Going to prison? Katie Price tells friends jailtime would make a good chapter in her book – ahead of sentencing for drink-driving following a crash near her home
- Katie Price told friends being jailed for drink-driving would be ‘interesting chapter’ in an autobiography

- Last week she admitted drink-driving and driving without insurance and while disqualified
Katie Price has told friends that being jailed for drink-driving wouldn’t be the end of the world – as it would make ‘an interesting chapter’ in a future autobiography.
The troubled 43-year-old model is currently in rehab at the £900-per-night Priory hospital in South-West London after last week admitting drink-driving and driving without insurance and while disqualified following a crash near her home in Horsham, West Sussex.
The mother-of-five has been warned she faces the possibility of a prison sentence but, according to a friend, is undaunted.

‘Most people would be petrified of going to prison, but Katie actually has spoken about it and thinks it would make for a good chapter in her book when she writes the next one,’ the pal told The Mail on Sunday.
‘I guess it would be interesting and colourful, something that would sell books and make her money. We all know she is a shrewd businesswoman but wanting to go to prison is taking things a little bit far.’
The three-times-married celebrity, who has already written six autobiographies, crashed her BMW early last Tuesday and told police officers who arrived at the scene: ‘I took drugs, I should not be driving.’
She pleaded guilty to all charges at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Thursday. She will be sentenced on December 15. Chair of the bench Julie Hutton warned her: ‘We regularly send people to prison for driving while disqualified.’

The Mail on Sunday can also reveal that a programme made with Channel 4 about the renovation of her home may now be dropped. Sources suggested the network spent about £80,000 on the show, but bosses feel Ms Price, who was declared bankrupt in 2019, may have become too toxic.
It was reported last week that the BBC has dropped an upcoming second documentary about the model and Harvey, her teenage son who has septo-optic dysplasia – a genetic disorder affecting his eyesight – autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause learning and behavioural problems.
The first film, Katie Price: Harvey And Me, garnered a National TV Awards nomination.
The former glamour model, who once used the name Jordan, is also due to release a book called Harvey And Me: A Mother’s Love, telling the story of bringing up Harvey, the son of former footballer Dwight Yorke.
