What did Michelle Heaton say about Katie Price?
Revealing in a video interview, Michelle explained, “I texted Katie while I was at the Priory, ‘You saved my life.’ Because the Priory saved my life.
“What I was doing was a suicide mission. I never really thought, “I want to kill myself,” but eventually I was killing myself.
“I was crying out for help when I couldn’t really ask for help. But when you’re addicted, you feel like there is no way out. “
