Original (12/7/2020): Katie Price has revealed her son Harvey is in intensive care.

On Sunday (July 12), a representative confirmed that the 18-year-old was rushed to hospital with difficulty breathing, and is at risk of organ failure.

Katie has since taken to social media to reassure her fans that Harvey is in a stable condition.

Alongside an image of the two of them, she wrote on Twitter and Instagram: "I can confirm Harvey is in intensive care and in the best hands.

"I would like to thank the ambulance services and the hospital staff for the quick response and making him stable."

A spokesperson for Katie told The Sun: "His condition is very dangerous and Katie is terrified.

"He has a temperature of 42 degrees and is struggling to breathe. One of his conditions is adrenal failure that could cause his organs to fail and is very dangerous."

Harvey has a number of health conditions, including the rare genetic disorder Prader-Willi Syndrome, partial blindness due to Septo-optic dysplasia, diabetes, and an an underactive thyroid.

This is Harvey's second health scare in recent weeks, having previously been rushed to hospital during his sister Princess' 13th birthday party last month.

At the time, a representative told The Mail Online: "He has complex medical requirements that require close monitoring and from time to time an alert flags up.

"Katie was deeply concerned. Harvey had a temperature and presented chest pains - thankfully on this occasion his symptoms are that of picking up a common bug.

"But Katie did fear the worst - yesterday was a highly emotional day with Princess' birthday and then the sudden decline of Harvey’s health."
