Katie Price has been handed a 16-week suspended jail sentence for drink-driving while disqualified and without insurance following a crash.
The former glamour model, 43, was also banned from driving for two years.
The collision happened near her home in Sussex on the B2135 near Partridge Green on September 28.
She was driving to visit a nearby friend when the crash occurred at around 6.20am, Crawley Magistrates’ Court heard previously.
What Katie Price told police after the crash
Following the collision, she told police: “I took drugs, I should not be driving, I admit it all”.
Price was arrested at the scene and taken to hospital.
The court heard a drugs wipe gave a positive reading for cocaine and a roadside breath test was positive for alcohol.
An image shared by police from the scene showed a car flipped on its side.
Price admitted the offences at a previous hearing at the same court on September 29.
At that hearing, her sentencing was adjourned on the condition that she have treatment at the Priory Centre, not commit any further offences, and be banned from driving in the interim.
