Katie Price has been charged with drink-driving after allegedly being almost twice the legal limit while behind the wheel of her pink Range Rover.
The 40-year-old from Horsham was arrested in the stationary car in the early hours of October 10 in Shooter's Hill, Greenwich, south-east London.
Having already been charged with being over the limit while in charge of a vehicle, Bexley Magistrates' Court was told as her trial was due to begin on Monday that she also faces the more serious charge of drink-driving.
The former glamour model has denied the lesser offence and is yet to enter a plea over the second count.
Police found her in the motionless car at about 1.40am.
The court was told that CCTV footage would show her Range Rover earlier damaging a Volkswagen Golf while attempting a three-point turn.
It is alleged Price had 69 microgrammes of alcohol per 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.
The trial was expected to begin on Monday morning.
