‘She could have killed herself or someone else’: Lorraine Kelly urges Katie Price to ‘get help’ and use car crash as ‘a horrible wake up call’ as the star pleads guilty to driving offences
Lorraine Kelly issued stark words of warning to embattled Katie Price about her latest legal issues during Wednesday’s episode of her ITV chat show.
The Scottish host, 61, spoke about the news that Katie was appearing in court later that day after being charged with driving while disqualified and without insurance following a crash near West Grinstead on Tuesday.
Ahead of Katie’s court appearance, where she pleaded guilty to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance, Lorraine was seen speaking to GMB’s Nick Dixon, as he spoke from the scene of the accident in West Sussex.
Lorraine assessed: ‘She was lucky. Shouldn’t have been behind the wheel, she could have killed herself or someone else. I really hope that she does get the help that she clearly, clearly, needs. Maybe this is a wake up call, but what a horrible one.’

Katie was remanded in custody and will appear at Crawley Remand Court this morning after family and friends rallied round her following her arrest.
The mother-of-five could now face jail. She has no driving licence after being disqualified for two years in 2019, and has been banned from the roads six times.
It was claimed that Katie had been up all night partying before the crash. She was taken to hospital but is not thought to have been badly injured.
Katie was also arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of driving under the influence of drink and drugs, but has not been charged with this offence.

Katie has experienced a turbulent year, and was recently seen with bruising to her face after an alleged assault at her home in Essex.

Driving while disqualified can result in a maximum sentence of 26 weeks in prison. It comes as her family expressed fears for her mental health hours after the crash.
They wrote in a statement: ‘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.’
The smash came a day after Katie said being disqualified from driving meant she could not visit her disabled son Harvey at his residential college in Gloucestershire.

She said on Good Morning Britain: ‘Harvey’s in Cheltenham now, he keeps ringing me saying, ‘Mummy I miss you, I need your kisses and cuddles’, so it is quite hard.
‘Because obviously I don’t get my licence back until December, so I can’t just whizz in the car down there and it’s not close.’
