Katie Price's son Harvey is joking with his doctors in hospital after being moved out of intensive care

KATIE Price's disabled son Harvey has been joking with his doctors after being moved out of intensive care.

The 42-year-old reality star revealed last night that the 18-year-old's health had improved after nearly a week in hospital.

And today a source close to the family revealed the good news that Harvey was in high spirits, even "bantering" with the doctors and nurses who are treating him.

The improvement in Harvey's condition has come as a huge relief for Katie, with fears earlier in the week that he could have spent a long time in the ICU needing constant observation.

Last night, the star posed alongside Harvey for a picture on Instagram writing: "Hey everyone update my @officialmrharveyprice baby boy , he has been incredibly strong and brave and this evening he has improved.

"I’m so happy , it’s been so difficult , I love him so much and want to thank you all again for your support and lovely messages , this picture I’ve taken today.

"Only one drip in and moved out of icu ?????❤️❤️❤️❤️."

In the snaps, Harvey is wearing a hospital gown, with one image showing his mum affectionately kissing him on the forehead.

Fans were thrilled to hear that Harvey is on the mend, and her new boyfriend Carl Woods commented that the teen is "a total warrior."

Meanwhile, Harvey's former stepdad Kieran Hayler wrote: "Such a fighter".

Katie was left devastated when her son was rushed to hospital on Sunday with a 42C fever and breathing problems.

Thankfully he tested negatively for coronavirus, but the mother-of-five told fans that he had to stay in intensive care due to the "complex" nature of his condition.

This is the second time he has needed hospital treatment in two weeks after he fell ill at Princess’s 13th birthday at her Surrey home.

Harvey has a range of complex needs. As well as having rare genetic condition Prader-Willi syndrome, which can cause weight gain and behavioural problems, he is partially blind and on the autistic spectrum.
