Katie Price fears she could lose son Harvey to COVID-19, it’s been claimed.

Katie, 42, has been caring for Harvey, 18, since the beginning of the first lockdown.

Forced out of his school due to Government restrictions, Harvey has been sheltering at mum Katie’s rented Surrey home.

But the former glamour model is apparently terrified he could contract the disease – and that it could be potentially fatal.

She says he is ‘obsessed’ with food and will even get up in the night to eat frozen pizzas.

Katie shared her dilemma with The Sun, explaining: “People say to me: ‘Why don’t you just not let him eat?’ but they don’t understand.

“He’ll smash things or head butt the walls if I say no to him.”

She added: “But there is no time to wait, he has to lose weight now.”

She also said she struggles to find clothes that will fit him. And currently depends on just two online shops to clothe her eldest child.

Harvey’s recent hospitalisation

Back in July, Harvey was rushed to hospital, where he spent several days at ICU.

He suffered a high temperature and struggled to breathe.

Fortunately he tested negative to COVID-19, and was able to go home to his mum to recover.

Harvey is Katie’s first and only child with her ex-boyfriend Dwight Yorke.

The former football player is not believed to have seen his son for over a decade.
