Katie Price ‘disappointed’ as Dwight Yorke fails to contact disabled son Harvey after moving documentary

Katie Price has reportedly been left ‘angry and disappointed’ that ex Dwight Yorke has still not reached out to their son, Harvey.

The 18-year-old, who has a series of learning and physical difficulties, took centre stage in a moving documentary about his life as mum Katie prepares to move him to a residential college to become more independent.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me was widely praised by viewers for its honest and touching depiction of the joys of family life, but also the struggles Katie has faced raising him.

Sources told The Sun that Katie was hoping Dwight would see their amazing adult son in the documentary and reach out.

Unfortunately, he still hasn’t.

According to the website, Katie’s rep said: ‘Katie is sadly somewhat resolved to this being the usual outcome – Katie has made it quite clear however that the door will always be open to change that at any time.’

Harvey, who was seen as incredibly loving towards his brothers and sisters and having a love of trains, has autism; Prader-Willi Syndrome – which causes learning and physical difficulties; and septo-optic dysplasia – a genetic disorder that means he’s partially blind.

Dwight cut all communication with Katie and Harvey more than ten years ago, initially even refusing to acknowledge that Harvey was his until Katie took a DNA test.

He later acknowledged Harvey as his son in an interview with Kay Burley, admitting he ‘wasn’t the perfect father’.

Dwight also fought back against Peter Andre when the singer – who was married to Katie from 2005 to 2009 – asked if he could officially adopt the Harvey.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me is available now on BBC iPlayer.
