Katie Price jokes about ferrying kids on pink moped after driving ban

Katie Price has made light about her driving ban by joking she would use a pink moped on the roads. The former glamour model was banned from driving following her car crash in mid-September.

At her sentencing in December, the 44 year old was handed a two-year driving ban, having pleaded guilty to drink-driving without insurance and whilst disqualified.

The sentencing marked the sixth time Katie has been banned from driving over the last 10 years.

Now, nine months later, Katie has expressed her desire to get back on a motor vehicle – specifically, a pink moped.

Referencing a previous time she used the vehicle, she said: "When I was in Thailand, being on the Moped I loved them. I can't want to get a pink Moped again."

She continued: "I can't drive a Moped can I with five kids?"

The comments were made in a documentary that sheds a light on Katie's mental health and how she hit "rock bottom" around the time of the collision.

"At the end of the day I got in the car, I could have killed someone else, I could have killed myself," she said.

Katie continued: "I should be punished and in a way I want to be punished. The time bomb has been ticking and it's exploded now.

"Getting in the car was a terrible mistake which I'm so sorry for. I should never have done it I recognise my mental health has been shaken, the triggers are there, I need help."

Along with the driving ban, the I'm A Celebrity star was also made to serve 100 hours of unpaid community service.

Katie made her way to rehab clinic, The Priory, to seek help with her mental health struggles, depression, anxiety and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Katie continued: "I recognise my mental health has been shaken, the triggers are there, I need help. Mental health is cruel, it's horrible when you go through stuff. There's still hurdles to get over."

Katie says she now has a therapy session every two weeks and is learning to process her emotions and trauma.

She shared her personal experiences and talked about her struggle with mental health ahead of her Channel 4 documentary, Katie Price: Trauma and Me.

The documentary also features the mum of six meets the person who pulled her from the wreckage.
