Katie Price appeared on This Morning today to speak about her new BBC documentary about her and son Harvey.
Harvey is autistic, partially blind and has Prader-Willi syndrome and Katie recently revealed she’s putting her son into a residential college.
What did Katie Price say on This Morning?
Addressing claims she’s putting Harvey into care, Katie said: “I know there was speculation about him going into care.
“He’s never going into care and never gone into care.
“I think going into care and residential are very different.
Katie insists residential college is best decision for Harvey
“Residential gives him a chance to be an adult, get independent life skills and not just have to try and rely on me all the time.”
In addition, she said: “He deserves it. I’m trying to look at a 52-week placement for him.
He’s never going into care and never gone into care.
“It gives him the option to come to me [on weekends] or socialise with his friends.”
Viewers took to Twitter to praise Katie, with some branding her the “best” mum.

What else has Katie said about Harvey?
Meanwhile, Katie recently admitted she sometimes wishes Harvey would “go before” her because he wouldn’t be able to cope if she wasn’t here.
Speaking about her BBC documentary, Katie Price: Harvey and Me, the star made her confession.
She said on Steph’s Packed Lunch: “I do say this in the programme… sometimes I wish he would go before me, because he wouldn’t be able to cope if I wasn’t there.
“I know that’s harsh to say, but I know a lot of people in my situation would feel the same way.”
Meanwhile, earlier this month, Katie revealed her decision to put Harvey into a residential college.
She told The Sun: “It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively.”
