Katie Price has revealed she had nightmares of drowning after experiencing a panic attack whilst swimming aged 15.

The 43-year-old media personality feared for her life when a panic attack resulted in her body becoming paralysed during a training session.

‘So I remember one time I was training and I just remember swimming and my body went paralysed,’ Katie said on Life, Interrupted Podcast.

‘I remember holding on to the ropes and shouting out for help because I felt like I was being dragged under the water.

‘From then that’s when my panic attacks started. And then I had nightmares of drowning.’

The frightening ordeal ended her swimming career, but the mother-of-five has learned to control her panic attacks and revealed she hasn’t experienced one for years.

The former glamour model added that panic attacks can ‘tap you on the shoulder’, almost to ‘let you know it’s there’.

She also went so far as to say they can be quite scary ‘because you think you’re gonna die.’ 

Katie, who disclosed that she used to hyperventilate and breathe into a bag during a panic attack, said that it’s a shame because she was ‘so into swimming’ and the experience ‘frightened her.’

The podcast appearance came before Katie was assaulted at her home last week.

Police were called to the TV personality’s home at around 1.30am last Monday, where a man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour.

She has since beefed up security at her home – where she is not currently staying.

Following the assault, a man, 32, was released on bail after he was arrested for assault and coercive control over the attack.

Despite the support of her loved ones, Katie still ‘doesn’t feel safe’, and has been beefing up the security at her home in the wake of her attack.  

It was previously reported that Katie ‘cannot face’ the prospect of a court appearance, yet a source close to the star said friends and family have rallied around her to ensure she has the strength to pursue a conviction.

An insider told MailOnline on Thursday: ‘It’s not true that she is dropping the case, but she is very scared and and is feeling emotionally vulnerable.

‘All her friends and family are behind her and will make sure she has the strength to pursue the case, so she is going full steam ahead.’

Assault: Police were called to the TV personality's home at around 1.30am last Monday, where a man was arrested on suspicion of assault, theft and coercive and controlling behaviour.
