KATIE Price’s children Princess and Junior have shared a message of support for their mum after her "drink-drive" crash.
The 43-year-old is facing possible jail time after rolling her BMW in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Her family admit their "worst fears nearly came true" as she was rushed to hospital after the smash.
After posting a statement on Katie's Instagram telling fans the star is "getting help", her daughter Princess commented: "Love you mum, so much."
Junior – who she shares with ex-husband Peter Andre – added: "Love you mum."
A dramatic picture showed Katie's BMW on its side – with the mangled front crashed into some bushes.
Police are investigating reports she was on an "all-night binge" and may have even been driving to get more drugs when she crashed.
Sources told The Sun she had "stayed up all night partying with a few close friends".
Her family say they are "concerned and worried" about her mental health.
Their statement read: "This message has been written by Katie's family.
"As a family we have for some time been concerned about Kate's wellbeing and overall mental health.
"Today our worst fears nearly came true. As a family we have been and will continue to help Kate get the help she needs.
"We hope that she will realise that she cannot battle her issues alone.
"We would kindly ask that the media and wider public give Kate the time and space she needs to seek the necessary treatment, so that she can hopefully return to the Kate we know and love as a mother, daughter and sister.
"We are concerned and worried about her deeply, we know she lives her life publicly and to many she is fair game, but as a family we hope she can find her path privately moving forward during this very difficult period in her life.
"We are not asking for sympathy – just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell.
"We take great comfort in reading the messages of support and love for Kate that we will pass on to her, in the hope that these positive messages will help spur her on.
"It takes great strength for one to acknowledge they need help, we hope the door is now open for Kate to learn to love herself and to be happy within.
"Mental illness is not a personal failure.
"The Price Family xxx."
The Sun exclusively revealed that the 43-year-old star had been rushed to hospital after the accident, which could see her face jail time.
Police at the scene arrested Katie, who is understood to be banned from driving, for alleged drink-driving – and she may now face jail time if charged and found guilty.
During an appearance on yesterday's Good Morning Britain, the star appeared to confirm that she is still serving a driving ban, and won't get her licence back until later this year.
She had expected to get her driving licence back in April, but was banned for a further six months following an admin bungle.
A Sussex Police spokeswoman confirmed: "Police responded to reports of a single-vehicle collision on the B2135 near Partridge Green around 6.20am on Tuesday (September 28).
"A woman, 43, was arrested on suspicion of driving while above the legal limit for alcohol and drugs, and has been taken to hospital to be checked over.
"The road was blocked temporarily while recovery of the vehicle was arranged."
The mum-of-five served an 18-month disqualification after withholding the identity of the driver of her pink Range Rover following a crash.
