Katie Priceinsisted she's got her life back on track after string of personal troubles during a hellish 2018.

However, as the glamour model made her return toLoose Womenon Friday, she wasn't quite convincing that all was well again.

Body language expert Judi James says it was clear to see that Katie was trying to steer the press narrative about her life in a different direction and wasn't being so honest as she claimed.

Her tone of voice and speed of speaking suggesting she's not quite over the traumatic events, including her third marriage breakdown, a drink driving arrest and her mother being diagnosed with a terminal lung condition.

Katie had two stints in rehab last year after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), but didn't spend long in treatment.

After regaining control of her finances after narrowly avoiding bankruptcy, Katie is keen to assure fans she's nearly back to her 'Pricey' best.

Assessing Katie's Loose Women appearance, Judi said: "This speech, pitch or monologue seemed to be all about Katie but not really delivered by her, or at least in Katie's normal delivery style.

"She began with a verbal announcement technique, saying 'See this is the thing...' in a loud and important voice as though she had her message crystal-clear in her head although the long pause that came after those words and the way she looked down to her left suggested she really hadn't.

"Her mouth remained open while she was still working out the words."

Katie criticised the press attention surrounding her private life last year, despite frequently courting it during her career.

Judi explained: "Like Donald Trump she clearly did want to rubbish all the 'fake news' written about her in the papers during a period when she claimed she had been avoiding publicity.

"For a woman who knows that press interest isn't something you can turn on and off like a tap her indignation didn't look genuine as she kept rubbing or scratching her nose at key points in a way that creates a partial cut-off.

"When Katie is giving both barrels she's normally using eye contact and a very confident facial expression but this nose touching that she repeated around six times made her look confused, anxious or evasive.

"She also didn't seem to be clear when she should have been nailing the lies and telling her fans the truth.

"Her tongue-poke gesture every time someone interrupted her speech suggested she preferred to do a solo spot and looking at the sympathetic faces around her on the desk it was easy to worry that she was avoiding their input in case any help or kindness might make her lose control of her emotions and her story.

"The only time we got a glimpse of the usual Katie and the only time she gathered speed and focus was when she spoke about her sessions at the Priory.

"Otherwise she was speaking loudly and taking deep breath to suggest stress. Her list of tragic events was moving but she's not a woman for self-pity or who asks for sympathy."

Despite trying to assure fans she was back on track, Katie's choice of words suggested she is still processing negative feelings about some of her recent upsetting experiences.

Judi told the Mirror: "She threw out words like 'Manipulative marriage' and 'Traumatic rehabilitation' but her delivery and non-verbal messages suggested she's not yet on the right side of any negative emotions and able to look back calmly to evaluate them.

"Katie likes to do everything at double-speed but she did look as though she needs more time to help cope with some of the traumas and tragedies in her life instead of rushing out 'speeches' like this one."
