They said: ‘This is most likely linked to the bug he had when he was rushed into hospital last week. It is not COVID-19, it is an unknown bug.

‘He has had chest pains and a temperature. An extremely high temp. It was 42. You could cook an egg on him. It spiked quickly and he’s had major problems breathing. 

‘The next 48 hours are critical. Harvey just really needs to do well over the next couple of days. He is having loads of tests today and being watched around-the-clock.

‘Katie is doing her best – it’s horrible – having a child with so many complex conditions is so tough.’

On Sunday it was reported that mother-of-five Katie was ‘fearing the worst’, due to Harvey’s numerous health complications meaning he was at risk of organ failure. 

The former glamour model later took to Instagram to express her gratitude towards healthcare professionals, but is said to be ‘falling apart’ as doctors warned Harvey was in a ‘perilous condition’.

A source told The Sun: ‘Katie has been preparing herself for this moment all his life and she’s been told Harvey is in a perilous condition. She’s been here before, but this time it’s far more serious.

‘She’s trying to be tough and strong, but inside she’s falling apart and feels helpless. Doctors need to get his temperature down. He’s in a really bad way.’

Harvey is believed to be seeking medical attention at Epsom Hospital in Surrey, and his ‘devastated’ mother was not permitted to stay overnight due to new visiting restrictions amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Celebrity offspring Harvey has the rare genetic disorder Prader-Willi Syndrome, is partially blind due to Septo-optic dysplasia, autistic, diabetic and has an underactive thyroid.  

Katie called an ambulance for her eldest child when she noticed he was feeling unwell before he was sent to a specialist paediatric ward.

WHAT IS PRADER-WILLI SYNDROME?

Prader-Willi syndrome is a rare genetic condition that causes problems including constant urges to eat food, restricted growth and reduced muscle tone.

Other potential issues include learning difficulties, lack of sexual development and behavioral problems such as tantrums or stubbornness.

The rare condition, which affects one in every 15,000 children born in England, is caused by a defect on chromosome number 15 – and happens by chance.

Because there is no cure, treatment aims to manage the symptoms – with parents of sufferers urged to get their children to stick to a healthy, balanced diet.

Children with the syndrome can eat up to six times more than children of the same age – and still feel hungry.

It was first described in 1956 by Swiss doctors A Prader, A Labhart and H Willi.

Addison’s disease, also known as primary adrenal insufficiency or hypoadrenalism, is a rare disorder of the adrenal gland in which it does not produce enough cortisol or aldosterone.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Katie for further comment.  

Last month, Harvey was seen being treated by paramedics at his mother’s rented Surrey mansion while sister Princess was celebrating her 13th birthday party. 

He left his mother ‘deeply concerned’ when he had contracted ‘a common bug’, and was discharged from hospital a few days after his admission.

A representative for Katie told MailOnline at the time: ‘He has complex medical requirements that require close monitoring and from time to time an alert flags up.

‘Katie was deeply concerned. Harvey had a temperature and presented chest pains – thankfully on this occasion his symptoms are that of picking up a common bug. 

‘But Katie did fear the worst – yesterday was a highly emotional day with Princess’ birthday and then the sudden decline of Harvey’s health.’

The spokesperson went on to explain that the reality star would be enforcing lifestyle changes for her son, going forward.

They said: ‘Katie is about to embark on a new regime with Harvey in a hope that she can reduce his weight.

‘Harvey’s meds leave him with an insatiable appetite – Katie is constantly battling! But now, with the help of a specialist, Katie hopes to be able to help maintain Harvey’s weight for the immediate future.

The current global health crisis has also left the mother-of-five terrified over the past months about both her son and her mother Amy, who has cancer.

‘Katie has been living in fear that COVID-19 could strike both Harvey and indeed her own mother at any time,’ the insider went on. 

‘Both have to maintain precautions despite the government lifting lockdown regulations.

WHAT CAUSES BODY TEMPERATURE TO SPIKE? 

Fevers – when the body’s internal temperature stays above 37.8C (100F) – are normally harmless and fade within days.

But if body temperature persists above 42C (108F) it can cause lasting brain damage, paediatricians warn.

However, it’s ‘very rare for the body temperature to climb this high’, according to medics at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Fevers are most commonly caused by coughs and colds but can also be triggered by kidney infections, tonsillitis and heat stroke.

Body temperature regulation is ‘a challenge’ for Prader-Willi syndrome sufferers, such as Harvey Price, one charity says.

The Prader-Willi Syndrome Association (PWSA) says patients with the genetic condition ‘have difficulty maintaining the proper body’.

The condition – thought to affect one in every 15,000 children born in England – impacts the functioning of the hypothalamus.

