KATIE Price had to call for an ambulance to take her eldest son to hospital when he suddenly fell ill.

Harvey, who is 18, suffers from a rare genetic disorder, and is also blind, autistic and diabetic.

He was taken ill while celebrating his younger sister Princess's 13th birthday, it was reported, and was seen being carried away by paramedics.

It was claimed he needed "urgent medical care" in the scare.

Katie Price's representative told The Sun: “Harvey has been taken to a local hospital for tests - he wasn’t feeling well yesterday and today has presented symptoms that require urgent medical attention.

“Katie recognised the signs and knew when to call an ambulance. He’s expected to be discharged later today.”

Harvey lives in residential care because of his complex needs, but had been staying with his mother during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Brighton-born ex-glamour model called paramedics to their new rented home. She put her Horsham mansion up for sale last month.

It followed her heartbreaking decision to send Harvey to residential care last year.

In an episode of Katie Price: My Crazy Life in April 2019, the mum-of-five said she had no choice but to send Harvey into care and said she felt “selfish” to keep him at home.

Harvey suffers from the gentic disorder Prader-Willi Syndrome as well as an underactive thyroid and diabetes.

This is a rare genetic condition with symptoms including an excessive appetite and weight gain, learning difficulties, behavioural problems and weak muscles.

During lockdown mum-of-five Katie revealed how proud she was of him when he raised £12,000 for the NHS.

Harvey created a T-shirt design featuring a frog and a rainbow to show his support for the health service.

Katie Price told The Sun: "Harvey loves to draw – this is Harvey doing his bit for the NHS.

“The doctors and nurses have been there for Harvey from the day he was born.

“Without them he wouldn’t be where he is today – he’s already got loads of new designs ready to go.”

Harvey has discovered a love for art and has posted some examples of his work on his Instagram account.

Mr Burn said: “I saw this picture on Harvey’s Instagram account and loved it so wanted to see how we could celebrate it at the station."
