Katie Price and Michelle Heaton spent a fun afternoon together on Wednesday.

The former Page 3 icon, 43, and Liberty X hitmaker, 42, reunited at Katie's home in Sussex – infamously dubbed her as her 'mucky mansion'.

During the get-together – which was shared on Katie's Instagram Stories – the pair of pals playfully tried on different sets of slippers that Katie is selling online.

The footage showed Katie kicking her legs in the air with the fluffy shoes on her feet as she sat on a grey crushed velvet chair before the camera panned to Michelle beaming as she knelt down.

Michelle radiated happiness in the clip as she dressed in a casual striped hooded jumper paired with jeans.

Katie opted for pastel pink leggings teamed with a grey jumper and wrapped a fluffy headband around her crown.

The girlie get-together followed on from Katie telling revealed how she convinced her friend Michelle to seek help for her battle with addiction.

The singer went to rehab in April after she went on a three-day-long cocaine bender, and was later rushed to The Priory after her friends, including Katie, intervened to save her life.

Taking to her Instagram account on Tuesday night, Katie – who had her own stint at The Priory – shared a harrowing picture of Michelle at her lowest point in the grips of addiction with red and puffy eyes

Next to it she posted a snap of Michelle now looking happy and healthy with a huge grin on her face.

In the caption, Katie wrote: "This is a picture of before and after of my incredible strong best longest loyal friend ever that asking for help that she needed is the hardest step you can do.

"I’ve done she has done it I helped her too this is the website @wonderwomanshel recommends that helped her www.alcoholics-anonymous.org.uk.

"Everyone can suffer mental health never be afraid to talk and ask for help. This picture was taken a week before I finally got her help love you always x."

Michelle also shared the same picture to her own Instagram account and shared that she is now 20-weeks sober.

She wrote: "This picture is not to shock, it WAS my reality!

"20 weeks ago this was me – Ruined – immune system was shutting down. The second is me today – Saved – strong happy healthy.

"It's National Sober Day And it encourages us to celebrate Sober life and bring awareness to addiction.

"It's also National Recovery Month, and today supports removing the stigma associated with addiction.

"It opens the lines of communication that lead to better understanding. The day provides an opportunity to build educated support networks.

"Success is more likely when systems are paved with an aware, loving, and honest cheering section.

"If we stumble, aren't we more likely to get back up again when we have a solid support system.

"Encouragement of one day fuels more support and awareness, leading to long-term sobriety. That's something worth celebrating! The opposite of addiction is a connection. Recognising this provides a model for future generations who will be my picture one!

"And then the second picture demonstrates how to enjoy life alcohol-free, the day will embolden future generations to say no to alcohol."

She finished the post by sharing a quote from her calendar, reading: "Today I am stronger mentally and physically better then I've ever been. One day at a time."
