Katie Price’s mother shed tears as she recalls her daughter asking why she didn’t die in a drinking accident last year.
The mother of five, 43, transferred from prison in December after pleading guilty to driving while intoxicated, using a motor vehicle in public without third-party insurance and driving in when disqualified.
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.
She has since suggested that “traumatic events” led to her crash, but has yet to go into detail about it.
A new BBC documentary on son Harvey’s next steps at university shows her mother’s reaction to last summer’s crash.
Amy, who was diagnosed with incurable idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in 2017, shares her concern with Katie about how her grandchildren might be affected by what happened.
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.”
