Katie Price has revealed she’s given son Harvey a three-bed house so he can get used to living independently before moving into full-time residential college.
BBC documentary, Katie Price: Harvey and Me, followed the former glamour model as she embarked on a mission to find a residential college that suits Harvey and his complex needs.
Now as he prepares to make the full-time move away from home, Katie has taken a big step in getting Harvey acclimatised to being away from her and looking after himself.
In her latest YouTube video, Katie explains: ‘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.’
It’s been a challenging process so far as Katie revealed: ‘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.’
Harvey, 18, warmed hearts in the documentary with his sweet personality while Katie was praised for her supportive parenting and devotion to her son.
Her eldest child, whose estranged father is former footballer Dwight Yorke, is partially blind, has Prader-Willi syndrome, is autistic, and has a series of learning and behavioural difficulties.
Harvey has been attending a residential college for some time but the full-time placement will be new territory for the teen. He’s expected to find out if he’s been accepted for his top choice in March.
Katie, 43, and Harvey have received public support from her ex-husbands Kieran Hayler and Peter Andre, who cheered on their former stepson as he makes the transition into adulthood.
Peter, who shares children Princess and Junior with Katie, posted about the documentary on social media and wrote ‘the best’.
Kieran wrote: ‘So proud of you @officialmrharveyprice,’ Kieran, 33, wrote. ‘I love your bond with jett and bunny. Always been so strong.’
The Loose Women panel also applauded Katie while presenter Richard Madeley called for her to be on the New Year’s Honours list for raising awareness about disabilities.
As for Harvey, he’s bagged a job as a train announcer for Network Rail after showing off his impressive skills in the documentary.
