Katie Price has confirmed that her son Harvey will be a train announcer for Network Rail.
The 42-year-old shared a post from the Royal Mencap Society, who celebrated Harvey, 18, being offered the chance to work with Network Rail.
The organisation, which supports people with learning disabilities, posted a clip from the BBC Three documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me, in which the mother and son were at Waterloo station.
In the clip, Harvey said he was having ‘so much fun’ watching the trains, and the teenager recited the announcements for South Western Railway – his favourite of the services.
The teenager confidently announced: ‘May I have your attention please?’ Harvey said. ‘This train is formed of 12 coaches. Platform four for the 11.34 South Western Railway service to Guildford.’
Confirming that Harvey was offered a chance to do it in real life, Mencap wrote: ‘Incredible news! Harvey is going to be a train announcer for @networkrail.’
Katie shared the post to her own Instagram story, but didn’t add further comment.
Network Rail also celebrated the offer, sharing a screenshot of an article about Harvey’s gig.
Network Rail’s media relations manager Tracey O’Brien previously told Metro.co.uk: ‘We would be happy to arrange for Harvey to make an announcement at one of the Network Rail managed stations when it is safe to do so.’
Harvey has long been obsessed with trains, and in 2019, his painting of the Gatwick Express was displayed at the airport.
In the deeply personal BBC Three documentary, Katie detailed her decision to send Harvey to a residential college so he could gain independence now that he is 18 years old.
Harvey was born was septic optic dysplasia, a rare disorder that affects brain function, hormones and vision, and lives with blindness, autism and Prader-Willi syndrome, a condition that makes him gain weight.
While the documentary showed the difficulties Harvey’s behavioural difficulties can cause, like the teenager causing damage to the walls in their house, it also showed off the family in their day-to-day lives, with Harvey meeting a fellow train enthusiast friend at Waterloo.
Katie was praised by viewers for her devotion to her eldest son, who she raised as a single mother following her split from Harvey’s father Dwight Yorke.
The reality star is also mum to Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre, and Jett, seven, and six-year-old Bunny with ex Kieran Hayler.
Katie is also hoping to have a sixth child with her partner Carl Woods.
