Katie Price has hit out at a vile troll who accused her of pretending her mum is terminally ill.
Amy Price, 65, suffers from idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, with Katie revealing last year that her mum is "struggling to breathe" as a result from the illness.
Former glamour model Katie, 42, has now taken a swipe at a social media user who asked if Amy was really terminally ill after she posted an image of her mum on Instagram.
In the image, shared with Katie's 2.3million followers, Amy is seen sat posing on a wrapped bale of hay in an enormous field.

While most of the reality star's followers commented on how great Amy looks in the snap, one vile person alleged that Katie had made up her mum's diagnosis for money.
The person wrote: "How did she get up there???? She was dying 3 years ago and struggling breathing… Or was that more b**l to sell [sic]"
Fans of the I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! legend jumped to her defence, with one writing: "Illness comes in all shapes and sizes, good days and bad days, remission and relapse. Why don't you focus on yourself rather than being rude on the internet. I'm sure there's better uses for your time than nitpicking someone's mums health condition [sic]."
A second wrote: "It took my nan after 5 years after being diagnosed so stop being so judgemental. My nan had planned to go on holiday the week she died. You have no idea how cruel this illness is, or how it effects the person, who just wants to live and appreciate every day."
Another commented: "You need to look inside yourself to say something as awful as that. You don't even know when photo was taken! Narrowed mindedness!!"
While a final fan asked: "Are you f**king normal you? How on earth do you think that's normal to say. Disgusting thing…"

Katie also took to her story to call out the troll, posting a screenshot of the mean comment.
