A spokesperson for former glamour model Katie confirmed in a statement: ‘I can say with confidence there will be a part two of this wonderful documentary.

‘Katie has been inundated with requests for a follow up to cover the next steps in Harvey’s transition.’ 

In the days since the first documentary aired, Katie shared the sweet moment she told eldest son he was going to be a train announcer.

Katie uploaded a YouTube video showing her telling him he’d get to call out some of the trains on whatever route he liked, with the teen clearly delighted by the surprise.

She said: ‘You know you went to the station with Zach? Lots of people saw you talk about trains.

The company, a station phoned mummy up and said would Harvey like to go to a station and do an announcement?

‘Harvey would go: ”Can I have your attention please?” Would you like to do that and take Zach with you? What do you think? Are you excited?’

Katie also revealed she’s got her son a three-bedroom house to help prepare him to go to residential college full-time.

The mother-of-five and the teenager appeared in the video to talk about his new abode, which is across the road from her home in Surrey.

In the video, Katie and Harvey sat on the sofa in the living room of his new home. 

Katie explained: ‘So I’ve got this house for Harvey. Basically it’s a three bedroom house I got him for all he needs. I’ve been doing it up a little bit for him.

‘I’ve got it for him before he goes to residential to get used to the transition. And yes he’s already made some holes in the walls and stuff, which I keep plastering. I’m trying to keep on top of everything and make it a nice home for him.

‘As you can see there’s bits and that everywhere but next time we will give you a tour of Harvey’s new home.’

Katie believes the move is vital for Harvey’s well-being because she can no longer restrain the at 6ft2in and 29 stone teen if he has a mood swing – and fears he could be sectioned if she doesn’t act now.  

She also said Harvey is excited about the prospect of going into a full-time college, after previously going to a residential college five days a week.

Addressing the camera, Katie said: ‘I’d like to say thank you to everybody, for all your support and messages.

Dream come true: The documentary saw Harvey visit a train station as a treat for his birthday, leading fans to start a campaign for Network Rail to let him be an announcer

‘It means so much, very kind, loving. We want to do more stuff and hopefully we have raised more about disability and the journey really. Harvey is 18, an adult, lots of people have you seen you as a baby growing up.

‘Also Harvey has asked to been an ambassador for Mencap which is amazing. All these opportunities coming in now for us to help anyway we can.’

The documentary saw Katie’s difficult task in finding a residential college for Harvey which wasn’t too far from home and in which her son felt comfortable in.  

It also detailed her anguish at learning to let her son go as she worried whether he could cope without her.

At the forefront of everything was the emotional bond between Katie and Harvey, with the former glamour model clearly devoted to her son, while Harvey’s adoration of his mother was hard to miss.

WHAT IS PRADER-WILLI SYNDROME?

Prader-Willi syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes problems including constant urges to eat food, restricted growth and reduced muscle tone.

Other potential issues include learning difficulties, lack of sexual development and behavioral problems such as tantrums or stubbornness.

The rare condition, which affects one in every 15,000 children born in England, is caused by a defect on chromosome number 15 – and happens by chance.

Because there is no cure, treatment aims to manage the symptoms – with parents of sufferers urged to get their children to stick to a healthy, balanced diet.

Children with the syndrome can eat up to six times more than children of the same age – and still feel hungry.

It was first described in 1956 by Swiss doctors A Prader, A Labhart and H Willi.
