Watch: Katie Price open up on drink driving conviction
Katie Price has said there were traumatic events that led up to her crashing her car, drink driving while disqualified in September last year.
The 43-year-old reality star and mother-of-five - who escaped a jail sentence shortly before Christmas after pleading guilty to the driving offences - admitted she is "ashamed" of what happened but asked people not to judge her.
Price told Good Morning Britain: "The events leading up to it were very traumatic and it's been very traumatic afterwards."
She added: "There's reasons why I got in that car, my mental state, when I'm ready to talk about it all I'll talk about it.
"I feel ashamed about it, but it was all traumatic build up to it all and the reasons I'm still dealing with now.
"I think people shouldn't judge people - there's always reasons. I'm seeing a therapist."
Price revealed she had now committed to seeing a therapist every week "forever".
She said, "I am in a very good headspace now."
The model and TV star said she is feeling positive about the new year and hopes to marry fiance Carl Woods in 2022 and have a baby with him.
She said: "This is the year for me - babies, marriage, I want it all. Like I said before, I have found the one with Carl.
"It will be in England, my mum's terminally ill, she can't travel so I would never get married without my mum."
Price began dating Woods in June 2020 and in April last year they announced they were engaged to be married – her seventh engagement.
In August, Essex Police confirmed that an unnamed man had been arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and controlling behaviour following an alleged attack on Price in the early hours.
Price — who has previously spoken about her treatment for cocaine addiction — returned to The Priory rehabilitation clinic following her arrest in September.
The former glamour model - who was declared bankrupt in 2019 - is mother to 19-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke; she shares Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre; and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third husband Kieran Hayler.
