Katie Price risks MORE legal drama after posting 'illegal' video from inside court on social media

The clip on a social media account apparently showed photographers and press members gathered outside Crawley Magistrates Court.

It appears to have been filmed from a court window after she was given a three-month driving ban and fined.

She added the words "is this necessary" to the short video – which she published on her social media story.

It is against the law to take photographs inside a court building under the Criminal Justice Act 1925.

Anyone found guilty of such an offence can be fined up to £1,000.


The 40-year-old admitted driving while disqualified and without insurance while with two of her children after breaching a ban for speeding.

It comes just two days after she denied being drunk at the wheel of her £75k pink Range Rover when it crashed in Woolwich, South East London, in October last year.

She was given a £1,295 total fine and banned from driving for three months today – and will stand trial next month for the alleged drink-drive offence.

Price, who narrowly escaped bankruptcy last year, will have to pay the fine in 14 days after telling the court she was unable to cough up today.

The former glamour model's misery began when she was disqualified for six months in February last year after she was clocked doing 60mph near her home in West Sussex.


But The Sun revealed pictures showing Price behind the wheel two weeks before the ban had expired – and she later blamed an “emotional rollercoaster” for the disastrous chain of events.

She pleaded guilty at Crawley Magistrates Court today to driving while disqualified and using a motor vehicle on a road without third party insurance on July 25.

The reality star, who was driven to court this morning in a black Mercedes, was given the minimum ban available and will have to pay a £1,100 fine plus £100 victim surcharge and £85 costs.

Her lawyer told magistrates she mistakenly believed the ban had been imposed from an earlier hearing in January – which meant it would have ended in early July, before she got behind the wheel.

But she had not contacted the DVLA about reinstating her driving licence because she was "not the best" at paperwork, he told the court.

Wearing a cape with fur trim and matching cossack-style hat, Price hid behind large sunglasses as she made her way in for the hearing.
