The reality star decided not to show up at court over the charges

Reality TV star Katie Price has been fined £880 after being found guilty in her absence at Northampton Magistrates’ Court of driving without a licence and without insurance.

The 45-year-old former glamour model drove on August 2, 2023 in Kettering, Northamptonshire, without a valid licence or insurance after being disqualified from driving in 2021.

She had been banned for two years after crashing her BMW in West Sussex in September 2021.

Price was also given a suspended sentence for drink-driving while disqualified and without insurance.

The hearing comes not long after a High Court judge ruled the reality star, who was declared bankrupts in 2019, would lose almost half of the monthly income she receives for the next three years on OnlyFans.

The charge is her latest of a string of driving offences. According to The Sun, Price was today also issued a £352 victim surcharge and £620 court costs - bringing the total fine to £1,852.

After being handed a further eight points to her licence for her latest offence, her total is now up to 11.

Since 2014, Price has been banned from driving six times. In February of this year, the mother-of-five was ordered to pay £398 after being convicted of speeding and driving a vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence.

According to The Daily Mirror, today's hearing saw Barrister Darragh Connell telling the court that Price had agreed to settle the debts but failed to make payments.

The publication also reports that Connell informed a bankruptcy hearing judge that the previous agreement included 36 payments of £12,500, plus a lump sum.

Her last bankruptcy hearing took place in September, and Price accused people of recording and taking screenshots of the virtual proceedings.

She told the judge her "anxiety levels have gone up" before the proceedings were about to start.

The publication reports Price complained: "There are people already on here who shouldn't be on here. It's an awful site that gives me anxiety."

She went on to add: "I'm scared to be on here because of these people on this site. They are awful about me.

"It's a site where they just slag everyone off. I'm petrified. They are already saying I'm going to jail on there."

Having found fame as a model and starring in reality TV shows, Price is still involved with the spotlight and recently made her thoughts clear on this year's Celebrity Big Brother stars.

Having won the show back in 2015, she stated on her podcast, The Katie Price show: "Why the f***’s he in it?” while talking about Gary Goldsmith, uncle of Kate Middleton.

When her sister pointed out Real Housewives of Cheshire star Lauren Simon is also rumoured to be taking part, Price remarked: “Right, anyone can be a celebrity these days.”
