KATIE Price has been flooded with offers of free personal training for son Harvey after revealing he now weighs 29 stone.
Kindhearted Sun readers have reached out to the reality star with free gym equipment for Harvey, 18, to use, too.
Yesterday, Katie spoke to The Sun about her fears that Harvey, who is autistic and struggles with the excessive appetite caused by his genetic condition Prader-Willi Syndrome, would die after piling on weight.
His condition can impact muscle tone and functions of the nervous system and sparks the constant desire to eat.
She begged fans for gym equipment – which she plans to paint green, Harvey’s favourite colour – to use as he can’t leave the house due to the pandemic.
And generous fans have rushed to help after reading Katie’s emotional interview in The Sun.
Katie’s publicist confirmed to The Sun she’d been “inundated” by emails from personal trainers offering their services for free.
And on Instagram, Katie has been sent messages from gym equipment suppliers and fans offering to train Harvey at home.
Mum-of-five Kate, 42, says: “He’ll need to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. I don’t want to lose him.”
Within two months, disabled Harvey has piled on almost two stone and is now tipping the scales at 28st 7lb.
Katie explains: “I tell him he’ll die and he says, ‘No, don’t be silly, Mummy’s only joking’.
"He doesn’t understand. He’s always been a big boy, always been chubby, but now it’s ridiculous.
“His clothes are 7XL, there are only two shops on the internet where I can get clothes for him.
“He walks up the stairs and he’s sweating and out of breath.
“I’m really upset and worried about Harvey’s weight because now it’s on, the damage is done.
Vulnerable Harvey was admitted to hospital in July with breathing problems and a high temperature.
Katie was told he was at risk of organ failure and a coma, and feared he was having a heart attack.
Harvey did not test positive for Covid-19, but spent ten days in intensive care due to the “complex” nature of his medical needs.
