KATIE Price's 27st son Harvey has revealed he's taken up running after she warned his weight could kill him.
The 18-year-old sent his mum a sweet message today, with a photo of him enjoying the the sunshine.
He wrote: "Hi mummy. I did some of a lot running before richley house this Afternoon because I feel very happy and very healthy doing some running. I'll Sure see you soon Mummy love from Harvey."
Katie has previously told of her agony over son Harvey's weight soaring to nearly 29st.
He's since lost two stone after mum-of-five Kate, 42, warned: “He’ll need to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. I don’t want to lose him.”
Disabled Harvey, 18, has a condition which makes him crave food. Doctors warn he is at serious risk of a heart attack if he does not lose weight urgently.
His obsession with food is linked to his disabilities — which make him always feel hungry.
Lockdown saw Harvey pile on almost two stone – and it became so bad that Katie was recently forced to beg fans for help in finding a treadmill and rowing machine in a desperate bid to get her son exercising during lockdown.
She told The Sun in November: “It’s a cruel illness. He feels hungry all the time,” she tells The Sun.
“Every time I feed him, it’s killing him.
“Even though it makes him happy, it’s cruel of me to do it.
“He needs to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. He doesn’t deserve that. I don’t want to lose him.
“He’s only 18, he’s got his whole life ahead of him. I will do anything to help.”
Last week Katie splashed £10,000 on a pair of hi-tech exercise bikes.
A source said: "Harvey needs to lose around ten stone to get back to a good weight for him and he seems to enjoy going on the bike so she snapped a couple up.
"Katie wants to get in shape too, so she's hoping they can work out together ahead of him starting college in September."
Harvey has Prader–Willi syndrome, autism and is partially blind.
