KATIE Price has defended her “messy garden” after critics claimed she had an overgrown lawn and overflowing bins at her new pad.

The former glamour model, 41, was devastated trolls attacked her efforts to keep her rented home tidy after sharing her latest YouTube video, according to The Mirror.

She said there was “no harm” in letting her grass grow out a bit while she awaited the arrival of her new lawnmower next week.

The mother-of-five, who grew up in Patcham, reportedly said the cardboard piled by her bin was ready to be moved to the recycling.

A spokesman for her said: “Katie was deeply upset to be garden shamed and unfairly linked to her past mucky mansion.”

Katie relocated from her former home near Horsham, nicknamed the “mucky mansion”, and into a £4,250 per month six-bedroom home in Surrey before lockdown.

Her spokesman said “much has changed” since the move and she has kept on top of keeping the house nice and clean.

The house near Horsham, where Katie lived with her children, included a swimming pool, tennis court and horse stables.
