Katie Price Appears In Court To Deny Drink Driving Charge

The star was arrested back in October.

Katie Price has denied being almost twice over the legal alcohol limit as she appeared in court on Monday.

Appearing at Bromley Magistrates Court on Monday, Katie formally denied the charge. 

She spoke only to give her plea and her name, address and date of birth.

Katie has been bailed until 25 February when she will stand trial over the charge at Bexley Magistrates Court.

Police found her in charge of the stationary vehicle at 1.40am at Shooter’s Hill in Greenwich, south-east London, on 10 October. 

It is alleged Katie had 69 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

It has been a turbulent 12 month for the mum-of-five, who spent six months banned from driving, after being clocked doing 60mph in a 50mph zone.

She later confessed that she had turned herself in to police after she got behind the wheel two weeks before her ban was up, explaining that she had taken her son Harvey to hospital.

Katie also recently avoided bankruptcy after agreeing a deal with creditors.
