Most celebrities are dropped off at and picked up from nightclubs, restaurants and star-studded events so never have to worry about parking.

But Katie Price is a woman that likes to get behind the wheel and ferry herself around – even if it means a spot of bother in the car park at the end of the night.

The glamour model was snapped trying to leave an NCP multi-storey in central London last night after a night out with on-off boyfriend Leandro Penna.

But she was scuppered from exiting after she and her big pink Land Rover was brought to a halt at the ticket barrier.

Although it is unclear why she couldn't leave, it would appear that she coulnd't find her ticket to pay for her stay in the car park while she partied at the Madame JoJos nightclub.

A frantic search of her car then ensued
as Leandro, her best friends, make-up artist Gary Cockerill and DIY
supremo Phil Turner hunted for the ticket.

They searched the front seat, under the visors and in the glove compartment for the ticket while Katie hung her head in frustration.

A policeman was even called but he appeared to see the funny side of it and he and Phil had to stifle their giggles.

Katie eventually got out and made her way home with her boys no doubt laughing about it on the journey back.

They had enjoyed a night at the world-famous cabaret club in Soho, although next time they might think about getting a cab.

Katie has been spending a lot of time with Leandro lately and a few days ago took to her Twitter page to confirm: '@leandro__penna and myself are happy to be making another go of it together woooooooo.'

And she recently had another reunion with an ex-boyfriend, this time with pop star Dane Bowers.

But it was strictly professional after she revealed that she was heading back into the recording studio to record a duet with him, despite her failed attempt to reach the charts before.

She tweeted: 'There’s more music coming from me – I’m not going to stop.'
