KATIE Price won’t return to her "cursed" mucky mansion and will move back in with her terminally ill mum Amy after rehab.
The 43-year-old is undergoing therapy at The Priory Centre after an all-night drink and coke bender and flipping her car on Tuesday morning.
Katie avoided an immediate jail sentence under the condition that she have treatment at the facility, not commit any further offences, and be banned from driving in the interim.
Katie's stepdad drove her to rehab and the reality TV star's family released a supportive statement that urged her to get help, adding: "We are not asking for sympathy – just that it is recognised that Kate is unwell."
The Sun has since learned that Katie's mum Amy – who is living with terminal idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, an incurable lung condition – is keen to have her home with them until her fate is revealed when she is sentenced in court on December 15.
A source said: "Katie can't go back to the house now – it's a wreck and it's bad for her mental health living there.
"She always said it was cursed and now this has happened.
"Her mum and step-dad want her to move in with them after she's finished treatment so they can support her."
Katie had been renovating the £1.3 million Sussex mansion, which she is convinced is haunted, and was set to document her progress on a new TV show.
However, another new television documentary with her disabled son was axed following her drug and drink-drive crash.
BBC bosses pulled the plug on What Harvey Did Next centred on Harvey, 19, who was born with disabilities including partial blindness, ADHD and Prader-Willi syndrome.
A source told The Sun: "Katie understands, of course, and hopes there may be scope in the future to pick up where they left off. The BBC will want to see what happens before making any decisions."
Meanwhile, last night her former lawyer Nick Freeman – who successfully defended the former glamour model in 2010 when she was accused of using a mobile while driving – predicted Katie WON'T go to prison.
He added to The Sun: “She might receive a suspended sentence or a probation order. I think the courts will give her a probation order or some sort of community penalty.
“It will be to help her help herself and give her the level of support that she needs.
Should the taxpayer pay thousands of pounds putting her to prison?
“If she does it again then she is the author of her own fate.
“But if she complies with the court I can say with almost certainty that she won’t get an immediate custodial sentence.
“The court has basically said to her ‘if you sort yourself out we won’t send you to custody’.
“The onus is on her and she’s very lucky to have this opportunity.
“If they defer sentence they are expecting her to go to the Priory and get herself sorted.
“On the face of it it is a serious drinking driving case – aggravated because there is a crash and there are drugs.
“It’s serious but the court obviously sympathises with her predicament as a single mum with a disabled child.
“She has been very open and candid with the police and the courts have said to her if you sort yourself out you won't go to prison.
“They are saying ‘it’s down to you doing what you say you’re going to do’. At the end of the day she is not a criminal, she is someone relying on substances to get through her life.
“Should the taxpayer pay thousands of pounds putting her to prison? What good is it going to do?
“What good is it going to do to her son?"
