The 43-year-old was remanded in custody and will appear at Crawley Remand Court on Wednesday morning following her arrest.

Price, who is banned from driving, is accused of flipping her BMW on a country road at 6.20am near West Grinstead.

She was taken to hospital after the crash but is not believed to have been seriously injured.

"As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs. We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone.

"We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister."
