Katie Price’s fiancé Carl Woods looks solemn in first sighting since her car crash and Priory trip… as it’s revealed the couple fought before she illegally drove during drink and drug binge
The previous day, Katie pleaded guilty to three charges of drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance after crashing her BMW to allegedly hunt for drugs during an all-night alcohol and cocaine bender.
Following her admission of guilt, reports surfaced stating that Katie, 43, and Carl, 32, had fought before she went on her illegal drive, with a source telling The Sun: ‘Katie and Carl had a massive row and things escalated.’
Just hours after Katie arrived at The Priory for drink and drug treatment, Carl was spotted at an Essex petrol station on Thursday. The previous day he shared a cryptic message about ‘his mind killing him’ on Instagram.

Katie, who was already serving a six-month driving ban, had left her property at 5am to pick up more drugs. It was then reported that she got behind the wheel after she had an explosive argument with her fiancé Carl.
She now faces jail after pleading guilty to three charges of drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance at Crawley Magistrates Court.
But prosecutors dropped a drug-driving charge in light of her guilty drink-driving plea. It came just days after family and friends rallied round her following her arrest.

‘She’s been under a lot of pressure over the past few weeks and it seems she just snapped. Katie went off the grid for eight hours as friends tried to track her down.’
Carl was casually-clad in sportswear as he emerged at the petrol station, having posted a now-expired meme showing an anguished Cillian Murphy in character in Peaky Blinders, alongside the words: ‘Nothing kills you like your mind.’
It comes after Carl recently defended himself against allegations that he was the perpetrator of a physical attack on the model at an Essex property last month, while Katie also slammed the suggestion in a statement last month.

On August 23, police officers were called to a property in Essex at approximately 1.30am and a man was subsequently arrested on suspicion of assaulting Katie, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour and released on bail.
Amid whispers about who was the perpetrator and Carl’s denial, the former glamour model, 43, took to Instagram to write: ‘FACT, I’ve ALWAYS said DON’T believe everything you read in the media and what Carl is saying is true.
‘FACT I’ve NEVER called the police on Carl my police investigation I’m currently going through to a incident a few weeks ago is not to do with Carl.’

At court on Wednesday, Katie was told that her sentencing had been deferred for 11 weeks until December 15 to allow her to have treatment at The Priory.
Chair of the bench Julie Hutton told her she could leave but warned her against driving in the interim, saying: ‘You are free to go and good luck at the Priory.’
Sources revealed that Katie will not be contacting the outside world during her stint in rehab, in what is a typical move for such a recovery programme. MailOnline has contacted representatives for Katie for comment.
The mother-of-five was pictured in the passenger seat of a car driven by her father on her way to The Priory clinic in London on Wednesday afternoon, days after she flipped the BMW near her Sussex home before dawn.
In April, Price mocked her driving ban in a YouTube video by sitting in the driving seat of car and pretending to drive – but noting that she was on her own land
