Katie recently opened up about the heartbreaking impact Prader-Willi Syndrome has on Harvey’s health, with the disorder making the teen constantly feel hungry.
She told The Sun that she fears for his life after his weight shot up to 29 stone, with Harvey getting angry when he is denied food.
Katie told how she’s been forced to padlock the family fridge to stop her son binge eating in the night, adding: “It’s a cruel and horrible illness where he feels hungry all the time — and if he doesn’t get food he gets angry. It’s hard work.

“It’s not what he eats in the day, it’s what he eats when I don’t see him. I’ve tried hiding food but he’ll find it.
“He even eats in his sleep. He’ll walk downstairs and eat whatever he can find. We’ve even found him rummaging through friends’ bags for food.”
Doctors have warned the worried mum that Harvey’s weight puts him at serious risk of a heart attack, with Katie poignantly adding: “He’ll need to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. I don’t want to lose him.”
