Katie Price’s son Harvey discharged from hospital and back at home after contracting ‘bug’ that led to ambulance call


KATIE Price’s disabled son Harvey has been discharged from hospital after needing urgent medical attention yesterday.

The 18-year-old, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, was taken away from his sister Princess’s 13th birthday in an ambulance after falling ill with a bug.

But The Sun Online can reveal he has been allowed home after having tests on Monday – and even made it back in time to get a piece of birthday cake.

A representative for Katie told us: “Harvey was kept under observation and then discharged last night.

“He was home in time to enjoy a slice of Princess’s birthday cake. He picked up a bug, which led to an elevated temperature and the ambulance was called as a precaution.

“Katie is very glad he’s back at home.”

The Sun Online revealed yesterday that Harvey had been taken to hospital for tests, with a rep explaining: “He wasn’t feeling well yesterday and today has presented symptoms that require urgent medical attention.

“Katie recognised the signs and knew when to call an ambulance. He’s expected to be discharged later today.”

Harvey has a range of complex needs. As well as having the rare genetic condition Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause weight gain and behavioural problems, he is also partially blind and on the autistic spectrum.

He was celebrating Princess – who is Katie’s eldest daughter with Peter Andre – becoming a teenager yesterday at their rented Surrey home.

As well as Harvey, whose dad is footballer Dwight Yorke, Katie has Princess and Junior, 15, with ex-husband Peter Andre.

She also has two younger children – son Jett, six, and daughter Bunny, five – with Kieran Hayler.

Katie and Dwight dated in 2001 but split shortly before Harvey was born. Since then, she has claimed he has only seen his son a handful of times.
