Katie Price’s sister said the former glamor model was “like a cat with nine lives” as she opened up about her reaction to last year’s drinking incident.
Sophie, 31, shared her fear that her sister Katie “may have killed someone or herself” in the incident.
The 43-year-old had his prison sentence changed in December after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated, using a motor vehicle in public without third-party insurance and driving while unqualified.
Katie was sentenced to 16 weeks in prison, 12 months of probation.
After the accident and before her sentencing, Katie stayed at Priory for a month in rehab.
In a new BBC documentary, which airs next Monday and follows Katie’s son Harvey’s next steps at university, Sophie lays out her reaction to Katie’s crash.
She said: “When I saw the police there, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh, here we go again, this time she really did it.’ She was like a cat, too. there are nine lives. I looked and I thought, ‘Oh my God, here we go, it’s going to be a nightmare’.
“When you see Kate, she shows up to the point where you think, ‘Oh, she’s fine, she’s fine,’ and then obviously not. You know, when people have mental health issues. , they’re good at covering it up, and Kate is.
“She’s very good at covering up when she’s not feeling well. She doesn’t talk about her feelings that much. At least she’s in a place where she can now confront them, talk about them. and it’s good that she’s telling us about them now.
“We’ve all made it clear to her that if something’s wrong or you don’t feel right, have a pat on the shoulder and say, ‘Oh, something’s wrong, I feel it. not good’ you just open up and tell us no one will judge her or anything like that.

“But of course it was a shock, it was horrible. It was horrible. I mean, you can imagine – she could have killed someone or she could have killed herself. So, that’s where we’re at.”
Katie then told her mother about what had happened, leaving Amy in tears.
Sitting down with Katie, she said, “With Harvey and his friends at school, they don’t care about anything that goes on outside of that school. While all your other kids, they can be. comments from other kids I think from Harvey’s point of view it won’t affect him.
“All he thinks about is you. For me, I got a phone call at 6:30 a.m. ‘I just had an accident, I’m so sorry Mom’ and it was unbelievable. We can’t believe it.
“And then I was talking to this guy who actually got you out of the car and he said, ‘I don’t know how she survived this.’ When you tell me in then,” Well, why am I still like that. this?’ It was horrible for a mother to hear that. “
Katie replied: “No one can blame me for getting in that car but myself. “But that night when I got in the car, if people had seen me and knew what was going on in my head, I wouldn’t have said to myself, ‘Don’t get in.’ I would have said, ‘No, I just need to go’.
“So I’m lucky nothing happened. I’m lucky. There are consequences that I have to bear [with] from that night until now. So I promised – because I had never done this before – that I would visit my therapist once a week.
“I just need to learn how to cope when these situations come up because I don’t want to destroy myself.”
“And I think as a family, because you’re already so poor I think people have to support and protect you right now,” Amy said. “But can you imagine if anything had happened to you in that accident? How do you think Harvey would have coped?”
Parting in tears, Amy continued: “That’s why I know – for you to do what you did – it must have been something terrible.”
