Katie Price fears ‘Covid would kill’ Harvey so exercises with 29 stone teen

Katie Price has revealed she is scared that her eldest child could die if he was to contract the coronavirus.

The entrepreneur has said she exercises daily with Harvey in a bid to tackle his weight gain over recent months.

Harvey, 18, suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, a genetic condition which can see those living with the condition gain weight as well as battle behavioural problems.

The teen is also partially blind and on the autism spectrum, leaving him on the at-risk category.

Earlier this year, Katie was let worrying when Harvey was rushed into hospital after suffering breathing difficulties and a temperature of 42C.

He later spent ten days in hospital as well as a stint in intensive care after displaying symptoms of coronavirus but tests came back negative.

Speaking to The Sun, the Page 3 icon said: "My mum and Harvey are very high risk. You can hear him breathing.

"Because he is a big boy you can just hear him breathing. Even if he gets a cold that is bad.

"If he gets Covid it would probably finish him off, that is not a joke, so we are really, really, really careful."

Just last month, the mum-of-five shared the news that Harvey's weight had reached 29 stone.

She told that if Harvey didn't lose weight, he would "end up dead".

The teen who wears 7XL sized clothes often gets out of breath while walking up the stairs of their family home.

Katie is now on a "mission" to get him exercising every day, though she is not pushing him as "anything is better than nothing."

Last month, she took to social media to ask her followers if they could help her lay her hands on gym equipment for the teen.

In an emotional plea, she penned: "Can anybody help I'm looking to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for Harvey that can take his weight – 28 and a half stone.

"I have to make sure he can exercise at home."
