Katie Price has hit back at ''small-minded trolls'' on social media.

The 42-year-old TV star - who has Harvey, 18, with Dwight Yorke, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with Peter Andre, and Jett, five, and Bunny, four, with Kieran Hayler - has defended her relationship with Carl Woods following recent criticism online.

Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ''I've heard every bit of abuse, insults and hurtful s*** naming calling under the sun from people who haven't met me nor @carljwoods , I'm sick of small minded trolls trying to put us down.

''I'm not a s*** I NEVER slept around being called a s*** is infuriating and cruel. There isn't many guys that would be able to handle the life changing injuries I have. Just be happy for me for once, I deserve it. (sic)''

The former glamour model has only been dating Carl for a few months, but Katie is said to be so smitten with the former 'Love Island' star that she's already planning a long-term future with him.

Katie is reported to be in the market for a new property after breaking both her feet while on holiday in Turkey, as her current home isn't wheelchair accessible.

A source previously said: ''Katie's realised she'll need to move house as the one she's currently in isn't wheelchair-accessible.

''She was talking about moving in with Carl before the holiday to Turkey, and being together 24/7 has only encouraged her to officially move in together.

''They're house-hunting together in Essex this week and can't wait to live together. They're extremely loved up and her kids have given him the thumbs up. She's over the moon.''
