Reality star Katie Price has slammed a troll who mocked her for dating men "half her age".
The 42-year-old former glamour model shared a photograph of her boyfriend Carl Woods, 31, sitting beside her in hospital after her recent surgery to fix her broken feet.
She told fans she wanted to spend the rest of her life with the former Love Island hunk, captioning the shot: "Thank you to @carljwoods for constantly fitting me around his work and being by my side.
"Loving knowing I’ve found the man that has surprisingly ticked every box I could only dream of a man to be like and knowing I’m spending the rest of my life with him."
Many of her followers loved the post, but Katie was forced to stick up for herself when a nasty troll took aim at her and Carl's relationship.
One person wrote: "How can you really think he is 'the one' when he is half your age why don't you try going it alone for a while.
"You don't always need to move on to the next straight away."
The former Celebrity Big Brother winner hit back saying: "You need to add up luv he's 31 I'm 42 hardly half my age."
Before she met Carl, mother-of-five Katie had been single since November last year, when she split with personal trainer Kris Boyson, 29.
Before those relationships Katie was married to Kieran Hayler, 33, and the pair share two gorgeous kids, Bunny and Jett.
Katie had no plans to enter a relationship when she met Carl but they instantly clicked.
The pair have known each other for years but were set up by a mutual friend in May, and have been dating ever since.
Carl is a car dealer from Essex and appeared on Love Island in 2016 as a bombshell on the speed-dating task – but failed to make it into the villa.
A source told The Sun Online at the time: "Katie wasn’t looking for love or a serious relationship but just weeks after meeting Carl, she fell head over heels for him."
Katie recently explained in a video uploaded to her YouTube channel that she will be in "pain for the rest of my life" and has been told she will suffer from arthritis following her horror fall.
She said: "So the update on my feet, they are saying it will take two years for me to be back on my feet after proper rehabilitation.
"For the rest of my life now I'm going to have pain in my feet.
"I'm going to have arthritis, I'm going to have to learn to walk again. Fact. I've been told this."
