Katie Price arrested for drink-driving after 'partying with ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson at birthday party'

The former glamour model was nicked by cops in the early hours of this morning after allegedly crashing her garish pink Range Rover in Woolwich, South East London.

Price was forced to spend the night in a police cell after being found by officers inside the damaged vehicle.

The telly star was given a breath test and arrested at the scene.

She remains in custody this morning.

A Met Police spokesman said: "At approximately 2am British Transport Police officers came across a car showing signs of damage stationary at the roadside in Shooters Hill Road, Woolwich.

"A 40-year-old woman who was inside the car was arrested on suspicion of drink driving. She was taken to a south London police station where she remains."

Before her arrest, she attended a 30th birthday party for her ex partner at the Meze Bar, in Bexleyheath, South East London.

The incident comes following a turbulent year for the star, which has already seen her fall foul of the law over driving offences.

In February, the 40-year-old was banned from driving for six months after being clocked doing 60mph on the 50mph A24 in her £75,000 Land Rover.

The Sun on Sunday revealed in July that police had been alerted to pictures of the star driving two weeks before the end of her ban.

Price later confessed on Instagram, explaining she had been driving son Harvey to hospital. She blamed an “emotional rollercoaster” for her decision to drive while banned.

The Loose Women panellist recently revealed she has been receiving treatment at The Priory after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The telly favourite was also banned from driving in September 2012 after failing to respond to two speeding tickets, arguing that her mum handled her post.

Katie has endured a traumatic year, including her split from husband Kieran Hayler.

She is reportedly putting her £2million home on the market and is flogging belongings due to money woes.

Earlier this year, she found out her mum Amy, 64, was terminally ill with lung disease idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.
