Harvey, 17, suffers with Prader-Willi Syndrome, a genetic condition leading to poor development and weight gain. He is partially sighted and also struggles with septo-optic dysplasia, which affects his growth.

“I’m working hard home-schooling Harvey and we’re spending lots of time reading together,” Katie said.

She added: “It isn’t easy on my own, but we’re making it work.”

It’s just the two of them staying at Katie’s home, while her other children Junior, 14, and Princess, 12, are staying with their dad Peter Andre. Younger kids Jett, six, and Bunny, five, are currently living with their father Kieran Hayler.

Katie and Harvey have been posting supportive messages for the NHS as well as taking part in the clap for key workers every Thursday evening at 8pm.
