Katie Price says she has agreed to do a follow-up to documentary Harvey & Me.

Speaking on Loose Woman to panellists Nadia Sawalha, Linda Robson, Stacey Solomon and Kaye Adams on Friday, the mum-of-five confirmed that they have said yes to a second instalment.

The BBC show was widely praised as fans got to see Katie's challenging family life.

Harvey was born with Septic Optic Dysplasia, a rare disorder that affects brain function.

He also has Prader-Willi syndrome and is autistic – and Katie says his behaviour can sometimes get out of control.

Appearing from home via video link, Katie confirmed she has given the green light to a second show.

"The response has been amazing," she told the panel.

"People have judged me in the media, but it doesn't matter. I'm a real person and a mum with a child.


"It goes to show what connection we had and people really loved it.

She confirmed there will be a follow-up, saying: “Everyone is like, ‘Can you do a part 2?’ so it looks like we are going to do a part 2 now because people want to know what college [we choose] what happens next, and if he does his announcement thing on the trains, that’s been a massive thing.”

Katie added she could discover the residential college that Harvey will be moving in to next month.

She added that Harvey is loving life in his temporary home near their family base.

But she revealed viewers didn't get to see the full picture of her son's struggle – as it wouldn't have been fair on him.

"I didn't show him having a full meltdown in the programme," she added.

"I didn't want to expose Harvey about and it can be disturbing to watch."

On the programme, viewers saw the star speak to her friend Anna Kennedy, who has two autistic sons.

Anna warns: "If the placement doesn't work for Harvey you don't want it to start effecting his mental health, his wellbeing.

"Then he might start self-harming or harming others."

Katie then revealed: "He does that when he gets anxiety. He's got scars, it's when he gets worried."

Anna then suggested Harvey could be sectioned if his behaviour gets worse.

"Not that I want to scare you, but if the placement doesn't work the local authority can come in and forcibly take Harvey away if they feel he is a risk to himself and others," she added.

"He could end up in a mental health unit or an assessment and treatment unit.

"Once they've gone in there it's really difficult to get them out as they've been sectioned. As a parent it's really difficult."
