KATIE Price has been slammed for leaving son Harvey at home to undergo cosmetic surgery in Turkey.
The former glamour model jetted off last week with fiancé Carl Woods, 32, despite the country being on the UK's red list.
Taking to Instagram earlier today, Katie, 43, posted an adorable throwback photo with her eldest child while recovering from full-body liposuction.
Missing her son, Katie captioned the snap: "The best cuddles are from your babies❤️"
Her comments were flooded with plenty of lovely messages from fans, but one troll took the opportunity to criticise Katie for leaving Harvey, 19, under specialist care while she was away.
They wrote: "Well if you hadn't got to a red country for you're own vain self. You could cuddle him" (sic).
"I thought you look after Harvey 24/7 and only you can calm Harvey down."
Katie's followers leapt to her defence as one tweeted: "All due respect…. Do you have a child with special needs? Have you any idea how all consuming it can be?
"Carers are allowed to take time out for their own mental health. It's really important.
"Don't judge until you've walked a mile in her shoes. If you have nothing nice to say then keep your negativity to yourself."
Katie also posted a picture on social media in compression leggings following the surgery to remove fat from her legs.
The mother-of-five put on two stone over lockdown and wants to get the fat "sucked out" of her before starting IVF with Carl.
Speaking on Steph's Packed Lunch, Katie confessed: "I have tried so much to lose weight, obviously we want a baby and we’re doing IVF.
"I just want to shift some weight before we do it so I am going to have surgery."
