Former glamour model Katie Price’s mansion in West Sussex has been transformed into a second-hand car lot.
Despite Price’s own driving ban after overturning her car in September, a number of cars including a Mercedes, Range Rover, Beetle and Jaguar are parked on her drive.
It has been suggested that Price’s boyfriend, car salesman Carl Woods, 32, is using the site to store vehicles, The Sun reports.

Price, 43, was handed a 16-week suspended sentence and two-year driving ban on Wednesday for flipping her uninsured BMW X5 into a hedge while disqualified and under the influence on a country lane near her home on September 28.
Handing down the sentence, a Crawley Magistrates’ Court judge slammed Price for her ninth motoring offence, telling her: ‘You deserve to spend Christmas behind bars.’
Drink-driving campaigners said they were ‘gobsmacked’ by the ‘unbelievable’ sentence, but the judge said Price would avoid going to jail because she completed a stint at celebrity rehab clinic The Priory and stayed out of trouble.
Hey boyfriend Mr Woods previously ran his second-hand car business outside of his dad’s home in Essex but is understood to have relocated it to Price’s luxurious home, which is currently under threat from her bankruptcy proceedings.
A friend said: ‘Her pad looks like a garage forecourt. It’s ironic given she’s not allowed behind a wheel.’
The £2million home suffered a collapsed ceiling and flooded kitchen earlier this year.

Following her court appearance, Price released a statement saying she is ‘incredibly sorry’ and ‘sincerely grateful nobody was hurt’.
In a statement on her Instagram page, she issued a grovelling apology and said she ‘realised the damage my actions could have caused’.
She added: ‘I would like to thank my family – my children, my mum, dad, sister, brother, my partner Carl, Leigh, and my friends who have supported me throughout these past few months
‘It’s been a really difficult time and I’m incredibly sorry for my actions – I’m sincerely grateful nobody was hurt – I realise the damage my actions could have caused not only to another family, but to my own as well.
‘I’m now spending time getting better – mental health is a hidden illness and can strike at any time.
‘The triggers that cause my anxiety and behaviour are something I’m trying to understand, come to terms with, and learn to control moving forward.’
