Katie Price has said she’s in discussions to present a documentary based on her experience of social services, as well as other people’s.

The comments come ahead of Channel 4’s hour-long show Katie Price: Trauma and Me, which is set to air on Thursday evening.

The one-off will explore the former glamour model’s struggles with her mental health, the events that lead to her downward spiral and the steps she’s taking to rebuild her life.

The 44-year-old told programme makers she hit rock bottom when she was arrested and pleaded guilty to drink-driving after crashing in September.

Price was spared jail and was handed a 16-week suspended sentence after the incident on a Sussex road.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk and other press, Price, who has five children Harvey, Junior, Princess, Jett, and Bunny, revealed she had further ambitions in documentary TV and would like to investigate her experiences of social services.

The media personality confirmed she was ‘in talks at the moment’ to create a show based on the government department.

She said: ‘I think social services are disgusting and you read a lot of stuff about social services missing out on things. The system is just wrong’

Price went on to say the show would be based on how her and other people have found navigating social services, adding:  ‘I’ve had my eyes opened to a lot.’

In Katie Price: Trauma and Me, Price explained that much of her trauma stems from her being carjacked and sexually assaulted in South Africa in 2018.

Price, her children and a film crew were ambushed by around six thugs when they were travelling from Johannesburg late at night.

Opening up about the aftermath of the carjacking, Price said: ‘The experience when I was filming with ITV in South Africa, we had no security, if we had security they would have been able to deal with the six guys that jumped us, held me at gunpoint and raped me.’

She added: ‘I hit severe depression a couple of years ago, depression on top of PTSD, I was suicidal, didn’t want to be here. I tried to kill myself.’

Metro.co.uk has approached the Department of Education for comment.

Katie Price: Trauma and Me airs Thursday, September 8 at 9pm on Channel 4.
