Katie Price has enjoyed a day out with her son Harvey and fiancé Carl Woods, a month after checking into rehab.

The 43-year-old reality star and mother-of-five has been seeking treatment at The Priory clinic after she crashed her car in the early hours of the morning while serving a driving ban.

She was charged for driving while disqualified on 29 September.

Price returned to social media for the first time since the crash to share a picture of herself having lunch with 19-year-old Harvey and 32-year-old car dealer Woods.

She also posted a picture of herself visiting her mother Amy Price – who is undergoing treatment for lung condition idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) – captioned: "Home is where Mum is."

Following her arrest Price's family released a statement saying: "As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate's wellbeing and overall mental health. Today our worst fears nearly came true.

"As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.

"We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone. We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.

"It takes great strength for one to acknowledge they need help, we hope the door is now open for Kate to learn to love herself and to be happy within. Mental illness is not a personal failure."

Price – who has previously spoken about her treatment for cocaine addiction – returned to rehab at The Priory at the beginning of 2020.

The former glamour model – who was declared bankrupt in 2019 – is mother to 19-year-old son Harvey, whose father is footballer Dwight Yorke; teenagers Junior, 16, and Princess, 14, with first husband Peter Andre; and Jett, eight, and Bunny, seven, with third husband Kieran Hayler.

She is now registered as disabled after breaking both her feet when she fell from a 25ft wall in Turkey while on holiday last summer.

Price began dating Woods in June 2020 and in April this year they announced they were engaged to be married – her seventh engagement.

He said after her arrest: "Relationships are tested, people test each other – but when you love someone like I love Katie, you enjoy the highs and good times together, and that bond is tested during the low and difficult times together.

"Katie is a tough diamond. She has her imperfections however they make her just perfect to me, she just needs that extra help to be polished."

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.
