Speaking to The Sun, she explained: ‘He’ll smash things up if you say no. I’ve had to re-plaster my walls because he’ll bash holes in them with his head.

‘He knows what nice things taste of. I’ll give him sweet potato chips instead of real fries but he knows the difference.’

She continued: ‘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.’

Katie went on to say that anyone in the house daren’t leave leftover food lying around as Harvey is ‘really quick’ and will be sure to eat it.

Continuing to outline her struggle with Harvey’s insatiable appetite, Katie previously explained to the publication how she’s taken drastic steps to try and reduce his eating and has even started to padlock the fridge.

The star told how Harvey desperately needs to loose the weight or he’ll end up dying, with Katie adding ‘I don’t want to lose him.’

Describing his condition as a ‘cruel and horrible illness’, the reality star went on to describe how her son is constantly hungry and will lose his temper if he doesn’t get his food. 

Harvey has put on two stone in just two months and amid this increase, it has now become ‘critical’ for Harvey to loose some weight with doctors telling Katie that her teenager is at risk of a heart attack.

With Katie at her wits’ end, she stated that she’d do ‘anything’ to help her boy, but things are ‘hard work’.  

MailOnline has contacted Katie’s representative for a comment. 

However it is not easy for Katie to get her son exercising and changing his diet, with her recently appealing for gym equipment on Instagram.

She also said the teenager has also been known to eat in his sleep and was once caught looking in a pal’s bag for snacks as well as eating a pizza from frozen.

Katie also said that Harvey, who now wears 7XL clothes, doesn’t understand why she wants him to lose weight. 

The worried mum explained how he gets breathless and sweaty just walking up the stairs and that she agonises over his increasing weight, because now the weight is on, the ‘damage’ has already been done.  

At the start of November Katie appealed to fans for help sourcing gym equipment ahead of a second lockdown starting in the UK which will force gyms to close.

Doting mum: Katie said it has now become ‘critical’ for Harvey to loose some weight with doctors telling her that the teenager is at risk of a heart attack 

Katie wrote: ‘Can anybody help. I’m looking to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for Harvey that can take his weight, 28 half stone, and other gym bits as through lockdown I have to make sure he can exercise at home. Please help, DM me.’

After his health scare in July, a spokesperson for Katie told MailOnline that she was going to make lifestyle changes for her son and try to ‘reduce his weight’.  

In June Harvey was rushed to intensive care after having trouble breathing. He experienced extreme chest-pains and a soaring temperature and was thought to be at risk of organ failure.

Katie recalled seeing eight doctors crowding around him in the resuscitation room and said she was ‘terrified’ by the horrific ordeal. He was discharged after 10 days.  

It has not been an easy month for the family, with Harvey also being targeted in a cruel video online.

An emotional Katie told The Sun: ‘They pick up on him because he’s black, obese and has disabilities.’ 

On November 5 a 52-year-old man was arrested for the racist blackface video which mocked disabled Harvey.  

Appeal: It comes after Katie said she was hoping to rent a treadmill and rowing machine for the teenager to use during lockdown in her post shared on Instagram Stories

In the video, a woman in fake tan says ‘If someone says something horrible to Harvey, what do we say?’ before a man in face paint responds: ‘Hello, you c**t’.

Speaking at the time, Katie said ‘words cannot describe how upset I am’ as she revealed she had reported the post to police. 

Due to Harvey’s complex needs, he lives in residential care, but has been home with Katie amid the coronavirus pandemic. 

Katie is also mother to son Junior, 15, and daughter Princess, 13, with ex-husband Peter Andre and son Jett, six, and daughter Bunny, five, with estranged husband Kieran Hayler.
