Katie Price‘s son Harvey is being watched around-the-clock after he was rushed to intensive care on Sunday night.
A representative for Katie, 42, and her eldest son, 18, told MailOnline on Monday morning that ‘the next 48 hours are critical’.
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.
Worrying: Katie Price’s son Harvey is being watched around-the-clock after he was rushed to intensive care on Sunday night
‘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.’
Of mother-of-five Katie, the rep added: ‘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 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.
A spokesperson for Katie had told the publication his condition is ‘very dangerous’.
The reality star wrote on Instagram alongside a sweet image of herself with Harvey: ‘I can confirm Harvey is in intensive care and in the best hands.

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.
According to the NHS, a high temperature is usually considered to be 38 degrees or above.

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.
Doting parent: The media personality is mother to Harvey, Junior, 15, Princess, 13, Jett, six, and Bunny, five
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.

Ozzy Osbourne discusses the controversy over his 1980’s song Suicide Solution
Ozzy Osbourne has discussed the controversy over his 1980’s song Suicide Solution and what the lyrics actually meant in a candid new interview.
In a chat with Rock Classics Radio on Apple Music Hits on Thursday, Ozzy spoke about the media storm that surrounded the hit and his wife Sharon’s reaction.
The music star, 71, said: ‘Suicide Solution wasn’t written about, ”Oh that’s the solution, suicide.’
Honest: Ozzy Osbourne has discussed the controversy over his 1980’s song Suicide Solution and what the lyrics actually meant in a candid new interview
‘I was a heavy drinker and I was drinking myself to an early grave. It was suicide solution. Wine is fine but whiskey’s quicker. Suicide is slow with liquor. That’s what I was doing for a long while. I just sort of stopped.’
Five years after the song’s release, the parents of teenager John McCollum filed a lawsuit, alleging that their son took his own life after listening to the hit which featured on his Blizzard of Ozz album.
Recalling the case brought by McCollum’s family and the media frenzy, Ozzy said he received an urgent phone call when he was in England from his wife Sharon.
He said: ‘I got a phone call and Sharon said, ”Pack your bag. Get on a plane to Los Angeles. You’ve got to get out here right now.’
Controversy: In a chat with Rock Classics Radio on Apple Music Hits on Thursday, Ozzy spoke about the media storm that surrounded the hit and his wife Sharon’s reaction
‘I said, ”Wait a minute. What’s happened?’ She goes, ‘Just do it. Just get on the god damn plane.’
‘I want to know what they hell is going on. What’s happened? So I get on the plane and I’m flying for 11 and a half hours, get to LA, go through the customs and I come out the customs, not knowing any of what’s going on and there are 200 cameramen there.
‘So as I’m coming through the gate, I’m thinking I’m walking in front of some film star or something else. I’m looking over my shoulder like, ‘What’s going on?’ And so somebody pokes a mic in my face and goes, ‘What have you got to say about the suicide?’
‘I’m thinking, ‘What are you talking about?’ So I’m getting the car, it’s right there, and Sharon tells me.’
Struggle: The revelations about the song come after Ozzy went public this January with his Parkinson’s battle, after being diagnosed with the disease in February 2019
After landing in the US, Ozzy was at a ‘very heavy, very intensive’ press conference in LA with his lawyer Harold Weissman.
He recalled: ‘The difference in them, the public, reporters and the serious press are nothing like music press. They give you some really difficult questions to answer. And the lawyer’s just, ‘Don’t you say a word. Let me do all the talking.’
‘It’s very difficult to sit there quiet when they’re throwing questions at you all the time. But it was a very unnerving situation.’
Battle: He announced in February that he was canceling the North American leg of his No More Tours II concert gigs, owing to an excruciating neck injury
Ozzy went public this January with his Parkinson’s battle, after being diagnosed with the disease in February 2019.
He announced in February that he was canceling the North American leg of his No More Tours II concert gigs, owing to an excruciating neck injury.
What’s more, he suffered a fall last year and required spinal surgery, ultimately scrapping his tour dates for 2019.
Ozzy was meant to hit the road again this year, but scrapped the North American leg of his tour so that he could seek treatment in Switzerland – only for the coronavirus lockdowns to leave him confined to his home and unable to travel to Europe.
Although Ozzy has not been seen out in public in months, he did appear with his family on Celebrity Watch Party with a finale that aired on 23 July.
The reality show is a take-off of the UK show Gogglebox and offers a glimpse at celebrities in their homes watching and reacting to TV.
Prior to that, he was seen in January, looking a little more like his old self, when he attended the Grammys with a walking cane alongside his daughter Kelly.
Despite his recent health crises and reduced mobility, the father-of-six and former reality star has repeatedly declared that he will never abandon showbusiness or rock and roll.
