What did Katie Price say?

Katie explained: “You just have to get on with it. I went to The Priory last year, because I had a lot of things to deal with, and I think speaking to a therapist just helps you prepare for it.

“I say to anyone out there, if you are suffering with mental health, and this pandemic doesn’t help, just talk to someone – if you’re feeling low, talk to someone.”

The host then asked Katie: “What was crunch point for you?”

She answered: “I wanted to commit suicide. I planned it, I did everything… Everything was on top of me, it was a build up.

I wanted to commit suicide. I planned it, I did everything… Everything was on top of me, it was a build up.

“I’m only human, I’m strong but there’s only so much you can take and I could have either committed suicide or got help.”

Thankfully, Katie turned her life around for the sake of her five children.

She continued: “Every time I went to do it I thought, ‘I can’t, I’ve got kids, sort yourself out’, so I asked for help, got help, and I stuck to it.

“I went to The Priory for five weeks and I’m a brand new person now.”