The hypothalamus acts as the body’s thermostat and controls internal temperature, according to Harvard Medical School experts.

Raising the body’s internal temperature is the body’s nature defence mechanism against infections because pathogens struggle to survive in warmer areas.

Drinking plenty of water and taking paracetamol can help to fight a fever. But taking a cold bath or shower can have the opposite effect.

‘Lockdown has been a challenge – Harvey hasn’t been able to go out freely. And so going out is a military precision operation.’ 

‘Harvey was upset to leave Princess on her birthday, returning home last night to lots of hugs and cuddles. 

‘Harvey will be making a full recovery. There’s never a dull moment in the Pricey household.’ 

His initial health scare was the second to affect the family in recent weeks, after NHS medic Emily Andre revealed she tested positive for coronavirus antibodies in her weekly column for OK! magazine

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

The former I’m A Celebrity star made the heartbreaking decision to send to a facility last year.

Harvey was born with septo-optic dysplasia, a condition that means the development of his optic nerve was unpredictable.

Katie also later discovered he is on the autistic spectrum, gains weight easily because he suffers from Prader–Willi syndrome, and finds mobility difficult. 

The media personality has Harvey from a relationship with his estranged father Dwight Yorke, 48, Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, with singer Peter Andre, 47, and Jett, six, and Bunny, five, with ex-stripper Kieran Hayler, 33.

Helen and Preston player Scott have been in a relationship since 2009 and got engaged in May 2018.

The couple had originally planned to marry this year, with Helen previously revealing she’d even found her dream dress, but the actress explained in Ferbruary they had decided to postpone as her younger sister was due to wed in 2020.

The soap star enthused: ‘I always wanted to have a baby, that’s what I’ve always wanted. I think it’s just made me a lot happier, and gives you perspective and helps you rationalise what’s important. I think it gives you a real purpose.

‘I feel like my girls make me feel like I can do anything. I love being a mum, I love everything of it. Sometimes I’m like “this is going to be really difficult” because I’m tired or whatever, but it is amazing as well and I really enjoy it. 

She also said she would love to have two more children and is confident she can twist footballer partner Scott’s arm.

‘I really want to have four’, she said at the time. ‘I think Scott’s like “maybe three” but I don’t know, we’ll see how we go, but I definitely want more. I’m sure I’ll get my own way eventually.’ 

In June, the actress took to her Instagram to announce she will no longer edit her pictures as she wants to set a confident example for her girls.

Helen who admitted her postpartum photos left her ‘self-conscious’, backed up her pledge by posing in a lacy pink lingerie set for a series of un-retouched snaps. 

Helen, wrote on her Stories: ‘My boobs have massively changed from pregnancies and nursing and has made me feel really self conscious the past year. My stomach has changed from my babies.’ 

Long term love: Helen and Preston player Scott have been in a realationship since 2009 and got engaged in May 2018

Helen later detailed why she decided to take the brave step, penning: ‘I’ve decided to stop editing my pictures to be a better role model to my daughters. Beautiful lingerie set @pourmoiltd.

‘I’ve been lucky enough to carry two healthy babies and nurse them both for nearly two years. My skin on my stomach has changed, my boobs massively have (no creepy comments from any creepy men here this is a post about body confidence for other women, I will just delete and block). 

‘The change in my boobs definitely has made me feel less confident in myself but I wouldn’t change a thing.

‘I have cellulite, I don’t have a big bum I have edited it in the past as it’s something I am self conscious of. I’d look at other women on Instagram and put myself down for not looking like that’

She laughed with her supportive partner as they goofed around in the water, prioritizing fun over any level of competition. 

Zoe and her husband, who each took each other’s last names upon marriage, have a very progressive approach when it comes to raising their three children.  

In an April 2019 interview with US Weekly, the Avatar actress revealed that she and Marco raise their sons in a gender-neutral household.

Part of the way they structure their lives is by making sure the children have both male and female toys, while ensuring that she Marco do not perform traditional gender roles at home.

Teasing the anticipated drop on her Instagram, the Dominican and Puerto Rican actress spoke out about the importance of wellness in her life as she announced the collaboration a few weeks back. 

‘One of the most important aspects of my life has been exercise. It keeps me healthy and happy both physically and mentally’ she said. 

Zoe has spoken out in the past about her disdain for long workouts, instead optioning 20-30 minutes of exercise that keep her going while on set for 16-hour days. 

The actress and her husband who are both in the industry prefer more engaging ways of staying in shape like going for walks or spending time on the water. 

Marco’s film Keyhole Garden which stars Zoe is currently in post-production though no news of a release date has been shared.
