Katie Price to face ANOTHER driving ban as cops seize her Range Rover after being caught without insurance or licence | The Sun

KATIE Price could face another driving ban just weeks after being allowed back on the roads – as cops seized her Range Rover.

The reality star, 45, saw her SUV nabbed by officers after they pulled her over less than ten miles from her home in Sussex.

Mum-of-five Katie was driving with son Harvey, 21, after leaving a hair salon, when she was ordered to stop by an unmarked police car on Friday at around 6pm.

Photos obtained by The Sun show a trio of officers confronting the former glamour model on Sompting Road, in Worthing, Sussex.

Other snaps show the star – wearing a white t-shirt and flip-flops – trudging away from the scene alongside Harvey.

Her 2010 bronze Range Rover was then hauled away by a recovery truck as Katie and Harvey were collected by a friend.

The Sun can reveal police believe Katie was driving without insurance or a valid driving licence.

Her license had previously been medically revoked despite a two-year driving ban only being lifted in April.

A source told The Sun: “Police were there for almost an hour asking her questions.

“Katie wasn’t being aggressive with the officers and ended up just talking to them for a bit, she seemed to understand what was going on and why they had pulled her over.

“After a while another car pulled up, which both Harvey and Katie got in and were driven away.

“The Range Rover was loaded up onto a recovery vehicle about 15 minutes later and driven away."

A Sussex Police spokesperson said: “Officers responded to a report of a motorist driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and driving without insurance at Sompting Road roundabout, Worthing, shortly before 6pm on Friday, July 21.

“A 45-year-old woman was spoken to, and a Range Rover was seized under Section 165(a) of the Road Traffic Act.

“Sussex Police is not able to comment further at this time.”

But last night Katie's sister Sophie told The Sun that Katie had done nothing wrong and was "upset" that police had seized her car.

"The car was insured on Thursday and she showed the police the paperwork and even got the insurance guy on the phone to confirm it," explained Sophie.

"As far as she's aware she is able to drive, she got a letter from her doctor saying that he's comfortable with her driving which she passed on to the DVLA. 

"So she has got insurance, she has got a driving licence and she has been given the nod medically that she can drive, so she doesn't understand what's going on."

Sophie said the police told Katie they would speak to the DVLA on Monday in case there had been a misunderstanding.

She added: "Kate's really upset by this, we're investigating, but it's not fair now, maybe the DVLA haven't updated their records."

The ex-I’m A Celeb campmate was said to have felt “invincible” after her sixth driving ban was reduced in April, leaving her free to get back behind the wheel.

She was barred from the roads for two years after violently flipping her car following a hardcore booze and drugs session in December 2021.

At the time, Judge Amanda Kelly said Price had “one of the worst driving records I have seen”.

Katie was handed a suspended 16-week prison sentence over the brutal smash – but her lawyer managed to reduce the ban after claiming the star’s mental health issues triggered the DUI episode.

Speaking about the incident, Katie previously said: “I could have killed myself.

“I could have killed someone else. I deserved to be punished, enough was enough.

She is understood to have completed a drink-drive rehabilitation course to get back on the road early – but we revealed in May her license had been medically revoked.

It meant Katie would be hauled to court if she was caught driving again, although it is unclear if those conditions – imposed in May – are still in effect.

The latest roadside clash comes after Katie swerved a bankruptcy hearing earlier this month.

Insolvency Judge Paul Greenwood said the case would be listed on the first available date after July 21.

Barrister Darragh Connell told the court: “We are now at the stage were this matter needs to be expeditiously dealt with.”

The star did not attend the hearing and was not represented by lawyers.

It’s thought she has debts of more than £3m – despite a career as one of the UK’s most successful glamour girls, where she reportedly amassed a giant £45m fortune.
