Katie Price has updated fans on her son Harvey's condition as he continues to fight an "unknown bug" in hospital.
The 18 year old eldest son of former model Katie was rushed into intensive care on Sunday night, weeks after he was taken into hospital for "urgent medical care" during his sister Princess' birthday celebrations.
He has reportedly been receiving "around the clock" care but hasn't been able to see his 42 year old mum too often due to coronavirus restrictions.

Although doctors have not determined what Harvey is currently fighting, a representative for Katie told Metro Online that it isn't the coronavirus.
They said: "This is most likely linked to the bug he had when he was rushed into hospital last week. It is not Covid-19, it is an unknown bug.

“[Harvey] has had chest pains and a temperature. An extremely high temp. It was 42, you could cook an egg on him. It spiked quickly and he’s had major problems breathing.”
Meanwhile, Katie’s rep also warned that the next two days were “critical” for Harvey, who has a number of health conditions including diabetes and an over-active thyroid.
They told MailOnline: “The next 48 hours are critical. Harvey just really needs to do well over the next couple of days. He is having loads of tests today and being watched around-the-clock.”
