Responding to trolls who accused her of making up her traumatic stories, she told Steph, “I can’t make kidnapping threats, you can’t make these situations up, they’re events. Facts. These are real horrible things.

‘I’m not making this up. Everyone knows me, I’ve been called a “liar” so many times and the truth always comes out. I’m not here for sympathy.

“It was horrible to be held at gunpoint. It was horrible. It was three years ago.’

Elsewhere in the interview, she opened up about her battle with mental health that contributed to her drunk driving accident in her BMW last September.

She explained, “If I was happier, I wouldn’t do something stupid. Tonight. I’m not even a heavy drinker. I received a phone call which I did not like and I got into the car.

It comes after earlier this week Katie revealed she had attempted suicide after suffering ‘anxiety, depression and major trauma’ following her horrific carjacking in 2018.

The reality star admitted she had hit rock bottom after being raped at gunpoint during the ordeal and tried to hang herself, but after passing out she ‘saw the faces of her children” and realized that she “never wanted this to happen again”.

Speaking during the documentary, which airs on Thursday, Katie revealed she nearly took her own life after hitting rock bottom.

She said: ‘I suffer from anxiety, depression and major trauma and have tried to kill myself. I tried to hang myself. I knocked myself out. I had black eyes, bruises around my neck, I didn’t want to be here.

“But all I saw were the faces of the children and I never want that to happen again.

‘It was a nightmare. I gave nothing if I lived or died. I have struggled with my mental health for some time.

Katie is mother to sons Harvey, 20, Junior, 17 and Jett, nine, and daughters Princess, 15, and Bunny, eight.

In the documentary, which was filmed following her car accident in September 2021, Katie also admitted that the accident ultimately helped her realize she needed help, and she signed up in rehab.

She said: “Getting in the car was a terrible mistake for which I am so sorry. It was a great example of me being triggered and not knowing how to handle it, an example of me spiraling out of control because I needed help.

The reality star also said she would likely need therapy “for the rest of her life” after being diagnosed with PTSD.

Ahead of the documentary, Katie revealed she was raped in a horrific carjacking in South Africa in 2018.

She told MailOnline: “The experience when I was filming with ITV in South Africa, we had no security, if we had security they could have dealt with the six guys who jumped on us, me held at gunpoint and raped me.”

Katie was thrown from the vehicle by the assailants, while traveling from Johannesburg to Swaziland in two minivans with the production crew.

The vehicles were ransacked with laptops, iPads, passports, cash and jewelery – but the thieves left behind a fortune in camera gear that the crew had stored on board. The attackers were never apprehended.

Katie first spoke about her heartbreaking experience during an episode of Channel 4’s SAS: Celebrity Who Dares Wins in 2020, where she said: “The police said it was a miracle they didn’t get us have not killed.”

During her new Channel 4 show, she candidly revealed, “I had severe depression a few years ago, depression on top of PTSD, I was suicidal, I didn’t want to be here. I tried to kill myself.

“I got knocked out and had black eyes. I had bruises around my neck. I woke up. I didn’t want to be here.

Her stints at The Priory rehab clinic included dealing with her post-traumatic stress disorder, as she also added that through therapy she learned to deal with her past and recognize what triggers it.

Katie detailed: “I had my eyes opened pretty much. When you go to the Priory, people assume it must be to drink or do drugs. I have never been to the Priory for alcohol, drugs or addiction. I was at the priory for post-traumatic rehabilitation for PTSD.

She continued, “Because of what people believe, it affects me. There’s a stigma that if you go to the Priory you’re a bad ‘un [one]But this is not true.

“I think the people who go there are brave because they face their demons and whatever their issues are to become a better person.

“Mental health, no matter how big or small I seem, if it’s big for someone, then it’s big for them. It’s just different. Everything can happen.’

Speaking about the dark place she went through with her mental health at the time of the horrific drunk driving accident last year, Katie explained: ‘I live in the countryside, I had no no outlet, I needed someone to talk to and that night I let myself down.’

“I’m not justifying anything, there was a reason why I got in the car and why my head was like this.

‘Unfortunately, I entered this place. I would never go back to this place again. It happened and it’s real but I learned.

The former glamor model, who is still in therapy, said: “I could be 44 now and go to therapy every week, but I wish I had years ago.” It would have stopped a lot of things I might have said or reacted to.

‘I have to accept [certain situations] and not bite anything.

“It’s hard for me to say because I don’t want to sound bitter and I’m not bitter. I’m now talking to my therapist about my situations.

As she comes to terms with her PTSD and past traumas, Katie continued, “I feel like I have to protect myself. I don’t post anything on Instagram anymore. I no longer need to justify myself. I don’t owe anyone anything.

“I don’t go on Instagram anymore and I’m like, ‘Well, that’s wrong,’ it crosses my mind, and then I count down, and by the time I’m down to zero, I’m like, ‘Oh, forget it. that. I feel better and I feel stronger for it. I don’t need to rectify or prove anything to anyone. I know the truth. I grew up !’

In her latest documentary, Katie explains what caused her mental health to deteriorate and the steps she is taking in her recovery.

“There’s a lot of stuff in the program but there’s a lot of stuff I didn’t put in there, it’s only 45 minutes but there’s enough to know I’ve suffered,” she said.

MailOnline has contacted representatives of ITV and Quest Red.

Katie Price: Trauma And Me airs September 8 at 9 p.m. on Channel 4.
