Katie Price ‘to do Dry January in bid to get her mind right’ after avoiding jail

Katie Price is reportedly set to ditch booze for Dry January after being handed a suspended prison sentence at Crawley Magistrates Court on Wednesday 15 December.

The 43 year old was given a 16 week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months after pleading guilty to drink driving, driving whilst disqualified and driving without insurance following a crash near her home in Sussex in September.

Now, the former glamour model is said to be making the most of getting a "second chance" as she's planning on giving up alcohol for a month.

“Katie knows she is lucky not to be starting 2022 behind bars — she has got a second chance and plans to make the most of it," a source told The Sun.

The insider went on: “Usually, Katie would have a few drinks over Christmas but she has knocked that on the head and will be doing Dry January to get her mind and body right.

"Her family are pleased because they just want to see Katie getting back to her best.”

OK! Online has approached Katie's representatives for further comment.

Following her sentencing, Katie took to her Instagram stories to share a statement where she vowed to work on her mental health.

On 16 December, she told her 2.6million fans: "I would like to thank my family – my children, my mum, dad, sister, brother, my partner Carl, Leigh, and my friends who have supported me throughout these past few months."

She went on to explain that she understands the dangerous situation she was in as she wrote: "It's been a really difficult time and I'm incredibly sorry for my actions – I'm sincerely grateful nobody was hurt – I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family, but to my own as well."

Katie then pledged to work on her mental health as she continued: "I'm now spending time getting better – mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.

"This will be a long process for myself and something I'll continue to work on for the rest of my life.

"It's also something I can work with my family so we can progress on a new chapter together.
