Katie Price shares ‘heartbreak’ over son Harvey leaving for residential care

Katie Price has shared her heartache over Harvey moving out to go to a residential college.

The 42-year-old reality star's eldest son Harvey is partially blind, autistic and has Prader-Willi syndrome.

Katie and Harvey were interviewed on Channel 5's Jeremy Vine show on Thursday ahead of her new documentary film.

The programme, Kate Price: Harvey and Me, sees the mother open up about their lives as her son turns 18 and she's forced to make tough decisions about his future.

Jeremy asked Katie about how much she would miss Harvey when he moves out.

He said to the media personality: "You're going to miss him aren't you", to which Katie replied: "It will break my heart."

She added: "But I know he's not gone forever", as she explained she will still see Harvey "at weekends and holidays".

The television personality explained: "It's like any kid, you've just got to let them explore the next level."

Katie also opened up about the process of finding the right college for Harvey.

She said: "It's not an easy journey when you've got disabilities."

The star continued: "Because of all his complex needs it's quite limited where he can go."

Channel 5 viewers showered Katie and Harvey with praise and love after their television appearance.

One said: "Katie Price really is the best mum!"

While another wrote: "Well done Katie and good luck to Harvey".

"Good on you Katie Price", added a third.

Katie recently opened up about her son Harvey’s recent health battle during an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch on Tuesday.

She talked about caring for her son during lockdown in the candid television chat.

In July 2020, Harvey was rushed to hospital after suffering breathing difficulties and developing a worryingly high fever.

Katie explained that Harvey’s health condition left her fearing for his life.

Speaking about the scary ordeal with Steph McGovern, Katie explained: "The main thing for me is his weight, because he is 29 stone, he was in intensive care last year.

"And I, at one point, I thought I was going to lose him because of his weight, because of his heart."

Thankfully, Harvey was later discharged and has returned to his family home.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me airs Monday 25th January at 8:30pm on BBC One.
