Katie’s post comes just days after Harvey was rushed to hospital via an ambulance.

She took to her YouTube channel to explain what had happened.

She said during her daughter Princess’ 13th birthday, Harvey began to feel unwell.

The ambulance arrived and feared there was something wrong with his chest.

“I’m glad he’s home”

At hospital she says they diagnosed him as fighting off a chest infection.

She explained: “Just for safety they took him to hospital and had chest X-rays and all of that, and they think he’s just got a chest infection coming.

“But luckily he’s home now, I’m glad he’s home.”

Harvey has Prader-Willi Syndrome and is autistic.
