Katie Price's ex Kris Boyson says that he hopes her arrest last week will serve as a "blessing in disguise".

Katie Price's ex-fiancé Kris Boyson has said that he hopes her admission to The Priory last week will be a "blessing in disguise".

The former glamour model went into rehab after crashing her car while under the influence of drink and drugs on Tuesday morning and is now facing a possible jail term when she returns to court in December.

Boyson, who dated Price for around 18 months, told The Sun: "Kate has a great family around her that will hopefully help her with this.

"I just hope this can be the turning point for her now to change her life.

"The crash was like a blessing in disguise because now hopefully she can get the help she needs."

He added: "Katie has been open before about how she self-medicates.

"It seems this is her coping mechanism for whatever is going on in her life. I just hope now for her sake, her kids' sake and her family's sake that she gets through this and comes back out on top."

Price is expected to spend around a month at The Priory, after which she is likely to move in with her mother as she recovers.
