Katie Price gets parking ticket after returning behind the wheel following driving ban

Katie Price has had an eventful return to driving as she has had a parking ticket. She has also reportedly been pulled over by police due to driving without a licence and insurance.

The star was spotted returning to her state-of-the-art range rover on Friday, July 21, to see a parking ticket on the windscreen. The 45-year-old was wearing an all-pink outfit, including a pair of pink fluffy slippers for her outing.

It is also reported that on Friday afternoon, she was pulled over by the police as they responded to reports she was driving without a licence and insurance. The mum-of-five is said to have been questioned by officers at the roadside for an hour before having her range rover seized by officers.

This incident is said to have taken place at around 6pm on Friday on the Sompting Road roundabout in Worthing, West Sussex. Sussex Police have issued a statement to The Mirror, in response to the reports.

They have 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 6 pm 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."

OK! has contacted a representative for Katie for comment on this story.

The former I'm A Celebrity star has only just been able to drive again after she was given a two-year driving ban in 2021. She gave a guilty plea in 2021 for drink-driving.

Since she got her licence back, she has been complaining about the price of her car insurance due to her driving history.

Just last week she said: "No insurance company will insure me on a new car or anything flash, nothing."

Before she added: "The quotes I had for my insurance on a normal car that is £15k was £73k, one was £53k and one was £33k, and they were my quotes because no one else would insure me because of who I am."

She then argued her point, saying: "It’s discrimination because if someone else had the same as me and they had a normal job, they wouldn’t charge that much, it’s way more than the car."

Also, last week she told the Where There’s A Will, There’s A Wake podcast that she will die in a car accident one day. Katie said: "I’ve always predicted I'd die in a car crash, I've always said that.

"The amount of near-death experiences and car crashes I've had, in the car. I've always come out without a scratch on me."
