KATIE Price has revealed she has received threats from gangs planning to kidnap her son Harvey – one with a £1 million ransom.

The former glamour model, who was born in Brighton, has opened up about her worries her eldest child could be kidnapped.

Harvey, 19, is diagnosed with Prader-Willi syndrome, autism and blindness.

Katie admitted she felt "unsafe in her own home" as she constantly "looked over her shoulder" because of the threats.

The mother-of-five revealed the details of two of the threats in her new book Harvey and Me.

In an excerpt published by The Mirror, the 43-year-old revealed the first threat came when Harvey was just four, while the latest was only "a few years ago".

"The police had intel a gang was planning to force me off the road and seize Harvey for a £1m ransom," Katie said.

“They had been watching us and knew Harvey's school. It was utterly terrifying."

A second threat saw Scotland Yard warn Katie a gang were planning to "stage a car accident" so that they could "grab Harvey".

While a third saw the celebrity sent "anonymous emails threatening to kidnap him and slash his face" if she didn't pay up the £50,000 ransom.

"Feeling unsafe in your own home is awful," she said. "I still have that feeling of looking over my shoulders - I don't think that will ever go away."

The revelations come after broke her silence after her drink-drive crash, for which she insists she has taken "full responsibility".

She said she "acknowledges and takes full responsibility for her actions" that saw her flip her BMW in a crash near Partridge Green.

Katie admitted to drink driving while disqualified and without insurance following the accident near her home on the B2135 last month.

"She knows they were wrong and apologises. Kate is deeply loved, and she loves her family,” her family told the Sunday Mirror.

“We are all there for her right now – and her children, who she loves dearly, are giving her strength as a mum.”

Katie pleaded guilty to a string of offences at Crawley Magistrates’ Court in September.

The former model also has opened up about feeling as though she can "breathe again" for the first time after Harvey was sent to residential college.

Harvey lived with his mum and siblings until August this year, when he moved to Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.

Katie said in the book extract: "It’s so far from my home in Horsham, West Sussex. But I’ve got to let him have the best shot at life.

"Now he’s there, I can imagine it could be so easy to say, ‘I don’t need to see him’. But I don’t want that to ever happen.

"I’ve been responsible for him all his life, and now it feels weird to have this freedom."

Katie has four other children - Junior, Princess, Jett, and Bunny.

Having Harvey staying at the residential college means she now has more time to focus on her own wellbeing, as well as those of her other children.

She said: "If something dramatic happens in my life, and let’s be honest, that’s a common occurrence, at least I don’t have to be thinking, ‘Who’s going to look after Harvey?’

"It’s a massive weight off my shoulders. I feel like now, for the first time, I can breathe. And even though I do, I shouldn’t feel guilty for that."
