Katie Price’s son Harvey has been released from hospital.

The 18-year-old, who has a number of health problems, was taken to hospital in an ambulance during sister Princess’s 13th birthday party after falling ill on Monday.

However, a representative for Price, 42, has confirmed Harvey has been discharged after having tests.

“Harvey was kept under observation and then discharged last night,” the spokesperson told the Sun.

"He was home in time to enjoy a slice of Princess's birthday cake. He picked up a bug, which led to an elevated temperature and the ambulance was called as a precaution.

"Katie is very glad he's back at home."

When approached for comment by the Evening Standard, Katie's representative added the former glamour model was particularly grateful to the ambulance crew that looked after Harvey.

“Harvey will be making a full recovery,” the rep said. “Katie knows from experience never to leave anything especially when he is symptomatic to chance.

“The paramedics were simply first class in their care, Katie would like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank-you again to our NHS front liners in the amazing selfless work they continue to do.”

Harvey has a range of complex needs. As well as having the rare genetic disorder Prader-Willi syndrome, which is linked to behavioural issues and weight gain, Harvey is on the autistic spectrum and suffers from partial blindness.

While he usually lives in residential care, he has spent lockdown with Katie.

Her other children have been isolating with their fathers; with Princess and Junior living with Peter Andre, his wife Emily MacDonagh and their younger half-siblings Amelia and Theo, while Bunny and Jett are in the care of their dad, Kieran Hayler.

However, the entire family came together to celebrate Princess’s birthday in Katie's rented Surrey mansion.

Earlier in the day, Price wrote on her Instagram page: “Happy birthday to my absolute world Princess.

“My first baby girl turning a teenager. She literally is me in EVERYWAY. Words are not enough to describe how much I love you!”
