Katie Price has likened herself to an elephant.

The pregnant former glamour model - whose husband Kieran Hayler cheated on her with her best friend Jane Pountney earlier this year - has alluded to the shocking scandal, claiming that like the majestic mammal she forgives but never forgets.

She said: ''I'm pretty similar to an elephant - I have a few wrinkles, hardened skin, a flat bum. But most of all, they say elephants never forget - I sure don't.''

Given her affinity to elephants, 36-year-old Katie - who has children Harvey, 12, Junior, nine, and Princess, seven, from previous relationships, and 11-month-old Jett with Kieran - has taken great offence to American cheerleader Kendall Jones, 19, who recently caused controversy by posing with dead animals she had killed on a hunting trip in South Africa.

Katie wrote in her column for Now magazine: ''I'm a bit of an animal lover with all sorts of creatures at Pricey's Farm, including four dogs, two cats, 40 chickens, 20 ducks, two peacocks, five geese, five horses and two goats.

''Maybe it's my pregnancy hormones ... I've found myself welling up.

''I saw pics of Kendall 'celebrating' her kill - a lion, elephant, rhino ... the list goes on. Shocking, but simply, why? These animals are in their own environment 'surviving' against their own daily predators - but then along comes another 'animal' predator with a gun.''
