The cash-strapped star, 40, was seen back behind the wheel of a Range Rover Sport – just hours after her arrest for drink-driving.
Katie, who wore a pink tracksuit, was leaving boyfriend Kris Boyson's house after the pair recently rekindled their romance.
The Sun Online exclusively revealed that Katie and Kris had rekindled their romance after he picked her up from the police station following her arrest on suspicion of drink-driving.
Katie was arrested in the early hours of yesterday after attending Kris’s boozy 30th birthday at The Meze in Bexleyheath.
She reportedly turned up unexpectedly at the party and when she left, was arrested on suspicion of drink-driving after crashing her pink Range Rover into a parked car and a bush. The star spent 13 hours in police custody before Kris turned up to take her home.
When you don't need to wear a seat belt
If you're caught not wearing a seatbelt when you're supposed to, you can be fined up to £500 – a huge sum if you're staring bankruptcy in the face
However, there are a few instances where not wearing a seatbeat is just fine… however, it would seem none of them apply to Katie
- a driver who is reversing, or supervising a learner driver who is reversing
- in a vehicle being used for police, fire and rescue services
- a passenger in a trade vehicle and you’re investigating a fault
- driving a goods vehicle on deliveries that is travelling no more than 50 metres between stops
- a licensed taxi driver who is ‘plying for hire’ or carrying passengers
You can also be exempt from wearing a seatbelt on medical grounds. But, given you have to wear one whether you're disabled or pregnant – it's doubtful this applies to Katie.
Drivers caught without a seat belt face on-the-spot fines of £100. If prosecuted, the maximum fine is £500.
It’s been reported that Katie had a row with her toyboy boyfriend Alex Adderson, 25, before going to the party.
She also fell off the wagon five days before her arrest after downing strawberry daiquiris at Alex’s house.
Friends of the Kris and Katie say they’ve got back together and the star "now knows how good he is for her".
The friend said: “Kris stayed by her side the whole time and even sat waiting in the police station all night.
"He kept hold of her belongings for her and arranged to give her a lift home too.
“He’s been a real rock to her, even when she dumped him and started dating Alex [Adderson].
“Kris had been texting her to see if she was doing ok, they were in constant contact even when she was dating someone else.
And he was even texting her at the start of his birthday party.
“He’d jump at the chance to be back with her, even though his friends can’t abide her.
“Now he’s saying that the only way she can make a full recovery is by having him full-time back in her life.”
Katie's rep insists that she's "not back together with Kris".
Katie is currently getting treatment for PTSD at The Priory.
