The former glamour model got behind the wheel to drive her children home from Gatwick Airport – despite being banned from the roads for six months

Katie Price could face be facing a spell behind bars as she prepares to be interviewed by police for flouting her driving ban.

The mum-of-five reported herself to police after getting behind the wheel to drive her kids home from Gatwick Airport on July 18.

40-year-old Katie was caught on camera driving Bunny, three, and Jett, four, to the family home in West Sussex, despite being on a six month ban from the road.

‘Cash-strapped’ Katie’s latest brush with the law means she could face up to six months in prison and an unlimited fine or community service of a curfew order.

A spokesperson from Sussex Police confirmed to the Mirror Online: “A woman, who was reported for driving while disqualified, has spoken to police and will attend a police station for interview on an arranged date.”

Katie had been banned from the roads in February after clocking up a speed of more than 60mph in her Land Rover near her home and later failed to provide her driver details.

The Loose Women star already had points stacked on her licence after failing to respond to two speeding tickets in 2012, which left her with a one year ban from the roads.

After her latest flouting of the rules Katie took to Twitter to say she was ‘driving son Harvey to a doctor’s appointment.’

But in photos obtained by The Sun on Sunday, Katie was seen driving her Ford Fiesta with the youngest of her brood in the back seat.

The shamed star took to Twitter to explain her actions and said her ‘head had been all over the place.

She said: “Been on such an emotional rollercoaster the last 6 months and my head has been all over the place, so much so, that I thought my driving ban was up,’ she said.

“After driving to Harvey’s Hospital appointment I have NOW found out that I don’t get my license back until 8th August. With this on my conscience I called the police and reported myself.

“I’ve come such a long way and just want easy life now. I have got out of a hole and am finally happy and looking forward to being my old independent self.

Howard Cox, of the FairFuelUK campaign, told The Sun that Katie’s behaviour ‘warranted a custodial period.’

He said: “With most UK drivers adhering to safe and legal driving, it surpasses belief a minuscule minority such as this serial offender are risking the lives of innocents and even her own family when she gets behind the wheel.

“By continually putting her two selfish fingers up to the authorities, even when banned from driving, she must now warrant a custodial period behind bars or some sort of detention, to learn, once and for all, what she is doing is both anti-social and perilous.”

Mirror Online has contacted Katie’s representatives for comment.
