Katie Price’s fiancé Carl Woods has expressed his support for the star following her arrest this morning on suspicion of drink driving.

The mum-of-five was taken to hospital following a single-vehicle collision near Patridge Green on Tuesday morning, according to The Sun.

Reacting to the news, the 32-year-old shared a statement on Instagram on Tuesday evening, where he called his fiancée ‘a rough diamond’ and gave public reassurance that he would ‘always be here’.

He wrote: ‘Relationships are tested, people test each other – but when you love someone like I love Katie, you enjoy the highs and good times together, and that bond is tested during the low and difficult times together.

‘Katie is a rough diamond. She has her imperfections however they make her perfect to me, she just needs that extra help to be polished.

‘The sunlight will shine through her once again and the sparkles that she brings to everyone will return.

‘I love you Katie 100%. My Dolly, always here, always will be.’

Reality star Katie’s family also released a statement on social media on Tuesday night, expressing ‘concerns’ about her in the wake of this morning’s events.

Part of the statement shared to the former glamour model’s Instagram page on Tuesday read: ‘As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate’s wellbeing and overall mental health. Today our worst fears nearly came true.

‘As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.

‘We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone. We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.’

A South East Ambulance Service spokesman said: ‘I can confirm we were called at approximately 6.30am to reports of an RTC on the B2135 at Partridge Green.

‘One ambulance crew attended the scene and one person was assessed and treated before being taken to hospital.’

Katie is believed to currently be banned from driving, and had just yesterday spoken on Good Morning Britain about how the ban had made it difficult to visit her 18-year-old son Harvey, who is now based in Cheltenham.

She said: ‘He keeps ringing me saying, “Mummy I miss you, I need kisses and cuddles.”

‘So it is quite hard because obviously I don’t get my licence back till December, so I can’t just whizz in the car there, and it’s not close.’
