Katie Prices sister says shes like a cat with nine lives after crash nightmare

Katie Price's sister Sophie has opened up about how she felt following Katie's car crash back in September in the new BBC documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me.

Sophie described Katie, 43, as "a cat with nine lives," and revealed that her sister is "very good at covering up when she's not feeling right."

"When you see Kate she puts on such a front that you think she's alright, she's fine," Sophie said. "But clearly she's not. When people have mental health problems they're very good at covering it up and Kate is. She's very good at covering up when she's not feeling right.

She continued: "She doesn't really talk about her feelings that much. At least now she's in the place where she can confront them, talk about them and it's good because she's now talking to us about them."

Remembering the incident itself, Sophie, 32, recalled, "When I saw the police there I thought, 'Oh god here we go she's really done it this time.'

"She's like a cat with nine lives as well. I looked and I thought here we go this is gonna be a nightmare."

At the time of the crash, Katie's family released a statement on her Instagram: "As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate's wellbeing and overall mental health. Today our worst fears nearly came true. As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.

"We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone."

Following the incident, Katie – who's mum to Harvey, 19, Junior, 16, Princess, 14, Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven – pled guilty to drink driving and spent a month at a Priory mental health facility where she was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.

"We've all made it really clear to her that if something's wrong or you're not feeling right, or there's a little tap on your shoulder that says something's not right, she's got to just be open and tell us," Sophie explained.

"Of course it was a shock. It was awful. Absolutely awful. Imagine, she could have killed someone or she could have killed herself."

Reflecting on how the incident impacts Katie's eldest child Harvey, Sophie said: "Harvey's in Harvey's world. He's not aware of the situation. He wouldn't understand it. He can continue with his day to day. Nothing changes for Harvey"
