Katie Price slams Holly Willoughby and Phil Schofield as she reignites ITV feud

Katie Price has kickstarted her feud with broadcaster ITV over the lack of security on her ill-fated work trip to South Africa.

On the trip in 2018, the mother of five was carjacked and sexually assaulted while filming a new show for the channel.

Katie claimed that the channel would've provided more security for their This Morning presenters Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield.

She told The Times: "They wouldn’t do that to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby, would they? If they went away they’d have security people licking their a***s, sweeping the f***ing floor for them."

"I’m the type of person who’ll stay in the same hotel as the crew, because they get cheaper hotels than the talent. Because I’m me, and I’m humble, people take advantage of it", Katie went on.

Katie sadly continued: "Look what happened. I have to live with that for the rest of my life."

The former I'm A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here star spoke about the ordeal in a Channel 4 documentary called Trauma And Me.

At the time of the attack, Katie was with her children, Junior and Princess as they travelled from Johannesburg to Swaziland.

“We were out in South Africa with the kids Junior and Princess with ITV. We had no security.

"Junior wanted a wee. We got out the car. And all I remember him saying is, 'Mum imagine if I jump down here'" she said in the programme.

"Next thing you know a car pulled up, six guys in it, out with their guns. They did things to me in front of my kids in the car. They had a gun to my head. We thought we were going to die" Katie explained.

A spokesperson for Multistory Media released a statement, saying: "We understand that the robbery in 2018 was very distressing for Katie, her family and the production team.

"All security protocols were followed and the robbery was investigated at the time by the local police and the production team."

They continued: "Extensive and long-term support was offered to Katie and her family following the robbery.

"Reported allegations of sexual assault are most concerning.

"At no point, during the robbery or the subsequent investigation, did anyone involved or who witnessed this incident suggest that a rape had taken place."
