovable after drink-driving conviction

Katie Price is hoping her upcoming appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race UK will help her move on from a tough few months and prove to the British public she is "lovable".

The star, 43, will be appearing on the next series of the much loved show, which starts on BBC Three on 1 February.

Announcing her involvement in the Snatch Game, the show's official Twitter called the star a "pop culture icon."

The tweet read: "As you may have heard in the press, pop culture icon @KatiePrice will be joining Michelle Visage to play the Snatch Game. #DragRaceUK"

And according to OK!'s source, mum of five Katie is hoping her appearance on the beloved show will help heal her image after a tricky few months, which saw her handed a suspended sentence for drink driving.

The source told us: "Drag Race is another way for Katie to prove to the nation she is loveable.

"She’s a part of the panel and she gets on really well with Michelle Visage from Celebrity Big Brother. She’s throwing herself into work and trying to move forward with her life."

Katie found herself in court last month after she was caught drink driving in September. The star flipped her car in Partridge Green, West Sussex, on her way to visit a friend on the 28 September.

The star, who is currently engaged to businessman Carl Woods, was given a 16 week suspended jail term.

While sentencing her, District Judge Amanda Kelly told Katie she had "one of the worst driving records I have seen," before adding: "You appear to think that you are above the law."

The conviction is the latest in a string of driving offences and the drink-driving crash also resulted in Katie admitting to driving while disqualified and driving without insurance.

Katie posted an apology on her official Instagram page, writing: "It's been a really difficult time and I'm incredibly sorry for my actions – I'm sincerely grateful nobody was hurt."

She added: "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."
