As she starts 2019 with a court appearance, Katie Price vows to turn things around - including her frosty relationship with ex Peter Andre

She's kicked off the new year with a fresh legal battle after crashing her signature pink Range Rover following a five-day bender in October. Now pals say Katie - who faces drink charging charges in court in the second week of January - has vowed to change her life, after making a promise to her terminally ill mum.

Insiders reveal Katie, 40 is hellbent on a fresh start and is even considering a return to rehab after a turbulent 12 months, which included narrowly avoiding bankruptcy, a bitter split from third husband Kieran Hayler and a shocking cocaine admission following a spate of wild partying.

A source says, "Katie has had the year from hell and it's been particularly distressing for her to see the affect it has had on her mum Amy. After a recent heart-to-heart, Katie promised to get more rehab treatment, including intensive at home therapy to cure her of her addiction issues.

"She thinks that if she can the hostility between them once and for all, it'll show she's back in a good place and that she's not a failure in every area of her life.
