In February, Katie was banned from driving for six months after being clocked doing 60mph on the 50mph A24. Then in July she was photographed getting behind the wheel of her car while still banned from the road.
She took to Instagram, explaining she had been driving son Harvey to hospital and blamed an ’emotional roller coaster’ for her decision to drive two weeks before her ban ended.
She was summoned to talk with police, but reportedly kept putting off the meeting. It is not known if she has made a statement to police over the error.
Six years ago the mum of five was banned from driving after failing to respond to two speeding tickets, arguing that her mum handled her post.

Katie has been no stranger to further incidents on the road, recently: she crashed her £63,000 Ranger Rover while allegedly on her mobile phone – just two weeks before she was arrested for drink driving.
Last month, marketing executive Katie Pugh, 23, told MailOnline that the troubled star – who has been facing a bankruptcy battle – rear-ended her Mercedes as they were stuck in traffic on the A3 in Roehampton, Surrey.
Pugh said she looked up into her rear-view mirror and noticed Katie appearing to be looking at her phone moments before the collision around 5.30PM on September 26.
The crash, which was reported to the police, took place just days before Katie was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

Pugh said: ‘I was sat in a queue of traffic looking in the mirror and I saw the car behind going faster, not slowing down. The driver was hunched over, clearly looking at their phone and not looking at the road.
‘I remember thinking that person isn’t going to stop and then there was a bang and she had accelerated right into the back of me. I was in shock and upset because I’d never been in a crash before.’
Pugh got out of her car to inspect the damage and recognised the driver as the former glamour model.
‘She was quite dismissive and didn’t get out of her car,’ she said. ‘She shouted, “oh, don’t worry about it, it’s fine”. ‘I said, “it’s not fine. Look at the damage to my car!”‘

Woes: Back in February, the mother-of-five was banned from driving for six months after doing 60mph on the 50mph A24 and she handed herself into police in July for driving while on a six-month ban
The reality star is then said to have told shaken Pugh to drive to a garage 200 feet up the road to exchange details.
‘Again Katie wouldn’t get out of the car,’ Pugh added. ‘I was looking at the damage to my car as there was a dent in my back bumper and scratches to the paintwork.
‘But she said, “Can you hurry up because I am in a hurry”. She gave me her phone number and said she would take care of it for me.’
Days after this, the former glamour model spent a night in the cells after being found by police in her garish pink £75,000 Range Rover in Woolwich, East London, and arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

She had allegedly been partying with ex-boyfriend Kris Boyson helping him celebrate his 30th birthday when her car ended up hitting a parked car.
Price took a roadside breath test and was taken to Plumstead Police station where she was released after a night in the cells.
She was then photographed driving her car without wearing her seatbelt, just 36 hours after her drink driving arrest – an infraction that carries a £100 fine.
The incidents come after a turbulent year for the star which has seen her marriage end, check into the Priory for PTSD and also stave of bankruptcy proceedings.
She is trying to sell her £2m Sussex house and has been selling off farm machinery on her estate.

A source told the Mirror: ‘Since Katie’s life started to spiral out of control at the beginning of this year, she hasn’t been on mainstream British TV.
Her last appearance on Loose Women was in January and she hasn’t been asked back. Her cocaine admission hasn’t gone down well either. It’s not a good look, especially for someone who was a regular feature on ITV’.
