Model Katie Price has denied texting at the wheel of her pink car – despite being pictured handling a phone.
Motorist Daniel Trussler was stunned after spotting Katie Price driving her Range Rover in bad weather – and appearing to use her mobile phone at the same time.
Daniel was a passenger in a friend’s car when he saw the famous glamour model behind the wheel of her distinctive Range Rover.
He took a picture which appears to show Price, 34, driving her vehicle in heavy rain while holding the mobile handset in her hands – and not looking at the road.
A spokesperson for the glamour model did not deny that Price was handling the phone.
She said: “She was not texting.”
Builder Daniel, 32, of Midhurst, West Sussex, took the picture in the clockwise lane near Junction 12 of the M25 at 12.25pm on Saturday, December 22.
He said Katie, sat next a a male passenger, was using the phone to send a text message.
Daniel said: “I was on my way to watch some football with my friends.
“We were on the outside lane of the M25, south of Heathrow, and she was on the inside lane driving at about 30mph while talking to her friend and texting on her phone.
“We were quite shocked as the road was busy and the weather bad. She stuck out quite a bit with the number plate KP11HOT and a bright pink Range Rover.”
Motorists caught using a hand-held mobile phone while driving can get an automatic fixed penalty notice – typically three penalty points and a £60 fine.
In August the reality star was handed a 12-month driving ban after picking up two speeding tickets while already having six-points on her license.
She had the ban suspended, claiming it was her toyboy-ex Leandro Penna had been driving at the time.
The ban was quashed last December following a successful appeal.
