Was Katie Price kidnapped?

Katie hasn’t been kidnapped, however, she has had five threats made against her.

Back in 2016, mechanics found a tracking device on her car after which led to police uncovering a £1 million kidnap plot targeting her children Harvey, Junior, Princess, Jett and Bunny.

“I’ve been through the ordeal of kidnapping threats a few times before and it is terrifying,” Katie said at the time.

“You can buy all the security you want. I’ve got panic buttons and everything like that.

“But if something did happen, by the time the police would be able to get to my house, they would have already got me.”

It’s understood that Katie heavily increased her security around Christmas time when more threats when her made.

When was Katie held at gunpoint?

Katie and her kids Junior and Princess (who she shares with ex-husband Peter Andre) were held at gunpoint in 2018

They were in South Africa filming her reality show My Crazy Life at the time, travelling from Johannesburg to Swaziland.

A gang targeted the family after they got out of their vehicle for a quick toilet break.

The attackers held the family at gunpoint and injured one of Katie’s team when he tried to stand up to them.

She feared for her children’s lives as the thugs ransacked her vehicle.

But after stealing computers, cameras and jewellery, totalling to tens of thousands of pounds, the gang fled the scene.

Discussing the traumatic ordeal on Celebrity SAS, Katie revealed this was one of the reasons she recently checked into the Priory.
