Katie Price is set to move into a wooden shack. 

The glamour model is having her £2.5 million home in West Sussex, South East England, renovated so she and her three children - Harvey, nine, Junior, six, and four-year-old Princess Tiaamii - will be living in a log cabin for the next 12 months on the property's grounds. 

The hut is 38ft long and 20ft wide and comes with a kitchen, living room, three bedrooms a family bathroom and is suitable for young Harvey, who has special needs. 

Her agent Paul Tither wrote to the council in a bid to allow Katie - who also keeps horses on her land - to have the cabin put up temporarily. 

According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, he told them: "The proposals are to provide adequate living accommodation for a family of five including a disabled child for a temporary period. The applicant needs to be on site to tend to the horses within the stables in case of an emergency overnight." 

Council officer Lisa da Silva said: "The planning authority would not normally grant permission for such development but under the circumstances it is considered reasonable to make an exception and to allow the development for a limited period." 

Katie is adding a cinema, side extension and oak-framed indoor swimming pool to her current home.
