'The Californian sunshine is sending Victoria senile': Katie Price hits out at size 6 star Mrs Beckham for saying she represents average women
01:07 GMT, 1 April 2012
She's known for her slender size 6 frame and her efforts to keep herself slim and stylish.
So when Victoria Beckham spoke out to insist she represents the average woman in a magazine this week it was no doubt going to cause controversy.
And her nemesis Katie Price has jumped straight on her comments and slammed the star for being so deluded.
Hitting out: Katie Price has taken another opportunity to hit out at Victoria Beckham, insisting the former Spice Girl is going senile if she thinks her size 6 frame makes her average
The glamour model was shocked to read the interview of Victoria in the British edition of Harper's Bazaar and has taken to her own column in The Sun on Sunday to lash out at the former Spice Girl.
In the fashion spread, Beckham discusses her clothing collection and insists she models the range because she stands for 'the general public'.
The 37-year-old told the magazine: 'We always joke that we have this
fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is six-foot-whatever and then I
say “OK, I’m going to put it on. I stand for the general public here”.'
Sun getting to her Victoria told Harper's Bazaar UK she models her fashion designs instead of models because she 'stands for the general public'
But Katie has been quick to point out the general public is actually an average of a size 16 and wouldn't be able to afford her range.
The TV star wrote in her column today: 'I think all this Californian sunshine is sending Posh senile because she is a size 6.
'And if she had read the papers this week she would know that the general public like eating pasties and the average British woman is a size 16. They can't afford Posh's 1,000 dresses let alone fit into them.'

And despite making the comments about standing for the general public, the words accompany Victoria's fashion spread for the magazine.
The former singer posed for a number of glamorous shots showing off her figure in a number of swimsuits.
And her tiny physique is clearly on display as she stretched out for the camera.
A representative for Victoria has dismissed Katie's comments as publicity seeking and told the MailOnline: 'I really don't think we need to make any comment on someone seeking publicity in this way.'
