    Katie Price reveals she padlocks the fridge to try and stop 29 stone Harvey, 18, overeating 

    ‘He needs to lose weight or he’ll end up dead… I’ll do anything to help him’: Katie Price reveals she padlocks the fridge to try and stop 29 stone son Harvey, 18, from overeating

    Katie Price has candidly spoken about her struggle with her eldest son Harvey’s size, with the teenager now weighing 28st 7lb.

    The former glamour model, 42, explained how she’s had to take drastic steps to try and reduce his eating and has even started to padlock the fridge, reports The Sun.

    Harvey, 18, has multiple disabilities including blindness and ADHD and also has an excessive appetite caused by genetic condition ­Prader-Willi Syndrome.    

    ‘I’ll do anything to help’: Katie Price has  candidly spoken about her struggle with her eldest son Harvey’s size, with the teenager now weighing 28st 7lb

    Katie said: ‘He needs to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. He doesn’t deserve that. I don’t want to lose him… I will do anything to help.

    ‘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.’ 

    The doting mother-of-five also revealed that Harvey has put on two stone in just two months and if he is denied food, he can smash the walls and become frustrated.

    After this increase, it has now become ‘critical’ for Harvey to loose some weight with doctors telling Katie that her teenager is at risk of a heart attack.

    MailOnline has contacted Katie’s representative for a comment.

    However it is not easy for Katie to get her son exercising and changing his diet, with her recently appealing for gym equipment on Instagram.

    She also said the teenager has also been known to eat in his sleep and was once caught looking in a pal’s bag for snacks as well as eating a pizza from frozen.

    Katie also said that Harvey, who now wears 7XL clothes, doesn’t understand why she wants him to lose weight.     

    She said: ‘He walks up the stairs and he’s sweating and out of breath. I’m really upset and worried about Harvey’s weight because now it’s on, the damage is done.’

    At the start of November Katie appealed to fans for help sourcing gym equipment ahead of a second lockdown starting in the UK which will force gyms to close.

    Katie wrote: ‘Can anybody help. I’m looking to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for Harvey that can take his weight, 28 half stone, and other gym bits as through lockdown I have to make sure he can exercise at home. Please help, DM me.’

    After his health scare in July, a spokesperson for Katie told MailOnline that she was going to make lifestyle changes for her son and try to ‘reduce his weight’.  

    In June Harvey was rushed to intensive care after having trouble breathing. He experienced extreme chest-pains and a soaring temperature and was thought to be at risk of organ failure.

    Katie recalled seeing eight doctors crowding around him in the resuscitation room and said she was ‘terrified’ by the horrific ordeal. He was discharged after 10 days.  

    It has not been an easy month for the family, with Harvey also being targeted in a cruel video online.

    An emotional Katie told The Sun: ‘They pick up on him because he’s black, obese and has disabilities.’ 

    On November 5 a 52-year-old man was arrested for the racist blackface video which mocked disabled Harvey.  

    Appeal: It comes after Katie said she was hoping to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for the teenager to use during lockdown in her post shared on Instagram Stories

    In the video, a woman in fake tan says ‘If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?’ before a man in face paint responds: ‘Hello, you c**t’.

    Speaking at the time, Katie said ‘words cannot describe how upset I am’ as she revealed she had reported the post to police. 

    Due to Harvey’s complex needs, he lives in residential care, but has been home with Katie amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

    Katie is also mother to son Junior, 15, and daughter Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre and son Jett, six, and daughter Bunny, five, with estranged husband Kieran Hayler.
