Katie Price’s community service for drink-drive car crash revealed as she works 100 hours after swerving jail

KATIE Price will be sorting clothes in a charity shop and working at an elderly care centre as part of her community service, The Sun can reveal. 

The reality star has been assigned duties including sorting and washing second hand clothes and attending social groups for the elderly as part of her drink-driving sentence. 


Katie has to complete 100 hours of community service over six weeks and starts next week. 

She’ll have to wear a hi-vis jacket on site and will be banned from using her phone or posting to social media while working. 

She also faces additional tasks like clearing wasteland, cleaning graffiti off walls and chewing gum from public paths, and decorating a local community centre. 

But The Sun is told her team are arguing physical tasks would put too much pressure on Katie’s feet, which she broke falling over a wall in Turkey in August 2020. 

Sources also claim Katie is hoping to delay the start date so she can go on holiday with fiance Carl Woods. Katie’s team didn’t reply to a request for comment from The Sun. 

In December, Katie was handed a 16-week jail sentence suspended for 12 months, a two-year driving ban, 100 hours’ unpaid work, 20 sessions of rehabilitation work with probation, and was ordered to pay £213.

The court heard she already owed £7,358 in relation to previous offences.

Katie, 43, admitted drink driving, driving without insurance and driving while banned after flipping her car on the B2135 near Partridge Green, West Sussex, on 28 September. 

Sentencing her, district judge Amanda Kelly said: “You appear to think that you are above the law.

“You have one of the worst driving records I have seen. You have been banned from driving on five occasions.

“The public may be appalled to hear that I can’t send you to jail today. But the law says that when a person has complied with the terms of their release then you have a legitimate expectation not to be sent to prison today, even though you deserve to spend Christmas behind bars.”

On Good Morning Britain this week, Katie outlined her plans for 2022, which include travelling and marrying fiance Carl. 

"This is the year for me – babies, marriage I want it all,” she told GMB’s Susanna Reid. "I've definitely found the one with Carl. We will get married. It'll be in England because my mum is terminally ill and can't travel. I wouldn't want to get married without her there. I am in a very good head space."
