Katie Price’s son Harvey ‘lands his own reality TV show which will explore his passion for trains

Katie Price‘s son Harvey has reportedly landed his very own reality TV show which will explore his passion for trains.

The 18-year-old, who has Prader-Willi syndrome, caught the attention of TV producers earlier this year when he starred in documentary Katie Price: Harvey and Me, with his former glamour model mum, 42. 

And now Harvey looks set to follow in his famous mum’s footsteps with his own programme alongside childhood pal, and fellow train enthusiast Zack, who also appeared in the BBC documentary in January.

MailOnline have contacted representatives of Katie for comment. 

Harvey’s love of trains was evident to see in the documentary as he and Zack watched the watched the trains come in and out of Waterloo station.

Harvey, who is on the autism spectrum and was born with disabilities including partial blindness and ADHD even expertly recited a train announcement, which led to Network Rail offering him the chance to make an announcement at one of the UK’s train stations. 

‘May I have your attention please? This train is formed of 12 coaches. Platform four for the 11:34 South Western Railway service to Guildford,’ Harvey was filmed saying as he mimicked the train announcements.

Network Rail’s Media Relations Manager, Tracey O’Brien, told Metro in January: ‘Network Rail would be happy to arrange for Harvey to make an announcement at one of the Network Rail managed stations when it is safe to do so.’ 

It comes after Katie vowed she ‘won’t give up’ in her campaign to make online bullying a crime after receiving over 100,000 signatures for her Track A Troll campaign.

The former glamour model has been asking for a change in legislation that will require all social media platforms to ask users for ID after her disabled son Harvey became the victim of online trolling.

In a piece for The Independent Katie insisted she’ll do ‘whatever it takes’ to get her campaign through Parliament. 

Katie wrote that she understands concerns from some that required ID for social media users could ‘out’ members of the LGBTQ+ community or those with a criminal history. 

The star insisted her law would mean users’ accounts can be tracked through the IP address, allowing police to put a stop to online abuse, and they wouldn’t need to share any other personal information.

Katie’s petition has been backed by several stars and MP Andrew Griffith, and after reaching 100,00 signatures will now be debated in Parliament.

She wrote: ‘I’ve seen Harvey mocked and belittled since he was a small boy, because of his disabilities, and because of his race.

‘Now that he’s 18, he understands that the treatment he receives from strangers is cruel and unfair. He’s said it himself: ”People are horrible to me.” As a mother, that breaks my heart.

‘Once I get my teeth stuck into something, that’s it – there’s no giving up. I am prepared to do whatever it takes to lead the charge for kindness.’

On Monday Katie also revealed her plans to attend court and face her son Harvey’s online bullies while discussing her Track A Troll campaign on BBC News. 

The mother-of-five, whose is blind and has Prader-Willi syndrome and ADHD, previously said she was ‘over the moon’ as police moved to prosecute a troll who shared a racist blackface video while mocking her disabled son. 

And now, she is asking for a change in legislation, requiring all social media platforms to ask users for ID in hopes of reducing online hate.
