  • A terrified Katie learned that her disabled son Harvey had been rushed to hospital while she was away from home

    Katie Price was ‘in pieces’ last night, after her disabled son Harvey was rushed to the hospital with breathing difficulties.

    The glamour model broke down in tears after hearing from the family nanny that Harvey had fallen ill, while she was away on her nationwide promotional book tour.

    The 31-year-old immediately hurried to be by his side, telling a friend: ‘I have to be there for Harvey. He’s my little Angel and he needs his mummy.’

    Very worried‘ ex-husband Peter Andre also instantly rushed to Harvey’s bedside after hearing the news.

    ‘Harvey had a massive temperature and couldn’t keep any food down either,’ said an inside source. ‘More worryingly, his breathing was also a huge concern and there was no option but to urgently seek medical advice.’

    Doctors have expressed that they wish to keep Harvey at the East Surrey Hospital for 48 hours to monitor him.

    ‘The doctors weren’t taking any chances,’ said the source. ‘If he doesn’t get any better, he might be there for a while. It could well be complications arising from potential swine flu, but they don’t know yet. He’s a very poorly young man.’

    Harvey, who’s father is footballer Dwight Yorke, suffers from septo-optic dysplasia – meaning that he is partially blind and needs constant care.

    Katie has cancelled her upcoming book signings until further notice.
