The model and TV personality opened up about the incident on last week’s episode of Celebrity SAS: Who Dares Wins on Channel 4, but has now discussed the robbery in greater detail.

The star, mum to sons Harvey, 17, Junior, 14, Princess 12, Jett, six and Bunny, five, revealed she was waiting “for a bullet to hit” as she attempted to protect her family after stopping for a toilet break near Johannesburg.

Price has also revealed the experience left her with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and needing treatment at ­Priory rehab clinic.

Speaking to The Sun, the 41-year-old explained: “The reason I went there was because I got held at gunpoint and sexually assaulted.

“Six men attacked us after we stopped because my son Junior needed a wee. We should never have been allowed to make that journey without security.

“It was like something from a horror film. This big man in an adidas hoody was shouting in my face, swearing and demanding I give him everything. And he was touching me down below.”

The star revealed she “thought she was going to die” during the horrific incident, but her protective instinct took precedence as she “launched” herself in front of the kids “trying to protect them”.
