Katie Price and her disabled son Harvey are to star in a brand new documentary about their unusual family life.

The 43-year-old and Harvey, 19, already starred in a BBC One documentary in January - about how the ex-glamour model cares for Harvey, who has septo-optic dysplasia, Prader-Willi syndrome, autism, and a learning disability.

Now, she will reveal more about the realities of raising a disabled child in a follow-up series called Katie Price: What Harvey Did Next.

"The overwhelming love and support we received following Harvey And Me earlier this year was incredible," Katie said in a statement. "To see how so many people connected with our story and how it has helped so many families out there who are going through similar experiences has made me so proud. But Harvey's story doesn't end there.

"In this next documentary, we will again open up our lives to viewers, as Harvey takes the next step into adulthood as he moves out of our family home.

"I want to show our real story about how Harvey and I cope with such a big change in our lives, and hopefully help others dealing with similar issues."

The first documentary followed Katie and Harvey as she tried to prepare him for adulthood, and a level of independence he has not experienced before, including his first job shadowing staff at a train company.

It also dealt with issues of care and education for children with complex needs as she spoke to parents going through similar experiences with their own disabled children.

Katie has been open about the difficulties of caring for Harvey, her son by former soccer star Dwight Yorke, and how she has had to protect him from bullying while being in the public eye.

The first programme was shortlisted for a 2021 National Television Award. The follow-up, which was shot over the summer, has yet to receive an air date.
