Katie Price had tracker on her car

Katie Price felt "physically sick" after a mechanic found a GPS tracking device placed under her Range Rover in a routine check.

The 33-year-old said she was concerned for her three children's safety after the GPS was found under her car at a London garage on Tuesday morning, as she worked on publicity for her new book.

The mechanic found the tracker while the car was on a ramp, having previously been serviced on August 16, said Price.

"So I know someone's been following me or snooping around my property and shoved it on between then and now," said the mother of three, whose children are Princess Tiaamii and Junior with ex-husband Peter Andre and Harvey with former footballer Dwight Yorke.

"I felt physically sick when I spoke to my mum and she told me how a mechanic had found a device hidden on the undercarriage of the Range Rover," she told The Sun.
