Former glamour and her kids were held at gunpoint

Katie Price has shed more light on the terrifying attack she endured in South Africa two years ago while filming her reality show.

The mum-of-five, 41, has previously spoken about the ordeal, in which she and two of her children, Junior and Princess, were held at gunpoint while travelling from Johannesburg to Swaziland.

But, in an interview to promote her appearance on this year’s Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins, she revealed that she was sexually assaulted during the incident.

Armed attack

Katie was in South Africa filming My Crazy Life in 2018 when the group she was travelling with were held up by a group of armed men.

Explaining why she later checked into The Priory with symptoms of PTSD, she told The Sun on Sunday: “The reason I went there was because I got held at gunpoint and sexually assaulted. Six men attacked us after we stopped because my son Junior needed a wee.

I grabbed a pillow and launched myself in front of the kids, trying to protect them, waiting for a bullet to hit me.

“It was like something from a horror film. This big man in an adidas hoody was shouting in my face, swearing and demanding I give him everything. And he was touching me down below.

“I grabbed a pillow and launched myself in front of the kids, trying to protect them, waiting for a bullet to hit me. I thought I was going to die. Police said it was a miracle they didn’t kill us.”
