Channel 4 confirmed the release of Katie Price’s new documentary Mucky Mansion will go ahead as planned on Wednesday, despite her recent arrest and subsequent threat of time behind bars.
The former glamour model, 43, was seen in new promotional imagery released on Monday, with troubled Katie posing in white work overalls and a personalised pink hard hat stamped with her initials.
It follows reports that the media personality’s phone is being scoured by police to see if she breached a restraining order – as she avoided being jailed today after paying £7,350 driving fines at the last minute.

Posing in front of a workbench piled with tools, the mother-of-five waved around a paint roller and teamed her DIY-ready get-up with a pair of bright pink trainers.
She was also seen standing outside the enormous property in one of the documentary’s promotional shots, which follows Katie trying to repair the house which has been in disarray, leading to it being dubbed the ‘mucky mansion’.
Katie was arrested on Friday on suspicion of breaching her restraining order after she allegedly branded her ex-husband Kieran Hayler’s fiancée Michelle Penticost a ‘gutter sl*g’ in ‘abusive messages’.

She was released after a 12-hour interrogation, though not before officers confiscated her phone, which they are now examining for evidence.
Price, who was handed a five-year restraining order forbidding her from contacting Ms Penticost directly or indirectly in 2019 after hurling a ‘tirade of abuse’ at her, could now face up to five years in prison if she is charged and found guilty.
She also dodged a potential jail term today after £7,300 fines she owed for driving offences were paid. Price had been listed to appear at Crawley Magistrates’ Court on Monday over non-payment of £7,358 in fines dating back to January 2019.

However, on Monday morning court staff confirmed the fines had been paid and Price was no longer expected in court. She had been issued with a court summons after magistrates heard she had failed to pay back a single penny of her fines.
The Loose Women star was even facing a possible jail sentence for non-payment before paying the fines in full. Price has been banned from driving seven times in the last 10 years for speeding, drink driving and driving while disqualified.
At her last court hearing the mother-of-five was warned she faced an immediate prison sentence if she stepped out of line. District Judge Amanda Kelly said: ‘If you put a foot wrong in the weeks and months ahead then you will certainly go to prison.’
At the hearing her solicitor, Joe Harrington, Price’s finances were so ‘disorganised and chaotic’ that a £7.50 toll for using the Dart Crossing had escalated into a £1,400 debt due to her failure to deal with it.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, the media personality shared a clip for the new documentary in which she was seen accidently smashing the roof of her house as she tried to help with renovations.
The clip shared on Katie’s Instagram showed the star on a crane as she was lifted up to the roof of the Sussex house, which she originally bought for £2million in 2014.
As a builder handed her the chimney pot, Katie exclaimed ‘that’s heavy’.
Despite warnings to carefully lift the piece with two hands over the side of the crane, Katie promptly drops the pot, shattering a drainpipe and dislodging tiles.
Katie yells: ‘S***!’ as she explained in the video caption: ‘I have to admit I can sometimes be a bit clumsy – Steve wasn’t too happy when I realised how heavy the chimney pot was!’

It follows earlier January reports that Katie was horrified to learn her ‘mucky mansion’ has lost £1million in value while making the new Channel 4 documentary.
The Sun has said she was ‘in a bad state’ when she learnt the news of the house – after purchasing the property from former Cabinet Office Minister Francis Maude in 2014 for £2million.
A source told the publication: ‘Katie knew it was in a bad state, but when she found out it’s now worth less than a million – half its original value – while filming the new show, it was a real shock.

‘She’s going to do everything she can to get it back to its former glory and make it worth something again. It’s a real disaster for her.’
MailOnline contacted Katie’s representatives for comment at the time.
Back in 2020, intruders entered her home and flooded the upstairs, causing thousands of pounds worth of damage to her new kitchen.
The house was also ransacked by thieves last year, who stole a pile of personal photographs.
Katie’s son Jett’s room later went up in flames and was subsequently damaged by the fire.

The former glamour model also shared that fly tippers dumped rubbish on her property.
What’s more, Katie was reportedly recently met with a repossession order for the home.
She failed to repay a debt of more than £500,000 on the property in West Sussex which she once said was ‘haunted’, The Sun claimed.

A Land Registry search for the property revealed to the newspaper that owner Katie owes money to both Kensington Mortgage Company and solicitor Archerfield Partners LLP.
A source told the publication: ‘Katie has failed to pay back the money she owes and her mortgage company had no option but to issue this order.
‘She was due to appear at a repossession hearing this week, but it will now most likely be rescheduled for a date in January.
‘This is a new low for Katie in what has been a difficult year.’
