While Katie Price may have narrowly dodged a stint behind bars last month, the star still has to carry out 100 hours of unpaid work following her December sentencing for drink-driving
Katie Price ‘s community service duties have been revealed.
The star – who narrowly dodged a jail stint last month – will apparently be paying back her debt to society in a charity shop and an elderly care centre.
The Sun have reported that the mum-of-five has been tasked with duties such as washing and sorting second hand clothes and partaking in social group gatherings for the elderly as part of her community service sentence.
In December, a judge sentenced the former glamour model to 100 hours of unpaid work (community service), alongside a two-year driving ban and a 16-week suspended jail sentence.
Katie had pleaded guilty in court, after being charged with driving while unfit to drive through drink, using a motor vehicle on a public place without third party insurance and driving while disqualified following a single-car crash in September 2021.
Despite it being her sixth driving offence in a decade, the star luckily avoided spending Christmas in a prison cell – with community service being her punishment instead.
According to The Sun, Katie’s 100 hours of punishment begins next week – with the entire sentence being spread out across six weeks in total.
It’s reported the reality TV star will have to don a hi-vis jacket on site as she gets to work on additional tasks like decorating a local community centre and cleaning chewing gum away from public paths.
The social media savvy star will also apparently be banned from using her phone and posting content online while on duty.
Following Katie’s arrest for crashing her car under the influence of drink and drugs, the star’s concerned family revealed that had been “worried” about the “unwell” model for some time in a now-deleted Instagram post.
During December’s court date, the judge made it clear she believed Katie “deserved to spend Christmas behind bars”, but a legal loophole prevented her from doing so.
Weeks on from her sentencing, Katie has been looking towards a “drama free” 2022 and promised a more positive year ahead.
As she bid farewell to a chaotic 2021 on New Year’s Eve, the star told her Instagram followers that she has lots of “new ventures and ideas” planned for the next 12 months.
Sharing a meme that read “I am about to walk into the greatest year of my life”, Katie promised fans less drama throughout the next 12 months.
“22 is my lucky number so my focus is to make it a drama free and actually have some good luck ,?with all my new ventures and ideas I will smash it,” the media personality wrote in the caption on Friday.
“You have been given a lifeline Katie use it wisely one day at a time …..” one fan commented under her inspirational final post of 2021.
Another added: “Good luck to you @katieprice I’m sure you will smash it.”
