Katie Price considering 'putting son Harvey into care because he is a danger to others'

TV

told Victoria Derbyshire today that she may be forced to place 16-year-old into residential care because he has become a “danger to himself”.

The Loose Women star said: “He’s a danger to himself. For the first time ever, I’m thinking he might have to go [into] residential [care] Monday to Friday.

“He knows if he kicks off in the morning, the driver won’t take him to school. So he’s sussed that and he’s missing out on his education.”

She continued: “It’s so hard. I’ve never had respite, I haven’t got a carer with him, I do it all myself. But I’m really having to think about it.

“I hate it, because he’s my life. Do you know what I mean? But I’ve got to do what’s best for him but it won’t be for ever.”

Katie added: “When he’s smashing things, and the kids are scared of him because he’s big, he’ll chase them and stuff. I’ve just got to do it for him.

“If there’s anyone out there who could give me some advice on what it’s like and how to cope when they go in residential… We’ll find it really hard.”
