She said: “Getting in the car was a terrible mistake I’m so sorry for. That was a prime example of me having been triggered and not knowing how to handle it, an example of my spiralling out of control because I needed help.”

Followed being diagnosed with PTSD the star also said it seems she will need therapy “for the rest of her life.”

Leading the documentary, Katie publicized that she was raped during a terrible carjacking in 2018, in South Africa.

The experience when I was filming with ITV in South Africa, we had no security, if we had security they would have been able to deal with the six guys that jumped us, held me at gunpoint and raped me,” Katie told MailOnline.

The attackers threw Katie out of the vehicle, at the time of her journey from Johannesburg to Swaziland in two people carriers with the production crew.

The vehicles were plundered of laptops, iPads, passports, cash and jewelery yet the robbers left behind a fortune in camera gear which the crew had stored on board. Anyway in no time the attackers were incarcerated.

“I hit severe depression a couple of years ago, depression on top of PTSD, I was suicidal, didn’t want to be here. I tried to kill myself,” revealed Katie during her recent show on Channel 4, “I knocked myself out and had black eyes. I had bruises around my neck. I woke up. I didn’t want to be here.”

The former glamour model, who still goes to therapy, said: “I might be 44 now and have therapy each week, but I wish I would have done this years ago. It would have stopped a lot of things that I might have said or reacted to.”

“I have to accept [certain situations] and not bite back to anything anymore. It’s hard for me to say because I don’t want to sound bitter and I am not bitter. I speak to my therapist now about my situations,” she added.
