What did Katie Price say about son Harvey?

In a chat with The Sun, Katie said: “It breaks my heart. I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.

She continued: “I’m trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he’ll call on his iPad and say, ‘Mum, I need you’, and I run to him.”

It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day.

Katie explained that Harvey will be “three hours away” and the fact she won’t be able to get to him all the time upsets her, as she has her other kids to care for.

Katie has Junior, 15, Princess, 13, Jett, seven, and Bunny, six.
