Earlier in the evening, a representative for Katie revealed Harvey has been rushed to hospital with breathing difficulties.
They told The Sun Online: "His condition is very dangerous and Katie is terrified. He has a temperature of 42 degrees and is struggling to breathe. One of his conditions is adrenal failure that could cause his organs to fail and is very dangerous."
It comes only weeks after Harvey was rushed to hospital when he fell ill at his sister's birthday party.
Katie shared of the moment she realised he was unwell: "I know he’s getting bigger and I’d noticed in the past month his breathing had changed. It was at Princess’s birthday party, just after she’d done her cake and Harvey wasn’t feeling himself and had a lie down.
"And then he was getting worse and worse and I thought, 'Oh s***'. Sometimes he'll fake things, like if he doesn’t want to go to school, he'll say 'Harvey feels wobbly', or he’s got a sore throat. But I know him well enough to know if he’s trying to pull a fast one or not. He said he was getting pains, and he can deteriorate quickly, so I just used my common sense, stayed calm and called the ambulance."
