Katie Price has been arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

The 43-year-old was taken to hospital following a single-vehicle collision near Partridge Green this morning, according to The Sun.

A statement from Sussex Police said: ‘Police responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green around 6.20am on Tuesday (September 28).

‘A woman, 43, was arrested on suspicion of driving while above the legal limit for alcohol and drugs, and has been taken to hospital to be checked over.

‘The road was blocked temporarily while recovery of the vehicle was arranged.’

Paramedics attended the scene, and confirmed one person was taken to hospital.

A South East Ambulance Service spokesman said: ‘I can confirm we were called at approximately 6.30am to reports of an RTC on the B2135 at Partridge Green.

‘One ambulance crew attended the scene and one person was assessed and treated before being taken to hospital.’

The B2135 has now been opened, with an officer from Sussex police saying the vehicle’s occupant ‘is thankfully on the whole okay’.

A source told the publication: ‘Katie rolled her car and was in a bad way when police arrived.

‘She’s in hospital now and everyone is desperately worried about her and why she was driving.’

A tweet shared by the @SussexIncidents account showed a picture posted by a police officer for Sussex Police shortly before 8am on Tuesday showed a car rolled on its side in West Grinstead in Sussex.

Katie is believed to currently be banned from driving.

The mother-of-five was hit with a two-year driving ban in October 2019 for withholding the identity of the driver of her pink Range Rover during a crash in Bexley in November 2018, with the ban later being reduced to 18 months on appeal.

The ban ended in April, but Katie was ‘horrified’ to be told that she had to serve a further six months due to a previous totting up offence for speeding, when she contacted the DVLA for a new license.

Katie believed the ban extension was due to an ‘admin error’, based on a speeding conviction being sent to an incorrect address.


A rep for the star said in April: ‘Indeed Katie was to receive her licence this week – however on speaking to the DVLA was informed a further time was yet to be honoured due to an admin error in holding an incorrect address for Miss Price.

‘Miss Price is appealing and expects to be driving once this matter has been cleared up.’

The incident comes a day after Katie appeared on Good Morning Britain, where she discussed the difficulty being banned from driving had on her visits to son Harvey, 18.

She said: ‘Harvey’s in Cheltenham now. He keeps ringing me saying, “Mummy I miss you, I need kisses and cuddles”

‘So it is quite hard because obviously I don’t get my licence back till December, so I can’t just whizz in the car there, and it’s not close.’
