The daughter of TV's Richard and Judy, Chloe Madeley has been charged with drink driving after overturning and abandoning her car.
Miss Madeley was arrested after a crash in Meadway Close, Barnet, north London, in the early hours of Sunday morning.
A police patrol came across a Peugeot 206 on its roof after apparently hitting a parked Mini, but the driver had fled the scene, however Miss Madeley was the registered owner.
Officers arrested her at her parents' home near Hampstead Heath and took her to a north London police station where she was breathalysed and charged.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Chloe Madeley, 22, of Barnet, will appear on bail at Hendon Magistrates' Court on September 2 charged with drink-driving."
Miss Madeley's spokesman said that she accepted full responsibility for the damage caused and apologised for her actions.
"She hit a parked car upon her return from the chemist's just after 3.30am on Sunday," he said. "Chloe was not hurt and no one else was involved. The matter is currently being investigated."
Miss Madeley dropped out of Leeds University after one term to pursue a TV career. She worked as a runner on 'The Alan Titchmarsh Show' before joining her parents' chat show 'New Position' as a showbiz reporter.
Miss Madeley has also appeared in men's magazine FHM and as the new face of Ultimo underwear, as well as causing more controversy after pictures of her smoking cannabis were published by the press.
Richard and Judy ended more than two decades on television last month, when they hosted their final show on satellite channel Watch.
