Katie Price admitted she feared she would lose her son Harvey last year when he was rushed to the hospital.
During an appearance on Steph’s Packed Lunch, the 42-year-old discussed caring for her son, who suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, and is also on the autistic spectrum, during the lockdown.
In July, the teenager was rushed to hospital after suffering breathing difficulties and developing a 42c fever.
Speaking openly with Steph McGovern, Katie explained Harvey’s health condition left her fearing for his life when he was first admitted.
She said: "The main thing for me is his weight, because he is 29 stone, he was in intensive care last year.
"And I, at one point, I thought I was going to lose him because of his weight, because of his heart."
Thankfully, Harvey was later discharged and has returned to his family home, with Katie caring for him as the UK endures a third lockdown.
Katie has teamed up with BBC to create a documentary about a year of Harvey's life, following his 18th birthday.
Titled Katie Price: Harvey and Me, the one-off film is set to highlight the struggle faced by families when children with disabilities make the transition into adulthood.
Discussing the feature with Steph, Katie said: "Obviously I’ve done this BBC documentary which some people will be like ‘well why have you done that’.
"Because I think he’s the right age and to show other families the next step of being an adult, trying to find a college for him."
