Furious fans blast "broke" Katie Price for showing off her chauffeur-driven Mercedes

The photo has not gone down well with some followers

Even when she's at her lowest point, Katie Price still knows how to wind everyone up.

The former glamour model - who recently faced bankruptcy - has enraged followers with a glamorous picture of her chauffeur-driven Mercedes, while also laughing off her driving ban.

Next to the glossy picture, the 40-year-old wrote: "Best chauffeur company in London thank you very much for always looking after me Team HR I have lots of work for you now 😂 @hr_carriages_mayfair."

It follows a bad year for the I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here star, who has dealt with divorce, drunken arrests, rehab, custody issues and - just in the past week - two different court visits.

Her recent near-miss with bankruptcy meant she told the judge she couldn't afford to pay the £1295 fine for ignoring her driving ban, and she now has 14 days to come up with the money. According to reports it has forced her to resort to selling her pants and old breast implants.

It was even claimed she'd had to take her own website down as she hadn't been able to pay the bill.

One comment read: "Not one to have a go but Katie you cannot use your fans as fools. Your show has been about your downfall lately and you have tried hard for public sympathy. You then show publicly your financial situation?"

I thought she was bankrupt?? Completely different worlds we live in!

A second follower wrote: "I thought she was bankrupt?? Completely different worlds we live in!! If I’m broke I’m broke!!!"

Another added: "How can you not pay an £1100 fine but hire this? She’s such a div..."

Others also found it distasteful that she would joke - with a laughing face emoji - about being banned from driving, with one fan commenting: "KP actually finds it funny? That’s sticking your finger up to every law abiding driver out there."

A second said: "Driving without a licence is a laughing matter?"

A third wrote: "Celebrities get punished don’t they. Joke." A fourth very angry follower blasted: "You should be in prison and your children put in care!"

A few though rushed to defend the reality star, with one attacking the other comments by saying: "So many people with perfect lives, never done anything wrong! Leave the woman alone, she’s trying her best to get her life back together."

Another accused others of being jealous, with one comment reading: "Jealousy is a disease on its own. It’s worse than drink-driving." While one more shrugged: "Haters going to hate..."
