Katie Price: Harvey and Me – everything you need to know about BBC documentary on how life will change as Harvey turns 18

The release date for Katie Price’s documentary about life with her disabled son Harvey has been announced, and here’s what viewers can expect.

Katie Price: Harvey and Me is set to be released at the end of the month, charting the crucial year in his life as he turns 18 and how things will change for his care now that he has become an adult.

The former glamour model, 42, shared the BBC’s post confirming the documentary will be arriving on iPlayer on January 25 after it was revealed to be in the works early last year.

The film will explore what turning 18 will mean for Harvey, as the people and places that have cared for him while he was a child are about to change.

It will also look at the difficult decisions Katie will need to make for her son, including where he will live after the residential care he has been in until now is set to end.

Katie and Harvey will also look at further education options and colleges and meet other families with disabled young adults to seek advice.

Katie said of the documentary: ‘I wanted to share what really goes on behind closed doors – Harvey isn’t a thing to poke fun at, he’s my son.

‘He overcomes mountains and obstacles everyday that other people take for granted – being a single parent of a disabled child is a badge of honour for me!

‘I’m so proud of him, he has feelings, and so do I.’
