Katie Price has revealed that she fears for the health of her 18-year-old son Harvey, who suffers from a number of health conditions, and knows that he needs to lose some of his 28-stone weight.
Harvey is autistic and struggles with an excessive appetite caused by his genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, Price said: "It's a cruel illness. He feels hungry all the time. Every time I feed him, it's killing him. Even though it makes him happy, it's cruel of me to do it. He needs to lose weight or he'll end up dead. He doesn't deserve that. I don't want to lose him."
Katie also confessed that Harvey even "eats in his sleep" and finds food himself, making her task impossible.
"It's a cruel and horrible illness where he feels hungry all the time - and if he doesn't get food he gets angry. It's hard work. He'll smash things up if you say no. I've had to re-plaster my walls because he'll bash holes in them with his head.
"You can't leave food or leftovers on the side or he'll eat it, and he's really quick too. He even eats in his sleep. He'll walk downstairs and eat whatever he can find. We've even found him rummaging through friends' bags for food."
