Lorraine Kelly says Katie Price should never have been behind the wheel, but hopes the crash “needs a wake up call”.
The star, who has been banned from driving, was taken to hospital yesterday morning after his horrific smash in Horsham, West Sussex.
Police today charged him with driving, disqualifying him – which could face jail time.
Speaking on her ITV show This Morning, Lorraine said: “Her family is really worried about her.
“But she absolutely shouldn’t have been behind the wheel. She was lucky, but she shouldn’t have gotten behind the wheel.
“She could have killed herself or someone else.
“I hope she gets the help she so clearly needs.
“Maybe it’s a wake up call, but really awful.”
The 43-year-old reality star was arrested in the early hours of yesterday for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol.
Price drove his 4×4 BMW down a country lane near his home and was told “in a bad way” by sources close to him.
Sussex Police have now charged five children with driving without insurance and being disqualified for driving.
He has been remanded in custody and will be produced in Crowley remand court later today.
A spokeswoman for the force said: “Katie Price, 43, of Worthing Road, Horsham, was charged with using a motor vehicle in a public place without third party insurance and driving while disqualified.
“He has been remanded in custody and will be produced in Crowley remand court on Wednesday (29 September).”
