The TV personality has denied being almost twice the legal alcohol limit while driving a pink Range Rover on 10 October last year.

Price is alleged to have had 69 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath.

The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.

Wearing a grey fur coat, blue jeans and black stilettos, Price spoke only to deny the charge and give her name, address and date of birth.

Mr Dean said Price will rely on the defence that “there was no likelihood of driving while the level of alcohol exceeded the proscribed limit”.

She thanked Mr Dean before leaving the court room.

Metropolitan Police said Price had been charged with drink-driving by postal requisition on 10 December and told to appear at Bromley Magistrates Court on Monday 7 January.

The former model, who has five children, split from her third husband Kieran Hayler in 2018.

Price avoided bankruptcy in December after agreeing a plan to pay back what she owes to her creditors.
