ED! has contacted representatives for Katie for comment.

Katie is currently seeking treatment in rehab for post-traumatic stress disorder.

She sought help after her own difficult year that included mum Amy being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition, her marriage to third husband Kieran breaking down, and a romance with boyfriend Kris ending.

A 40-year-old woman who was inside the car was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

Neither Katie nor Kris has spoken out about today's reports.

Katie went public with their relationship in June, saying Kris "ticked all the boxes", but by August, the romance had fizzled out and Katie was pictured getting cosy with another man on holiday in Majorca.

Kris announced their split via Instagram Stories, telling fans: "This wasn't an easy decision for me to make, however @officialkatieprice and I are no longer together!

"It's just clear we both want different things. Who knows what the future will bring but I wish her all the best!!"
