She's previously been open about her suicidal thoughts, and now Katie Price has once again opened up about wanting to take her own life after admitting herself into The Priory.

The mum-of-five, who said she was 'like a performing seal' on Loose Women, checked herself into the famous clinic in 2019 after dealing with "severe trauma".

Opening up on the podcast Changes With Annie Macmanus, the 42 year old candidly explained: "My sessions were focused on severe trauma. Everything I've built up.

"I wanted to commit suicide, I planned it all. The only thing that stopped me were my kids' faces, overtime I saw their faces in my vision and I didn't do it," Katie divulged.

"I kept saying, 'I'm fine, I don't need help', when really inside, I was like, 'I do need help'. I didn't want to admit defeat.

The former glamour model previously opened up about her mental health struggles on BBC Northern Island's Nolan Live in February.

Katie was asked by host Stephen Nolan how she manages to stay strong through everything that life throws at her.

She responded: "You just have to get on with it. I went to The Priory last year, because I had a lot of things to deal with, and I think speaking to a therapist just helps you prepare for it.

"I say to anyone out there, if you aree suffering with mental health, and this pandemic doesn't help, just talk to someone – if you're feeling low, talk to someone."

Stephen then asked Katie: "Do you mind opening up about your mental health? What was crunch point for you."

The reality star expressed: "I wanted to commit suicide. I planned it, did everything… everything was on top of me, it was a build up.

"I'm only human, I'm strong but there's only so much you can take and I could have either committed suicide or got help."

Despite her overwhelming thoughts, Katie, who addressed her pregnancy rumours, said it was her children who kept her going.

"Every time I went to do it I thought: 'I can't, I've got kids, sort yourself out', so I asked for help, got help, and I stuck to it," she bravely shared.
