Katie Price has been banned from driving for two years.

The 41-year-old former glamour model was slapped with six penalty points, a hefty fine and the 24-month ban at Bexley Magistrates Court in Bexleyheath on Thursday after she refused to tell police who was behind the wheel of her bright pink Range Rover, worth £130,000, when it crashed in October last year.

The reality TV star’s lawyer had asked the court to adjourn the case as she was out of the country, but District Judge Robert Hunter refused the request.

He said: “This hearing has already been adjourned once. This date was agreed by both sides. I am not inclined to further adjourn this matter.”

Katie – who already had six points on her licence before the crash last year – was ordered to pay a £440 fine, a £44 surcharge and £100 in costs.
